hid problem help

im currently running 6000k 881 smarteye hid ballast and bulb kit for my fogs, my left bulb/ballast is being a problem.. im not quite too sure if its the bulb or the ballast, once i turn the lights on (when its completly NOT warmed up). they both go on (right and left side both) they slowly warm up and in the end when its all warmed the the left side bulb seems to turn off (right side is completly fine) i searched on the internet and stuff but just wanted to see if anyone experienced the same thing? thanks!

swap the ballast OR the bulbs with each other, then u can narrow down the problem to the bulbs or the ballast. remember swap one OR the OTHER, not both bulbs and ballasts.

It could be the bulb. To double check the system, switch the ballasts around to determine if it's the ballast or bulb.
