Xentec HID Kit Flickering

4447 Views 16 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  SilverAthlon
Hello guys!

I bought a set of HIDS off ebay they are Xentecs link here:

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.

12.99 for a kit?? U probably need the drl harness which will get rid of the flickering.
Where can I find DRL harness?
If I disable the DRL maybe it should solve this issue?

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.
