agree with bennett15 110%.......you need to run the relay harness
most guys that have this issue find that the relay harness solves all their issues
***for those that dont know, here is what the relay harness does...you will connect the relay harness to the drivers side headlight pigtail and to the battery + and -....the outputs on the relay harness will go directly to the HID ballasts themselves...you will not use the passenger side headlight pigtail at all, it will remain unplugged....what this will do is allow the headlight switch, which originally sent power to the lights themselves, to send a 12v signal to the relay you just installed...when the relay sees the 12v signal it will make the relay which will in turn allow the full battery + and - to activate the ballasts....this will do away with the having to turn them on/off/on to get the ballasts to fire up as they will not be getting the degraded current from the headlight switch but the full monte from the battery.
if problems still exist after installing the relay harness you can try increasing all of the headlight fuses controlling HID lights in the panel by 5amps...this is explained in a following post below
