problems with HID's

Well I fixed the problem that everyone has with the lights flickering with a compsitor, but now that they don't flicker when the truck is running the ABS and brake light come on and get alot of static in the radio when I turn the lights on, I used a 4700uf 35v compasitor inline on the headlight harness. hooked halogens back up and all is fine,PLEASE HELP!!!
About ready to trash these things!

4700mf is correct, but you need it between the ballist and the hids

thats the way I have it.
got to looking in to it a little more and it only does it when the right side one is hooked up so apperently it's the ballast that is the problem. seems to have worse static in the radio the lower on the frequency scale it is.I'm quessing that the ABS and brake light was a fluke cause that's not an issue anymore.
Any more suggestions would be great.

wel got it all figured out. isolated the ballast from touching any metal and no more interference in the radio.
everything works great and light are outstanding in the projectors!
