Bixenon HID Problems - help!!
I'm new to this forum but have seen that many of you may be able to help me solve a couple problems regarding the installation of my HID headlights.
Attached you'll find a picture of my OEM headlight with proper beam pattern on the right, and on the left you'll see my installed 5000k Notto SE xenon hid bulb. I ordered and received the proper size (H13) but the beam pattern is highly disturbed, can anybody help? I thought I would just be able to remove the OEM bulb and duplicate its pattern with the new hid bulb, but I guess not.
Another issue I'm having deals with the electrical aspect. As mentioned earlier, the bulbs are bixenon. I thought I had followed all wiring installation correctly, but the first two times I switch from high beam to low, the bulbs (for about half a second) turn off, then the low beams turn on. After this, once I go from high beam to low again, the low beams never turn on. At this point, even my driving lights (which only work when low beams are on) turn off, indicating something is happening to the entire electrical system. If I turn off my lights entirely for a while, or turn my Compass off/on, the low beams come back on and the same pattern continues when I go from high beam to low beam. Could this be some type of fuse or something?
Any help would be greatly appreciated - thanks!
