    i recently bought a hid kit and install it on the car for 4 days now. the right side didnt work yesterday and today i check the hid light bulb or look for any loose wire but none. next i check the fuses under the dash and the fuse was blown so i replace it and it didnt work. i check all the fuses under the dash and in the engine. now im stuck, what shuld i look for next?

    the ballast probly shit itself
    check your wiring again... make sure you dont have any shorts then try swapping with the drivers side one
    if it works then your ballast is dead... if this ballast blows up too then your wiring is shit

    I had an issue with cheap ballasts... the cheap ones (Sub $100) die in about 10k miles. The name-brand ones last forever. It only took me three $50 ballasts to figure this out.
