I don't have the relay. I have the can bus setupI 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'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 tried that.... No dice. Thanks for the suggestion. I'll try anything.If you haven't done so already...I suggest swapping bulbs. Put the driver's side bulb into the passenger side and vice versa.

Did you end up getting a harness? I am almost at that point. I'm going to go out and check my fuse box to see what if I can find any dead fuses.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.
Have you tried calling the Retrofit Source for advice ? If not, ask for Andrew and mention this forum...he knows that I recommended his shop here. He's very knowledgeable/helpful: Contact The Retrofit Source Inc
I'm almost at that point. I'm gonna do a little more fiddling before I break down and call. I want to play with a voltage meter and try to decipher it on my own. I'm going to try wiping everything down with alcohol and see if that makes a difference. Thanks everyone for the advice. You've all given me a lot to think about.
They sent me a replacement ballast, the bad one was discarded... There is still an issue. TRS says that they don't recommend the relay for our vehicle. Like I said, they have had a few other calls with the same issue, and I am going to just have to trust that for now.Something isn't adding up here...
You tested the "bad" ballast and HID light on the drivers side and they worked. Now you have put the OEM bulb back in and that works. I take it you put the drvers side OEM bulb back in also? Does the passenger side bulb look dimmer then the drivers side? Now they are saying that cold weather may be to blame? So why does it work on the drivers side then? Have you tried putting the "good" drivers side ballast and HID light on the passenger side to see what happens?
So here is my $.02:
It is possible that the Integration Relay output for the passenger side may have an issue where it is not supplying enough current to keep the HID ballast happy (or the ballast is asking for too much current at start up). That would make sense seeing how the ballast works on the drivers side but not the passenger. A simple test would be to add a relay to the passenger side harness (cutting and splicing will be needed) and see if that solves it. The Integration Relay then would only have to trip a relay instead of a ballast. Many ballasts require a good amount of current during start up but then lower the amount when the lights are warmed up. (I don't care how many manufactures claim relays are not needed; it's a simple device that can save a lot of headaches later).
Right now I'm kind of wondering the same thing.
