Hey guys ok I have an 8000 k kit from xenondepot.com and they work get and look great. The problem is when I turn the lights off like to the daytime running lights position they strobe. LOL I look like a cop car. Is there any thing I can do? The daytime running lights just do not have enough power to turn them on any help would be great.

Yes, they strobe because the daytime running lights operate by sending low power to the lights in short pulses. This is a bad thing for HIDs. This will severly shorten the life of the bulbs. You need to modify your DRL set up. I can't think of the member who resolved this issue, but try a search in the electrical section.

XenonDepot has specifically indicated that the DRL should be disconnected for the kit to be installed correctly.

There is someone who has resolved the issue by connecting the DRL to the fog lights.
