Hello guys!

I bought a set of HIDS off ebay they are Xentecs link here:
http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=160392646117

This for my fathers Ford Escape 2009 - The bulbs are H13 and its 6000K.

The problem is that they flicker while driving, and on idle they also flicker.
So I bought a H13 single beam HID relay wiring harness and it still flickers...

What am I missing? A capacitor? Or is the the bulbs that are just no good.

Any help would be appreciated thanks.

yes it is the drl's causing it to flicker. i just used a relay hooked up to 12v and it solved my problem or you can buy the plug and play drl harness from andjayik, hes got good equipment im using one of his HID kits for my fogs.

Will this problem happen with a 2007 Mercury Mariner. I don't have daytime running lights. Just auto lights. I just bought a set of HID's, I should get them by the weekend. Will I need the relay.

I might be late to the party, but I have the exact same kit and I had the same problems. I ended up getting "warning cancellors" from ebay, 2 for $25. They work perfectly!

I made an install guide back then too.

My DRL works too, but I use at least my running lights during the day so I never use DRL.
Do you have the link to them please thanks.
