Re: CQ HID flickering - any help?
It could be:
- low system voltage. Make sure that the battery is fully charged; lights come on right after cranking when the voltage is lowest - HID ballasts do not like that.
- bad bulb or ignitor. Unfortunately, no easy fix here. You can buy just the H7 xenon to check it out, but it is a gamble; with kit prices below $100 (in the 80's on eBay) I'd get a whole new one to experiment.
If you still have the original H7 bulb, temporarily reinstall to get through the inspection while you wait for parts. I assume that you wired it as per instructions, not cutting off the original connector.
