So as it says, I have a problem EVERY TIME with my lights flickering after they are on for about 2-3 minutes. It usually starts with the drivers side.

I then I see it lately switch off to the passengers side.

It really sucks when you're at a light.... because then it really likes to get crazy. however... it will sometimes stop!

I thought that it may be loose, but with the two switching back and forth with the slight flickering of the light, I'm at a loss.

Any thoughts, fellas? :shrug:

Sounds like a connection is loose. I had to use a pair of pliers to get one to stay on tight and then wrapped electrical tape around it.

Dont know if the heat produced after the bulbs get warmed up after a few minutes might be causing the metal to expand and not make a good contact.

Are the ballasts in a dry area? The midday monsoons last week may have have gotten them wet.

If you want to stop by I can take a look at it.

Definitely sounds like a loose connection. If you are really concerned you can call their support line. I've found them VERY helpful. I used pliers for all my connections just to ensure.
