Question A little problem of flickering/blinking Xenon lights (both at the same time)...

Hi all,

I was wondering if any of you have experienced or heard of my problem. When the temperature drops to 0c or so (it started happening last winter but resolved itself in the spring and summer), I occasionally get a split second where both my Xenon lights would blink out. It's not a loose connection, it doesn't do it when the car gets bumped, it happens even when I'm parked and standing still. Is there a central ballast for both lights? (since both blink at the same time) could it be the ballast is worn and old and doesn't have enough capacity? It's quite annoying, but I don't want to change out the whole Xenon lighting system.
