Hi guys

I noticed last night that my left headlight was not working.

The previous owner had done a HID conversion which was working fine until last night.

I checked the fuse box in the engine bay and noticed that the 15A blue fuse for the left-hand headlight had blown.

I replaced the fuse with a new 15A one and went to turn on the headlights and had the same issue with only the right side working. The newly installed 15A fuse had also blown.

So I'm just wondering if it's more than likely the case that the HID ballast on the left side is causing the fuse to blow?

Any input would be great. Fro what I can tell the HID ballasts seem to be wired directly to the battery

Unplug the balast and see if it still blows, also if you end up looking for a short somewhere get a resetable fuse makes life allot easier

I would run a separate power feed to three HID setup. Some have huge current demands on initial startup.

Battery -> fuse -> wiring-> HID
