Hey guys, I have a '12 supercrew. Almost 2 years ago, I installed a set of 35w vvme 6000k hi/lo HID's and they worked great until the spring. I noticed one day that my passenger side light was not firing consistently, and changed the ballast, after noticing some water got into the connector of the ballast and probably fouled it.
Problem solved until a couple weeks ago, where my daytime running lights were beginning to flicker almost like police strobes, back and forth in random patterns. I was able to turn my light switch to just 'on' instead of the 'automatic' setting, and this solves the flicker problem, but I'm not going to run during the day all the time with all my lights turned on and be satisfied with that.
Has anyone had experience with an issue like this? What did you do to solve it? Someone in town said that I might have to add a certain harness at the dealership to solve an issue like this, but I'm sure there is a way to get the kit working properly. If there isn't a solution, I'll probably just buy a new kit, but any suggestions would be appreciated.
Side note: I recently installed my stereo gear - screen head unit with 5 channel amp with components and 5x7's. This adds a bit more load to the electrical system, but I'm pretty sure that's not really why the HID's started to flicker.
