This is really a strange problem we having. my only assumption is the post office just damaged it maybe with water or something.. its really odd. and frustrating!

if its not this im almost sure its because of the day time runners he has pr not enought power for them to get the kick they want for both to start?

ya it's all put together right. This kit is a plug and play as it gets u can't screw it up. As betray said the box is not as he shipped it, after looking at it closer u can see that the bottom was ripped and taped.

What are you going to do with the 9006 bulbs if you're going to go euro?

RU wired in parallel or in series? That would be my guess if one worked, then stopped working when another was added...

But then the other bulb in theory shouldn't be working either in that case...I don't know. Get a voltmeter and figure out how much juice is being supplied, and if there is a difference with 2.

What I just remembered from my Electric Circuits class (I just remembed it because I hated most of it and forgot it all right after the exam was done)...power will go the path of least resistance...SO, if in parallel, and the resistance of the 2 ballasts are different (which they shouldn't be), then power goes to ballasts with the lower resistance...

don't quote me on this...I got a C- in this course...and also not taking engineering anymore...
