normally the only thing they provide resistors for are your bulb out indicators so you dont have an error message on your dash, i would have to see the harness set up to be positive that you do or dont need them but, based on the normal harnessing i have seen i dont think that would be causing an issue. and someone please correct me on that if im mistaken but like i said i would need either a diagram or a picture of the harnsess to be 100% positive

Ya getting a pic may be hard as its not pretty. It is just the basic relay with a fuse and connectors. Nothing fancy. Ya I just decided to buy them because of reading about hyperflashing and didn't know for sure if it would fix it or not. But I want these months ago before I even had issues lol.

I agree. The flickering would first off send me towards a ballast that was going out, especially as they were working fine up until the point where they stopped working properly.

A bad ground (I read this as loose) is possible, though I'd be more inclined to think ballasts.

Bear in mind that I'm speaking ONLY from the knowledge I have of electrical components, and NOT about HIDs. I have never played with HIDs per say, but have done lots of stuff that is electrical and lighting related.

Good luck and let us know how you make out

Ya I have done tons of electrical and wiring but more with messing around with LED's and wiring RV's.. When it comes to HID's and headlights.. I get iffy lol. Can wire a whole brake controller for a vehicle.. But headlights, espcially HID's.. get confusing. I will check the grounds and everything and then I will test the ballast and see where I can find one.

Im agreeing that it sounds more like a ballast but the grounds is something you can check readily and it doesnt cost anything and who doesnt like happy surprises

Just commented on your thread actually.. 3rd gens are H13 bulbs and have the split filaments. You posted at the end saying how H13's which share the low/ high need a harness.

Thanks for the catch. My friend had a 3rd gen but he had aftermarket headlights. Yes you need the harness because of the high and low function. Although now they sell a h13 HID bulb that has both high and low with no need of the harness was just looking at it lol.

its beautiful

The good part is its actually XENON low and HIGH, most kits are XENON low but halogen high.
