Napa Auto Parts and bought me "Street Glow" headlights for $35.00, they were nice with the bright blue/white HID look. They were hot though, about 100/50 watts I believe. After driving with them for some time, I noticed only on high beam the lights would flicker periodically, I figured they were too hot so I always left the high beam off after that. Then after a month, the normal beam would flicker. Note: Only the headlights would flicker, not the dash lights or anything else, I would drive for maybe 10-20 minutes and they would flicker randomly sometimes without end or sometimes a few times and then returning to normal. If I took my headlights off completely for a few minutes, they would not flicker again for another 5-20 minutes. Some nights it would not flicker at all. So finally I took them out and put the stock lights back in. I also put in brand new high temp pig tails cause the originals looked kinda burned. My father helped me with the wiring so everything is correct and as far as my alternator, battery, spark plugs, etc all of them are in tip top shape after checking and are fairly new. Yet now the stock lights are doing the same thing flickering in the same fashion as I described with the street glow lights. I don't know what could be the problem and I rather get a clue of what is wrong rather than pay money for shops to figure out what the problem is when I can simply pay for the repair. Any help is appreciated thank you. & Sorry for the length.I just wanted to be detailed. Oh and one more thing.I do have a 12 sub in my trunk and a kicker amp BUT.I doubt that could be the problem, it never caused problems with my lights before, my light problems have only gone on ever since I got those street glows, I even unplugged my amp to see if it would stop my stocks from flickering but no luck.
