Default HId info please

i just ordered and installed a hid kit dont kno the name as of right now ... it works fine so far i have a system and i know that i didnt really have a problem when the bass kicked the lights would dim very slightyl but now that im not useing the relay and the kit is useing stock wires i was wondering if that might be a problem of mine . also on my 07 impreza it has day time runners and it seem that the amt of power that uses is less then when the lights are on regularly. i bring that up because when the car was idle with the lights off and the day time runners one of the lights started to flicker ... and also if my lights are on and i roll up the windows nothing but if they are up and i dont kno and i keep my hand on the up switch they also begin to flicker... but becides that no other problems ... any info on what the problems might be ? (4 got to addd i got 50 watt balasts )

Besides your inability to use sentances or paragraphs...

If your kit came with a relay USE IT!! if it didn't BUY ONE! don't use your stock wires.

As far as DRL's disable them, use the search button and you will find what you need i'm sure.

BTW attempting to figure out what the hell you typed took more time than it did to type this which is aweful.

From what I've read, the DRL (daytime running lights) runs half wattage of the bulb. It doesn't do that by just capping the voltage to 6V (from the full 12V). Instead, they regulated it in a sinusoidal wave from 0 to 12V. Since the human eye cannot detect the change of light in a very accurate reading, it will perceive as half of the light, which is 6V.

I would suggests rephrasing your original posts as it's pretty hard to read your questions. It took me a whole minute to digest what you are trying to say regarding DRL. Punctuations are made for a reason.

That aside, first, I would suggest you disable your DRL as running HID with DRL is not good for the ballast nor HID bulb. HID is meant to take 12V and not anything in between. And turning the HID on and off continuously will cause damage to the bulbs itself.

I'll let others answer the power windows and lights questions...
