Exclamation Weird headlight problem.

hi guys

I got a set of 55W HID few weeks ago and ocassationally my passenger side aren't on.

I thought it was the bad connector because when I am bumpy road my passenger side headlight was on and off.

But today both of my headlights aren't working after I got a coffee from Tim Hortons.

I turned off the engine (headlights are automatically off too) then when I start the car and both of headlights aren't working!!

I kept turning the headlight switch on/off/on/off then my driver side is on but not the passenger side.

I drove around 20 minutes and I tried to turn my lights off/on then both of them are working again!!

WTF is wrong with my headlights??

I have a similar problem. But I suspect it is because the battery is dieing and on cold start the engine takes more electricity to start up. But since you have a on/off switch I'm not sure that will be the problem, my headlights are always on can't turn them off.
