your fogs dont need to have hids in them, if anything theyd blind me like everyone else with hid fogs.

aside from that, how do you know they work?

i aimed the fog lights to hit ground, and ground only.

i plugged the ballast/bulb into my headlight and it works...

update* i got it to work... but it flickers sometimes when i turn it on.. sometimes it'll go on fine, but sometimes it'll flicker and one of em will be off...
i assume im not drawing enough power to the hid??

need help!

You need a wiring harness to get power directly from the battery. Sounds like your HID's aren't getting the necessary voltage to power on.

sounds like a power issue. You can try adding an inline capacitor or use a relay harness to draw power directly from the battery.

If it's flickering than you will need a relay than. At least you can try that.
