HID's going off and on...HElp!
Ok, noth my HID's are turning off and on...at random. Sometimes only one will work...Then outta nowhere it turns on and the other one turns off. I swear to God. Is it a short? Are they dying? I don't know a lot about HID lighting so any help you can offer would be awesome. rofl

Doesn't sound like it...

If I were you I would take it back to the place it was installed...It almost sounds like the ballast is dying idunno
