: Driver HID turns on and off when cornering/braking hard

I have a strange issue, the HIDs in my car work fine 95% of the time. With spirited driving, however, the driver side HID will turn off and then come back on about 10 seconds later, then goes off 10 seconds later, then back on, then off, etc until it finally gives up and stops working until the lights are shut off for a little while. Before I go ripping apart my wiring and swapping bulbs around, do any of you guys have any idea what might be going on?

I had that happen to me. I replaced both bulbs and it went a way temporarily, then it started happening again. I ended up replacing both ballast. Every now and then I still have an issue if the lights come on automatically when it gets dark.

Had this issue also. Dealership replaced my entire head lamp assembly and its been good since. If you search, you may find some threads about this issue. Some claim re-routing the headlamp wire harness away from the spark plug wires will correct the issue.
