Common vehicle with HID issue

Below is a list of cars that have common problems when installing HID's. This list is NOT all cars that have problems. We are updating the list as we see patterns with certain makes and models.

***We can not guarantee these tips will work 100% but these fixes are what most customers have used and shared with us to solve some of these common problems when installing HID's on these vehicles.***
