I installed the HID light kit with high/low beams from "Offroadobsessions" a while back. I love the light they put out but one of the lights don't want to come on when the temps get around freezing. I found this out at my hunting lease last week. Anyone experience this with you HID lights?
When I was doing research on HID lights on this forum someone suggested using dielectric grease on all the connections. I did not do this, should I have?

No one else has had this problem or am I the only fool that uses my Rhino in freezing weather?

I have the Rigid HIDs and have the same problem.... But I believe it is a faulty ballast... They are sending me a new one. It started while on my hunting trip also.... So we'll see when I get the new ballast.

HID problem fix?

I have the Rigid HIDs and have the same problem.... But I believe it is a faulty ballast... They are sending me a new one. It started while on my hunting trip also.... So we'll see when I get the new ballast.
Please let me know if replacing the ballast fixes the problem. I am going hunting again this weekend and we will see if the problem persists if it gets cold enough.

Definitely use dielectric grease on all connections.
I have never bought dielectric grease, if I ask for it at an autoparts house they will know what I am talking about?
