I had the same problems as most people with my HID's flashing, flickering, etc. All you need to do is buy a "load control module". It will plug inline with your HID harness and eliminate these problems. Any shop that sells HID's should have them in stock. I paid 17 bucks for mine, and there was no messing around with resistors or capacitors. It's money well spent, trust me.

to be honest with you i'm not 100 percent sure, i will probably be able to figure that out tomorrow. right now i'm only running one load control module, the HID's are powered through the harness that came in the kit. i have a second module that i'm going to put in so i can eliminate the HID harness altogether and then i will know. i have the lamp out light on as well and i had tried the second module and the lamp out indicator was still on so i took it out and ran through the HID harness again, but then i realized that both of my license plate lights were burnt out so that could have been the reason the lamp out indicator was on. i replaced the bulbs and i'm going to try again.

I'm having that problem, My low beams are flashing and my highs are work good.. So i'm guessing I need a load control module but can't find any..

matt the headlights are controlled by the computer and because the hids are only 35watts compared to the 55 of a halogn bulb, it see that there is not enough current and it shuts off the light and then cycles on and then off ect, therefore the flicker, there are a couple options, one you can run your power from tyhe parking lights, 2 you can by the resistors and make em yourself, i no when i had that truck the headlights were horrible, i tried every kind of bulb i could get , ended up leaving the blue ebay bulbs in it when i got rid of it, i had a set of 6 inch lights behind the grill, that solved my light issue . also hids wont work a daytime running lights, there is not enough current for them to light up, which is why many people wire them to the park lights.

if you are interested in a hid kit dont waste your money on a "brand name" kit, unlesss its from twiggy on dodgetalk, ddmtuning.com has great kits at unbeatable prices, i havent personally seem the h13's for the ram but my mazda hids are great and no issues.

i don't think wire the ballast on the parking light its a good things to do for truck equip with Day running light, cause the drl module cut the ground 9 times per seconds this so the light will receive 9 volts. On my corrola i need too ground the ballasts direct on the body too resolve my problems

I installed bi-xenon 55 watt headlights but the brights do even shoot out as far as the stock ones... the dims are brighter then stock

Do they need adjusting?

I got them to stop flashing/lamp out by using the resistor trick that was posted on here.

I just don't understand why the brights aren't even as good as the stock ones... Help please

I used 50watt load resistors on all mine. You can get them off Ebay for about $10 a pair shipped. i make my own harnesses

I bought the 55w Digital kit for my 07 Ram from Retro Solutions. Works great and no issues. The directions were a little fuzzy, but a quick lookup on their website fixed everything (I had wired it up wrong).
