I found they didn't always fire right up if you leave your lights on the automatic position. So now after driving I turn the lights to off position, and when I turn them on I make sure they fire.

If left in on position while not lit, they can be damaged. If it won't turn on first try ever, it may be damaged.

Try swapping the ballasts to see you can narrow down the problem. And check the bulbs for darkness, shadows or cracks along the exterior wire.

If its still not working, let me know. I have a second kit collecting dust.
