How did you wire it? The relays are there for a reason, startup current on HIDs is WAAAAAY above steady-state values. No blown fuses with mine..

Take your time, and secure/waterproof each plug. You'd be amazed how many things disconnect due to vibrations.. and flickering HIDs reduce their lifetime.

Also, don't forget that the wires after the ballast have a kV-level startup voltage, while the wires into the ballast can flow tens of amps of startup current... so don't shove in a voltmeter everywere, or check for hot wires with your tongue
