HID probs

2012 2500 - Installed Alpha Rex pro gen 2 headlights, HID’S in lows and Morimoto 2 stroke in highs. Everything worked great for about 2 hours....shut truck off turned lights off. Started truck, the HIDS don’t work now. Everything else does, no dash lights or anything. Had a TPMS light pop up for about 2 sec. then went away. What could be wrong here?

Same I had too many issues. Went LED, cheaper and put out just as much light.

I would ask here https://www.ramforum.com/threads/any...137858/page-32 They are really knowledgeable on those lights. But I would tend to agree with the rest I have HIDs and am not happy with the in my projectors!! I may go with LED's but am waiting to see what comes out!!

Been running HID's since they first came out 10+ years ago. Many trials and tribulations. Been through lots of ballasts too between many ATV's, UTV, and vehicles. Since i bought my truck in 12' I've been through a few ballasts. I finally got some good ones that have lasted a few years now, but they still mess with my TPMS so I will loose connection with the rear tires while the lights are on.

Did you use canbus decoders or are they built into the ballast already?

wasn't impressed with led in the stock projectors, maybe other LED's are better, not sure. for anyone putting the led in the reflector housings, most of them are blinding to oncoming traffic.
