Unhappy Hid Xenon Kit 323i 1999

Hey all, ok so im very new at this so take it easy on me if i dont have all the lingo down buttt
today i installed 5D HID xenon lights in my 323i 1999 bmw, all is well, got them mounted and what not, butttt when i took my car for a spin to test them out the left one would go out then the right, so id have to turn my lights with the switch off then back on, the lights would return back to normal then 30 seconds later.. shut back off almost like a shortage? anybody ever have this problem? or know how to help me? would be muuuch appreciated!!!

sounds like your ballasts are fubar. i had the same thing but only with one hid, tried the bulb first but that wasn't it so changed ballast and problem is gone
