HID's flickering?????
I just got a set of DDM tuning HID's. 55w, 6000k bulbs, h7 bulbs. its not the first time iv hooked up HID's but for some reason these ones are flickering and would only stay on the i turn my lights on. If i have my running likes on or my lights switched to off the flicker like strobes. Any idea why this could be?

First off...what year car do you have? Did you get the battery wiring harness? The battery wiring harness would more than likely fix your problem. If you bought them from SharpHID Jon is a outstanding guy and can help explain some things for you.

you need to either get the battery harness or disable the DRL's

I have a SharpHID 35w 5000k HID kit on my 07 WRX and I experienced the same issue. Without the battery harness, I could only ever get one of my daytime running lights to turn on and stay on. The only way they'd both turn on and stay on (without the battery harness) was at night when I flipped the switch and turned all of my lights on. The only ways to solve the problem are to (1) disable the DRLs like Matt said or (2) buy and install a battery harness like Matt, Kirt, and I said :)
