On fitting HID H4 8000k with mini ballast on to 2008 Compass.
Both lights switch off and then on again within 1-2 sec intermittantly.
Have replaced the HID units complete and problem still occurs with new units.

Can anybody suggest the best place to investigate further?
Power for the unit is connected directly to the battery terminal.

will have to replace back to original bulbs as may cause confusion to other road users.
Thanks.

You will have to get load resistors to increase the power draw. Right nowthe computer is seeing less power going to the bulbs, and causes the computer to cut power to the bulb affected.

8000k - do you have any clue what you're doing.

Maybe you should read on of dozens of threads on the internet on HID. Those fixture won't handle the light beam unless they're projection designed and aimed properly.

Good its not working. You're going to kill someone or be killed. You well into the visible UV range and its nearly a bright Blinding Blue Light. 6000k is max but 5000k is pure white and optimal for lighting.

I am glad you're not around here and its not working.
