do your HIDs do this?

on my kit when I go to turn off the lights, its like they have a 1-3 second delay before they go off, I'm just wandering if anyone else's kit does this and how can it be changed... I have my ground set to the frame, and power coming right off the battery, so is this normal?

Yes, that is normal. There is nothing wrong and there is nothing to change.

good to know I'm not the only one...lol I was just wandering cause it looks cool with just HIDs and no corners for that few split seconds... wish it would stay like that till you turn the signal and they flash...

I found that out when i installed my hi/lo harness. If you don't use a hi/lo harness, it won't do that. I'm soon to find out if it'll do it with my relay harness here in a few days.
