HID don't work when car on (Seat Ibiza 2011 SE Copa

Post by LeonJames » Sat May 25, 2019 2:58 am

So, i bought a HID conversion kit that works when the battery is on but as soon as the car turns on they don't work. I've been told that it has something to do with the control box for the lights or something. I'm wondering if anyone has found a work around?

At the moment i'm just using them for my high beam which is still brighter than my old halogen ones.

hello,
You are having a problem with the old car , just before your new Arona will be delivered ?
Most of the Arona's are new, so I don't think many of us Arona drivers will know what you are talking about in this Arona forum.
My Arona has full led, so I can't even place HID, even if I wanted .
I think you can better buy a new HID kit, not the cheapest one, invest in Quality

Quality products comes with price to match. But when it considered with long term use it is a bargain.

A few years ago, I've worked a lot with HID systems on motorcycles.
The cheaper the bulb or ballast, the more problems and recalls of defective systems I've got.

I switched to LED... but that wasn't good enough yet.
Fans that were too big, heat dissipation that was poor, lifespan too short due to heat.
Nowday's even the cheaper versions of H7 or H4 LED bulbs (canbus version) are good.

Dump the HID, switch to LED

If only one side turns on from time to time or your lights work inconsistently, you probably have a power issue. You will need a wiring harness to power your HID kit directly from the car's battery. If you install the wiring harness and still experience intermittent firing, please check your wiring connections.

If one side sometimes doesn't turn on it could be caused by a bad bulb, HID ballast, LED driver or wiring. ... Swap the ignitors to opposing sides (not applicable for LED kits). If the problem is reversed, you might have a bad ignitor. This step will check if you have a bad ignitor.
