Do you have a hid relay and resistor wiring harness?

I have had a problem also. I have a relay and the work fine but the actual hids only work as my high beams not as my regular lights.

Are you sure you have everything plugged in right? Make sure u do because I had a problem with only one of my lights flickering on mine and the issue was as simple as plugging in one of the wires wrong.

I have a relay harness but it dosent have a resistor on it. The harness that goes to the bulb itself had a tiny resistor. I was told I need to get a capacitor to bring the voltage up. It's only cutting out my left bulb and the right side is fine. Minor buzzing noise. Thanks

I bought a delta fog light set up just for the jk bumper fogs. They are all metal housing heat, water , shock resistant. And they are seriously bright! The color it burns at is 6000k looks like a nice bright white with that perfect tint of blue
