HID Problem

**EDIT** I still get a lot of comments about this video, so go here to check out my current setup: http://www.Mustangcollective.com/showthread.php?t=35032 The lights usually come on if I turn them on before the car starts, but will not come on again once it's running.

2007 Toyota Prius HID Headlight failure
Failure of the HID headlights on my 2007 Prius Touring Edition. The headlights will turn off while driving. I have experienced the left light going out and right light going out at separate times as well as both lights going off at once. Turning the lights off and then on again, both lights will work again. I have logged a complaint online with the NHTSA. In late December, the automaker began sending letters to 216,000 Prius owners offering to reimburse them for some or all of the costs of repairs to the headlight system. This is a very common and documented problem with HID equipped Prius models: http://www.hybridcars.com/forums/replacing-headlight-bulb-t910.html Quote below from this article: http://articles.latimes.com/2010/feb/04/business/la-fi-toyota-prius5-2010fe b05 "The most persistent problem involves headlights. Since 2001, Prius owners have lodged more than 1,300 complaints about exterior lights shutting off without warning, most frequently the headlights. According to complaints, the high-intensity discharge (HID) headlights, anoption on the Prius, shut off without warning, sometimes in dangerous situations, leading to four crashes and at least one injury. That compares with about 500 complaints of brake issues in the Prius for that period. Records show nearly 200 complaints linked to speed-control problems, mostly for unintended acceleration."





HID problems
This video is for Steve(you know who you are) to show the problem im having with the HID kit.Anyone else that can help,please leave a comment.The lights work great as long as they are turned on first before starting the engine.Or if you put the headlights in Auto they work because the lights come on as soon as you turn the key before starting.Only problem is,when your in the Auto mode in the daytime and it gets dark,they may or may not come on.UPDATE.......I no longer own this car.Traded for a 2014 GT/CS Mustang on 6-1-13!!!
