hey all, i have the halo projector headlights. i also have 6k xenons in them. lately, it seems my passenger side light is more yellowish than blue, and occaisionally dies, but works again after i flick the lights on and off. this a dead bulb or dead ballast?

i have no problem ordering new kits, it honestly wouldnt suprise me that their going out now because i havent installed the drl killer (its been laying around in my house), and running them at 7 volts is baaad for xenons.

I would think 7V is bad for ballasts, but I'm not an EE.

Try swapping the ballasts, that way if the problem moves.. it's the ballast, if not, it's the bulb. Pretty cheap to get a new kit... I wouldn't bother buying ballasts separately. Hit it DDM tuning. If it's the bulbs you can get them $10 all day on eBay although I don't trust their ballasts.

If you don't have the DRL killer yet, turn your knob to parking lights before you start the truck and they won't come on.

Did you ever figure this out? I had a similar problem with my 3 year old 4300k DDM kit. One bulb turned bright purple/reddish one day. The bulb slowly got dimmer and dimmer as the days went by. Ended up being the bulb after doing some troubleshooting. Waiting for the new bulbs to arrive hopefully this week.

on my tib that's exactly how it happened, one day the light became purple and one was white. ordered a new hid kit b/c the kit i had was over 5 years old and wasn't even digital.
