Isnt the harness just the wiring?? If thats the case, then yea..I tried wiggling the wires due to the fact that that precisely what mine buddy claimed to do becuz the samething happened to him, yet nothing...I think im gonna try it somemore..I yes, really think that is a wiring problem..but the again they have functioned for a while, for this reason why not work now? i really do not desire to order an ext HIDS...any an ext suggestions?
Try swapping the end your great ballast w/ the one thats exhilaration up.........if the bulb lights ,then you know you have actually a poor ballast, which ns betting is her prob.

list of suggestions:1) try to solve this trouble first2) while waiting on the solve, stimulate a relay harness through inline fuses for your kit3) giving the MFS is not toast, install brand-new harness, and also enjoy her HID"s through the satisfaction of understanding that you space blinding anyone on the road with the included quality of no frying your wiring (which you might have currently done)4) bring to dodge dealer and request brand-new wiring exploit $$

**Update** I freshly was told from members on here that mine harness might be toast...welll I determined to take it my "supposed" damaged HID bulb out and also attach it to the harness of the properly reliable HID bulb that I have actually that is still functioning..well the samething happens...It just makes a loud rattle sound together it flickers...then simply turns off..it practically looks like it is trying to revolve on yet quits..I climate attached the original HID bulb ago to that harness and also that bulb works as usual...so as far as the harness concept thats history..thank god i didnt take it it come dodge and also order a brand-new harness..so if anyone disagrees..I would say mine one HID pear is toast? Correct?
Why don"t you simply switch the bulbs ~ above the same ballast. If the doesn"t happen, its your bulb.As far as you thinking your safe from your harness frying, your sadly mistaken. Play v fire and also eventually girlfriend will acquire burned. Upgrade her stock harness with a relay harness turn off the battery. You"ll conserve both her MFS and also stock wiring must something happen. Dodge has actually probably one of the worst wiring in the business. But what carry out I know....
^^^^ hear to the man, He yes, really knows his sh*t about hid"s and retrofit"s. I setup on making harnesses because that 9007 bulb format if you would certainly be interested. Im functioning on gauging interest then ending up being a seller here on the site.

Your bulb would flicker because it obviously can"t finish the process of igniting. Remember, HID "bulbs" room actually capsules. In ~ those capsules room salts, unequal a filament in a halogen bulb. The salt turns right into gasious kind thru a arc the jumps end it in ~ high voltage. This is exactly how you acquire "light" indigenous actual xenon gas. This is totally different 보다 the gimmick "xenon-gas" to fill halogen bulbs so don"t confuse the two.As because that the harness, there space several carriers who make upgraded relay harnesses. Simply google it...or make your own. The info just how to do it is ~ above here and also on www.hidplanet.com/forums. Together for the mixed things others have told you, the probably due to the fact that they don"t recognize what they room talking about, even if they room some ASE certified mechanic at evade or your finest friend. Physics don"t lie. Your stock auto is not intended to take it the abuse ballasts absent out. The is why you view upgraded relay harnesses with quality fog light kits and also all that. It"s due to the fact that they know your car isn"t draft to carry the extra load (read amperage) that the added (read no stock) lighting/electrical tools causes. Sure you could not experience any kind of problems today, tomorrow, next week, following year....but.....you could experience a serious problem at any time. The inquiry is, carry out you feel comfortable riding roughly knowing her harness or MFS might go out on her at anytime? therefore a upgraded harness is lull of mind security discovering you won"t be stranded who without lamp and likewise won"t be having to spend number of hunder, periodically over a thousand dollars come repair your wiring if something to be to happen.
