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

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.
