Flickering Xenon Headlight-aftermarket
I have a 2002 C-240 with factory bi-xenon headlights. I recently purchased an aftermarket upgrade headlight kit (complete assemblies, ballasts, and wiring) from Mercedes Benz Wheel. These are beautiful headlights, but after about 2 weeks the driver's side xenon now flickers, flashes, and then goes out after about 1 1/2 minutes. I can restart the engine and the scenario repeats itself each time. I have taken it back to the shop that installed the kit and they checked the bulb connector and it seems to be O.K. What is causing this?
