I have had a set of spencer 35w 6k hid's now for about 3 years and they have worked flawless. I noticed the other day it was starting to rain so I flipped on my headlights and no right headlight. Left is on and no problem. Pop the hood every thing is plugged in fine, no exposed wires, etc. That night about 9pm I go out to check and start the car and the both lights pop on. Turn them on/off several times. Everythings on. Come to the conclusion they only work at night, right headlight out during the day. Any ideas? Appreciate any help.

Sometimes aftermarket HID's just do that. You flip em on and 1 works and the other doesn't, turn it off and then back on and they both come on. Its just one of the pain in the ass things about HID that you can't do anything about, or not that I've found that is.

i have this issue occasionally with my drivers side ddm hid. I wouldn't worry too much about it unless it becomes frequent. you might have a warranty.

HID's commonly fail intermittently. Swap the bulbs left to right and drive. If/when the problem recurs, you'll know whether its the bulb or ballast.
