Alright, I'm about as frustrated as a T-Rex trying to masturbate.
I've been running HIDs on all my vehicles for years now, so I'm no rookie in the department of install.
However, the Cobalt is bringing about some major issues handling HIDs.
I have a set of Optic7 Bi-Zenon 55W 6000k units with the wiring harness. The driver side fires every time. The passenger side is a whole nother story. When I turn on the headlights, the passenger side flicks on and then shuts off. I thought it was a bad ballast because the ballast would hum. Replaced the ballast, and while it doesn't hum the passenger side still flicks on and then shuts off. The grounds are good. I grounded the wiring harness to the bolt on the radiator support brace that connects to the frame. I bare metalled it as well.
Now here's the strangest part. If I turn the headlights back off, and let the car sit for a few minutes, the passenger light will fire when I turn the lights back on.
So, where's the delay in juice? What's causing the flick and what can I do to have the passenger side fire every time?
