    I placed one sensor in passenger vent and other sensor in footwell. That is how they are marked (G150 and G192). Understood the OP did it different, but most of us corrected that in thread.

    Ed’s Reps Headlights - Passenger side HID sometimes won’t fire

    I had a lot of problems with ballasts, symptoms were similar to yours. I found the mitsushita ballast from an OEM vehicle where significantly more reliable. Finally went OEM LP lights, but it was part of my journey.
