HID kit with Relay box - Flickering problem

Hi!

Anyone ever bought one of these kit? There is a lot of wires on this one, and after i finished install it, the light start flickering immediatly on the passenger side, driver side did'nt work. I really don't know what to do. I'm pretty sure i hook it up well, maybe the wires in the blue socket are not at the right place like it happened on other kits.

im pretty sure this one will work with your kit
HID Kits, BMW Aftermarket Bumpers & Lighting, DEPO - DDM Tuning

get me some better pics of the connections and ill let you know im 99% sure it will work just looking at what you have but pics would help

its really easy to hook it up just look at the plugs on the relay kit and look at your hid connections you cant hook it up wrong unless you hook the wires that go to the battery backwards

I found that on ebay but i'm not sure it's plug and play, if you look at my kit once everything is hook up, there is no more place. Maybe i'll need to cut some wires.

the kit i posted and the kit you posted will both work they are plug and play no splicing needed i wish i had pics of mine layed out for you to show you, you unplug the conection from the ballast plug in the male end of the relay kit into the ballast the the male plug from the hid kit plugs into the female plug of the relay kit repeat on both sides and hook up postive and negitive wire to battery(if memory serves me correctlly) it sounds hard but its easy everything plugs into one place

Ok so if i understand correctly, the power will come from the relay instead of the hi/low box? Cuz there is only 2 male connector on the relay kit, no female connector, so the male connector that come from the hi/low box will remain unplug. Only a small wire that goes directly to each bulb will be plug. Does it sound good to you? By the way, thank you for the fast response, i appreciate it! I'll give it a try, and post the result later, have to wait for the relay to be delivered!

heres a pic goes between where the arrows are, plug the female conections on the ballast into the male conections on the relay kit plug the male conection on the hid wiring into the female conection on the relay kit hook the red wire on both the relay kit and the hid wiring to the + on the battery and hook the black wire on both to negetive on the battery

when you turn on your headlights it will send 12v's to the relay the relay will switch and send power straight from the battery to the hids you still use all that wire plus all the wiring on the relay kit and everything plugs in somewhere minus the wiring that pluged into you stock 9007 halagon bulb on your passenger side

Icon4 Update !

Hi!

I got my relay kit yesterday, DDM had a problem with their website, that's why it took so long to be delivered. So i tried it and, as you said, everything hook up somewhere, it's stupid-proof!!! But it did not solved the problem, at least not completly!

- First, at startup, nothing happen, all the other lights works normally but not the HID

- Once i switch the high on, they work great but i can't turn them off

- The lights are still on, even after removing the key from ignition, i had to unplug them manually!!!

I suspect the blue plug to be the problem, i read somewhere that the wires maybe misplaced, that the black one have to be in the middle. I didn't try to change their position cuz i don't want to break anything....

you are correct the your blue plug is wired for 9004 bulbs you need to change it for 9007 here this should help show you where the wire need to go

i dont know if it will solve the staying on problem but its a start

Icon9 Surprise!

It did not work, i'm still with the same problem, high only and can't turn them off.

Plus, i discovered a new problem when i put back my halogen bulb yesterday, only high on driver side. So today i installed the "burned" one (so i thought) on the passenger side and the driver side still won't light up !!! The blue plug was on the driver side yesterday when the wires were misplaced so i think i already broke something. I will have to take it to the dealer before trying it again. I'm seriously thinking at throwing that kit to the garbage and buy fake Xenon bulb instead. Lolll!!! And did i mentioned that i'm a canadian? So even if this kit finaly work some day, i expect to have the DRL problem....
