HIDS STOPPED WORKING?! need help!

yesterday my hid headlights were working just fine, today they didnt work, i have no clue what the deal is, i dont think its a fuse, maybe just crappy hids, i got them from ddm tuning, any advice you may have to solve this problem is greatly appreciated, headlights are important!

Very, haha. Did you keep your old stock bulbs? You could just unplug the HIDS for now and plug in some old bulbs. I have extras, but I'm in CA, you will probly need headlights before then, lol.

Have you checked all connections? Have you actually checked the headlight fuse? Are they both out or just one side?

you're going to need a relay kit for those. hids are so much more reliable with the power coming from the battery.
