Exclamation Eagle Eye Problem

ever since i put my eagle eyes in i have had problem with them. the lights (not the halos) will not even come on sometimes it just does it randomly. i dont understand why they do this. the person i bought them from on here said they were fine but im kinda getting frustrated and thinking bout just takin them out if i cant get them to act right. they have the hid set up in them as well but i bought them from him like that. any help would be appreciated cuz i rly wnt to keep them cuz they just look so nice when they actually work for me...

Sounds like either a bad ground or your ballasts are going bad.

Its the ballasts, they where used as the DRL's and they dont last long that way.

Ballast...I have Eagle Eyes, and have replace both ballasts, bulbs, and wiring harnesses. The problem is the ECM, I believe doesn't recognize the power of the HID/projector.

Ballast roughly $40, easy to change out. Just disconnect old one, snap in the new one.

Ballasts are SenLite. Got them from a local shop here in Oceanside (Pro Customs). Bulbs are H9 8000K, got them on Amazon. The wiring harnesses also came from Pro Custom.
