    It's not that difficult. We'll talk you through it.

    I'm a little frustrated with my Morimoto HID kit right now. Everything worked fine for a week or two, and now the passenger side won't turn on. I've tested all of the components from the passenger side on the working driver side and all of the pieces of the kit are functional.... Just not when attached to the passenger side. Any thoughts?

    Like I said, everything worked fine for a while, and then abruptly stopped. Could this be a fuse issue?

    I wonder if it is a fuse as I have the same issue. Passenger side doesn't work when plugged in directly. I never tried to fix as I upgraded to the HIDs and use a relay which gets it's auto signal from the drivers side plug.

    I am curious about his though.

    The easy fix is to use the relay and you only need the divers plug to get the signal from and it will work perfectly I'm auto mode with no flickering even is cold temps.

    If you haven't done so already...I suggest swapping bulbs. Put the driver's side bulb into the passenger side and vice versa. These bulbs are very sensitive to human finger/hand contact and will burn out in just a couple weeks if by chance they came into contact with some human DNA !

    I tried that.... No dice. Thanks for the suggestion. I'll try anything.

    If I can't figure it out I may just get the relay and try it. I just thought I'd pose the question and see if anyone had any other thoughts.

    I'm still curious too as I had and still have the same issue.

    Does anyone know if it's a fuse issue? I know for sure it's not a bulb issue on mine.
