Hi All
So my driver side low beam HID headlight on my 2003 Escalade started to blink out of control last week. Almost like a strobe light. I figured it was the bulb so I got a new one and replaced the old one. Now with the new one in I still get the same blinking. I tinkered with the connections some thinking it might be a loose wire issue but that didnt help either. Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks
Matt

Sounds like more of a ballast issue. To make sure, take the ballast from the working side and switch it with the flickering side.

I kinda thought it might be the ballast. I just wanted to hear other say the same thing. Good idea for testing. I'll try that tonight.
Thanks

Tried it, worked perfect! Swapped the ballasts and the problem went with it. I guess I have to find myself a new ballast.
Thanks again!
