Just a point to add, i did my HID fog light at TLW too with my old set of ballast i removed from my old car. After installation, only one side lighted up and the other side flicker. Her worker then claimed that my ballast is faulty. As i am very sure my ballast wasn't faulty, i requested that the "faulty" unit be swap to the working side. Guess what, the "faulty" unit works and now the good one failed. Then i realised one thing, the cabling they use is just too thin to carry the current required to power the HIDs! They ended up adding 2 more cables each side (total 3 cables/side) so that both my HID can light up.

If anyone wanted to install HID there, make sure that use a thicker cable for connection. Think i have to re-run the cabling myself with better cables. Today one side of my HID failed to light up again. After switching off and on again, it came back... very dissappointed with the workmanship.

I think at the first place if the electric cable they are using thicker wires. Relay won't be necessary.

Hi, I do not have an answer to this but I remember that a car forum was stating that thicker cables could "solve" the problem as it deliver more electrical current to the ballast then to HID. Thickness was not stated there. Similiarly, by adding another relay which draw direct electric current from the car battery to the HID will help, this is also indirectly increasing the cable thickness just that not we use 2 cables to charge up a HID.

IMO, relay is not necssary for Elantra because it can be quite messy and may cause electrical hazard.

Maybe can ask them (Car workshop) if they can re-wiring the HID light using a thicker wire cables if available. Current cables in the car should be those electrical copper cables (standard) that we seen at home kind..
