A problem with my HID system. I just found out that the bulb that isnt turning on is white instead of regular transparent. What do you all think? What's the problem?
update: I am now running DDM Slimline 6000K with new projector headlights, which work much better than the old Hidynamic kit.. I'll post a link to the new vid later on.
clip of my installed HID's where the passenger side is messed up...they've since been fixed. Dealership claimed blown fuse -- $2 + whatever labor was.
**Video uploaded 2008, these are no longer installed on the dakota. Swapped for silverstar ultras.**
This video will show you several troubleshooting methods to do when you are having problems installing your HID's. This includes: Light's not going, lights turning on then turning off, and lights flickering.
2007 Toyota Prius HID Headlight failure
Failure of the HID headlights on my 2007 Prius Touring Edition. The headlights will turn off while driving. I have experienced the left light going out and right light going out at separate times as well as both lights going off at once. Turning the lights off and then on again, both lights will work again. I have logged a complaint online with the NHTSA.
In late December, the automaker began sending letters to 216,000 Prius owners offering to reimburse them for some or all of the costs of repairs to the headlight system.
This is a very common and documented problem with HID equipped Prius models:
Quote below from this article: http://articles.latimes.com/2010/feb/04/business/la-fi-toyota-prius5-2010feb05
"The most persistent problem involves headlights. Since 2001, Prius owners have lodged more than 1,300 complaints about exterior lights shutting off without warning, most frequently the headlights.
According to complaints, the high-intensity discharge (HID) headlights, anoption on the Prius, shut off without warning, sometimes in dangerous situations, leading to four crashes and at least one injury.
That compares with about 500 complaints of brake issues in the Prius for that period. Records show nearly 200 complaints linked to speed-control problems, mostly for unintended acceleration."
