I have a set of HIDs ive had in my 03 ranger for a while now and all of the sudden they both stopped working. High and low beams. When i switch back to stock bulbs the stockers work fine. I checked grounds and fuses i even tried swapping another HID bulb in and nothing worked. I moved the ground directly to the negative on m battery so i assume that would be a fine spot for it. Theres one 30a fuse that is in the kit and it doesnt look blown but i dont have a spare to check it with. What are the chances both ballasts fried i wonder?
havn't heard of both ballasts taking a dump at the same time. Check that harness and all connections....but.....isthere a relay in the harness? the one that came with the hid's? If so, I suspect the relay is bad.
That doesn't look like a normal bosch pattern relay. That's a custom part for the system you have that is handling the sensing and switching. If it is crapped out, you will probably need to build a customized version for yourself.
I don't know if that harness has a relay socket or not, take off the heatshrink on the bottom of the black box and see if there is something the relay just plugs into or if each wire is connected to each pin on the relay seperatly.
