HID Owners - Bulb or Ballast?
Hi all, seems ages since I signed on here - hope all ur lovely alfa's are behaving through the winter months. Sadly mine is not, but hopefully it's not a big issue...........
I've got aftermarket HIDs (35w) and today we seem to have developed a problem with the drivers side. It turns on no problem, gets up to full power and then turns off. So I turn it on again, starts up no problem, gets up to full power and then turns off again. Sometime it stays on for a minute, but not much longer.
I noticed it was out a few days ago when waiting behind someone at a junction. Turned it off, turned it on and it was fine, but now it won't stay on. Also just before it went out today I noticed it was flickering quite a lot.
No problem with the passenger side whatsoever.
Anyone had this? I'm going to swap the bulbs round tomorrow when I can see what I'm doing to try and narrow the problem down but any advice would be appreciated. Ive never had HID's before and wondered if this is just what happens when they come to the end of their life?
