  • Where to get HID ballast locally?

    So i've been having trouble with one of them and the other one took a dump too. Anyway, I need to get some new ballast and would like to get some locally. Anyone?

    What style connector is used on the ballast?

      Are these eBay ballasts?

        I would assume so.

        What company makes them and how long have you had them? Depending on whether or not you bought them on eBay, most manufacturers offer a warranty of at least 1-yr.

          I don't know. I have the box and it's some Japanese brand... Gech? I couldn't find anything about it. It's got one harness with an oval connector and two wires/connectors coming from the ballasts.

            No offense but it sounds like a knock-off brand.

            Is it possible for you to provide pics of the harness? Each company uses different connectors for some reason. :wtf:

              Not until I get off work.

              It does look identical (connector wise) to this.

                    I'll let you have the ones off my car since it's not running, they are the same. And you can buy me a set to replace them since you're probably running around with no lights now. They're also just eBay ballasts, not much time on them either.

                      Well, i found a guy locally who will sell me a brand new pair for $80 w/ 1 year warranty and i can get them tonight. If I hadn't heard back from him just a few minutes ago, i'd be taking you up on that Eric.

                          $80 doesn't seem too bad...

                              Yeah, would have sucked if you had lost the battle in court over some BS ticket and then gotten pulled over again for headlight issues...
