i installed my hids a week ago. i absolutly love them, however my passenger side will not turn on all the sudden. the bulb looks fine and i noticed that there is no buzz from the ballis. im going to call retro tomorrow but thought i would see what you guys think. if it matters i got the 55w digital 5000k kit

I'm going to say it even though I hope you have already checked all connections and your ground......I have noticed my high beams stick so I just keep them on low but otherwise freakin love em.....

Its possible something could of happened to the bulb. Nice thing with retro having a lifetime warranty though. Free bulbs :D

Just to verify, try switching the bulbs from one side to the other. That will tell you if it is a bulb or ballast issue.

35w should be plenty for the fogs. I am getting H3 mini for mine.

Yeah I got the 55w in the fogs also. If I were to re-do it, they would be 35w. I must say, I really agree w/ Crowz...I would like more height difference between high and low beams from Retro. Being lifted, I have to aim them low to avoid nonstop flashes, and the high beams don't seem to make a bit of difference, aside from just scattering light more???? little disappointed there...

Figured it might get worse on a truck with a lift kit. Its only slightly anoying when not lifted.

i have 55w headlights and fog lights, i dont get highbeamed much with the headlights only, but headlights and fogs, i get highbeamed a lot. If you live in the country get the 55w fogs.
