After coming home last night, today i started my car and noticed that my hids wont turn on. I thought it was a fuse so i changed it and they still wont turn on.
Never had any problems before, i even checked all the connections, they were fine, i dont know what else could have been.
I would really appreciate it if anyone has any suggestions what to do.
Thanks

And you can't even take it back to the dealer because its an aftermarket hack. It is a aftermarket right?

connect the ballast/light straight to the battery to make sure they still work. Then narrow down the issue from there.

Troubleshooting electrical is not my fav. either,

But since you mentioned 'while driving' I would say its either a ground (road/truck vibration is causing a break in current, just because a connection looks good, doesn't mean that it is)

Do you have a continuity tester?

Like cottonseed mentioned - did you try isolating the ballast directly to power?

By the sounds of it you've gone over the wiring so, yes perhaps the ballast has an issue.

Just my thoughts...
