I have now had my HID's installed for a few weeks now with good results. Well after the other nite I noticed one of my lights had went out. So today I checked everything and found it had blew the 10 amp fuse so I put a 20 amp fuse in to see if it worked and it blew it up within a matter of a few seconds. This kit I have is just plug and play so no new wirrring or routing any what so ever. I am wondering why now it keeps blowing that fuse for just that light. Any help would be appreciated.

I got a kit made by wizz I believe. Yea did have the 10 amp in there so I threw a 20 amp in there and it blew in a matter of seconds. Dont know if I need a bigger than a 20 say like a 25 like you did or what. I might even have a bad ground for some reason.

HA... thats funny... I just got fed up and pulled out my HID's (literally just finished boxing them back up) I installed last week b/c of the same problem... blowing the same 10amp fuse over and over... the drivers side to be specific. Tried a 20amp and BAM... same thing... so I didn't even bother to go any bigger w/ the fuses.

I think its the same kit (Wizz) so it seems like its the kit and not the truck IMO.

are you going off the stock wiring for power? or does that kit come with the relay and wiring to get power off the battery ? if that kit is trying to power up the ballast's through factory wiring... thats your problem. The ballast's need alot of power to create enough voltage for the hid's to work.

This kit was sold as a plug and play... I should've known better, but yeah... it uses all the factory wiring setups, no splices or running new wire. Just plug harness into ballast, plug ballast into HID bulb, put bulb in stock housing... good to go :pow:

yea, thats where i got mine, a litte more then ebay, but a nice complete kit.

the only problem i had at first was going over decent sized bumps the lights would cut out and come back on (lose connection) after checking my grounds and power wires twice found out it was the inline fuse the kit used. The inlinse fuse is basically to basic wire connectors with the fuse shoved in it. it works but the fuse blades are a little thin so they do not make a nice tight fit. quick trip to advanced auto for a new inline fuse holder and it was taken care of

This issues has been addressed with the manufacturer, and has been resolved. There was a bad batch of ballasts, if you are experiencing this problem with my kits please let me know and I will take care of it ASAP. New ballasts are in stock now to replace faulty one. I apologize for any inconvenience and I will personally resolve this issue if it arises in your kit.
