HID Relay Harness

Hi there, I installed the HID kit to replace the LED today; however both side of headlights are flickering right now...(Xentec 35W). Did you guys install the relay harness with your HID conversion kit? Thanks!!

Check the grounding connection. Most HID kits are sensitive for poor connections especially the grounding wire from the ballast.

I'm thinking of installing HID kit too! Was it hard to install it?
Please keep us posted and send some photos if possible.

It was VERY VERY easy to install on C-HR, just plug and play. I checked with the seller, and C-HR doesn't require a relay harness for 35W HID kit. But I found some negative review for this kit and decided to order another from another brand. I will take some photo while installing the new one.

Easy. I bought these on Amazon Sept 18, 2017. Installed two days later.
"Innovited AC 55W HID Xenon Conversion Kit With "Slim" ballast - 9012 - 6000K - 2 Bulbs & 2 Ballasts"

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00Y0261D4..._f8FhAb51AQHFW

Installation was Plug and Play. 10 minutes max. Nice and bright! No flicker. I get the high beam flash rarely from oncoming traffic. There is no dead spots as I had when I tried the led version...

Did you use a relay harness for these?

By the way, can you please share the link where you got that kit. I found a few options on eBay and Amazon, but want to compare them to what you ordered.

I bought the Xentec and it was flickering. So I google the best HID conversion kit, most of the reviewers suggested Kensun HID. Now, mine Kensun is shipping from the US to Canada. I will write a review of the Kensun after I installed it.

Here is the link of Kensun: https://www.ebay.com/itm/171994097736
(I bought 5000K 9006/9012 35W for the headlights and 3000K H11 35W for the fog lights)
