Default Hid issues
I just got some used hids retrofitted into hella 4000's and they worked great for about a week then sometime in between one of the lights won't work... I don't think it's wiring issues since the other work fine, and I don't think it's an aux switch issue since only one is out not the set... Maybe a bad ballast or bulb? Any way to test either to see which is bad? Kinda sucks I just got these and now one doesn't work but on a lighter side my large outlaw raptor goodies should be on the way next week! Method nv's here I come!

swap a working bulb from one light to the other or take a ballast from working side and connect to the non working side. that will help u determine bulb or ballast
