Are they a good name brand, or some low price point system? I have installed many cheap eBay HID kits that just have shit ballasts/igniters that only work intermittently if at all. Are the ballasts working fine for a bit but then burning out? Maybe a harness upgrade from Daniel Stern would do some good for you; it's not a bad idea to use one regardless.

Get Hella HID Projectors. They are a little pricey but are reliable and work amazingly well!

Quality HIDs

Hi Rubi TJ,

I would recommend HIDextra. I got my kits from them.
love my new HID kits! excellent customer service and great quality products.

Was very easy to install, plug and play, no wire-cutting unlike some kits. My new HID lights give the car the aggressive look and improved visibility that I wanted.

Highly recommended HID vendor! Posting photos sooon!

And they have anew blog too, you may want check this out -->

Did you put relays on the input of the ballast? and make sure the ground is good.. as in bare metal, no paint, good and tight...
