HID Kit, Only one bulb lights up. Help

Hello, I just installed a VVME 55W Hid kit on my 2009 Grand Cherokee Laredo. I have a wiring relay harness installed and the drivers side lights up just fine and does not strobe.

The passenger side bulb does NOT light up at all... I also have one left over plug coming from the bulb's wiring - even though it appears that ALL connections are made with the relay harness.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Go back to halogens and don't blind anyone.

Can't offer any of the advice you're looking for, I don't put HID's in reflector housings.

The ebay kits are a hit and miss if that's what you purchased, the ballast's that come with them are crap. Also, here is a good read:http://www.danielsternlighting.com/t...nversions.html

VVME is the only kit I will get anymore. Ditto on the ground.

As long as they're adjusted properly I see no issue. It's the people who keep them aimed high that blind people.

OP I agree with swapping bulbs and testing to confirm it's not a bad bulb.

Holy run on sentence. Actually I run HIR 9012's and love them. I never said anything about HID's damaging anything. HID''s are awesome when used properly, but the hid kits Iv'e seen around here in WK's always glare and it's very annoying. To have them not glare, you have to aim them down and that would defeat the purpose of the "upgrade". Plus the light scatters everywhere in stock housing's. To each his own, but I do love to light up my light bar when the need arises though.

I never said adjust down. Properly adjusted headlights don't point into the eight lanes of traffic or through the guy in fronts car but most people with halogen headlights do so they can see. I'm doing this on my iPhone and punctuation is a lot more effort then it's worth on a forum.
