might be the ballast if the light actually arcs for a little bit.

what kind of kit do you have?

yeah, any hid kit is pretty crappy. i had parts fail under warranty when i h ad an hid kit.

if everything was working correctly for a period of time and then stopped working one day, you are probably looking at an equipment malfunction.

your best bet would be to lose the HID kit (they are horrible even when working correctly) and put the stock spec halogen bulbs back in

if you still want HIDs get a set of 04 sti headlights or do a retrofit using s2k projectors
