Default HID Xenon Headlights cutting out intermittnetly

Has anyone had issues with their HID Xenon headlights cutting out? What was your issue? My right side intermittently cuts out in cold weather. Any suggestions?

That is a damn good question the ones on my Civic do that when I first turn them on. I have to turn them on and off until they both come on.

It's a problem with the ballast. I have them on both my mustang and my trailblazer. On my trailblazer that happens anytime it's below 60* outside. After I drive for a while and the engine warms things up a bit they work fine. I talked to the place where i bought them and they said it is very common with aftermarket HID's and sent me another ballast.

Sew-fst06 is right your problem is in your ballast boxes like he said they will act up in cold weather but sometimes they will go bad completely, thats what happened to mine, so i just looked up the correct ballast boxes on ebay and got them sent to me for about 20 bucks.

Have you guys had any success with a particular brand for the ballasts?

wOULDN'T YOU be better off with the digital ballast that are ultra slim?
Is this a common problem of having HID lights.
Plus can we have both HID low beams and high beams in our cars without losing the flash to pass feature like other cars?

I'm surprised at the bountiful response to a headlight question in a Wheel and Tire forum. Nice work, guys.

You mean you have problems in both cars both involving the ballast?
I wonder that sooner or later will the ballast give problems or go out from vibration and usage.
