    Best mod for a pre GMT-900, lol. I used relays on my Blazer, when I did it, though... I like my overkill, lol.

    Ok. So after contacting some GM Electrical engineer/designers and going over wiring diagrams and other various options. We came up with a formula that seemed to work on diagnosing AND fixing the problem. The dubbed it with the acronym KISS (which they explained was KEEP IT SIMPLE STUPID)

    It was the fuse under the hood. :loser: When I was dinking with this at first I saw 2 blue (15 amp) and 1 yellow (25 amp) I glanced at the panel schedule and for what ever fWONkin reason checked the 2 blue and NOT the yellow. (in reality it should be all 15 amp in that run) but, I digress. I now recall way back when, when I first hooked these HID ballasts up one was fWONked and I shorted out the fuse grabbed a 25 amp (what I had on hand) and ran with it.

    STILL had I READ and not glanced I would have seen this and NOT be a fucktard. :loser:

    NEEDLESS to say I'm DONE with this company and will be ordering some digital ballasts off of Amazon. 2 year warranty AND Amazon's mobsters backing me up. :gunguy:

    "Guaranteed for life" sounds nice 'til you start rippin them out and spending $ to ship them back. :fume: I never did business with theses people and new to the HID game and got sold a pig in a poke for a SHIT TON more then the $30 a pair EVERYONE seems to cary now. :fume:

    Thanks for the help guys. You can now say you DIRECTLY donated to a mentally challenged person. :rollin:
