hid headlight kit problems
hello ive just had a hid 8000k kit put on my car and im having problems with the instalation . its a 2005 525 diesel e60 model.

when i turn ignition on without running engine the kit works perfect and looks great buy when i turn the engine on after a short while they start to flicker then go of compleatly but if im driving then turn the lights on they work fine while im moving then when i have to stop at some traffic lights etc they flicker then go of. have you any idea what the problem might be and could you maybe point me in the right direction as it stands im unable to use the car at night at moment due to this. your help would be greatly appreciated.

sounds like a loose connection or maybe not a good enough connection somewhere along the wiring

I think I agree, likely a ground isn't good.

When you're considering an upgrade for your vehicle, it's easy to be tempted into going for the loud car stereo speakers, flashy rims and tires, or sleek window tinting. But there are a number of options that are designed for practicality over aesthetics, namely car alarms, remote starters, and HID headlights. Most people are aware of the practical benefits of car alarms and car starters, while the concept of upgraded headlights remains unfamiliar. However, an increasingly popular trend among in-the-know vehicle owners has been installing alternative types of headlights to suit different visibility, safety, and energy-efficiency preferences.
