Ok, after much searching before and after my HID install I have came up with nothing. All the post just led to someone got the wrong product or parts and didn't know what they were doing. This is my fourth time installing a HID kit on a car so here is the question.

Everything is hooked up correctly as far as relay's and wiring. I have checked everything, changed out different parts one at a time, changed grounds. Literally everything. My ballast will not quit buzzing. Granted it is not a loud buzzing but any other car I have installed these on once the bulb heats up the buzzing stops. If it does any buzzing at all. The kit is from XenonDepot it is the xtreme HID kit and these are on the low beams. Any help I would greatly appreciate!

If there is a solution on here that someone posts a link for I apologize ahead of time but so far I haven't found anything and I hate double posting.

Thanks

Eric

triple check your grounds they are very sensitive and if they don't have the best contact they can make it buzz or not turn on at all . Make sure it clean bare metal or use a factory grounding bolt

Some info I've found.

Buzzing = arcing. Move the 23k volt side of the wires away from gound points (fenders, bumper support, etc). The connectors are not insulated enough and at startup the power will jump ship to the closest ground. You can see it happen in the dark with a buddy turning the lights on/off for you.

The wires coming out of the ballast connecting to the bulb that carry the high voltage to the bulb.

Can you explain why they were still buzzing before I mounted anything? When the ballast weren't even touching any metal? And why this is the first set of ballast that I have had consistant buzzing from?

Where did you mount your ballast at that you are not having that problem?

Any way we could get XenonDepot to chime in on the issue?
