Question Re: HID Flickering fix???

[QUOTE=HIDGUY;878010]Wait why are you guys telling him to get a Can-Bus system or HID Cap's? That is not the issue...the issue is either a ballast or bulb issue (DC ballast with AC bulbs or vice versa) Or its obviously a power issue which a relay harness will fix. The other issues you guys are telling him to get can and will damage his headlight system. Just saying..taking it from the guys that do this for a living and don't always do or believe what you see on the internet. Just saying the choice is yours.

Wrong...if he reverse the polarity he will not get power to the ballast. there is only one way to power HID's they either turn on or they don't with polarity issues. You cant reverser polarity to

Ok sure what ever guess I did not fix my issue by fliping the polarity.

Yes it will fix your issue if the harness is swapped. But the HID kit will not turn on. This is not a method to fix flickering. HID Kits and systems do not work that way.

Here is the thing if you have the knowledge to make a harness then yes you can make a harness. For ME at least i could not make a harness...my installer that's a different story he can make a harness himself. Look at it like this. You are messing with your electrical system. Electrical Systems can cause fire if there is a fault. Would recommend purchasing a relay over trying to make one and having one go bad.

Trust me when saying this...sometimes its better just to shell out the extra 25 bucks instead of having the headaches. Ive seen the stuff that can happen and the aftermath of stuff not properly installed. Not a pretty sight.
