HID Xenon problem

i just installed xenon lights on my TJ and the driver side headlight flickers slightly. I dont know if its a problem with the setup or if its something about the oem wiring of the jeep.

if they are high wattage you should use relays.

i had the same problem. on my hid-system was the burner damaged. i replaced the burner and: flicker-free.

but you SHOULD USER RELAYS!!!!!!!! otherwise you kill your light/flasher-switch.

im making my own relay, i understand the 30 goes to the battery positive terminal with a 20 amp fuse, and the 86 is grounded anywhere on the jeeps chassis, i have that done but not connected of course. but as for 85 and 87 i would like some clarity from someone that knows this relay setup more than me, im so eager to get this finished so i can stop annoying people hahaha
thanks

ok for anybody wanting closure on the same problem i found a very helpful site, make sure you read the whole thread because the writer mixed up two wires on the relay, people brought this to his/her attention and the correct wiring is explained.

pin 87 goes to (in ur case) the head light
pin 85 gets connected to the stock 12v source

pin 85 is like the signal pin to click the relay on
