The resistance in the bulbs is too much for the ballasts to overcome. What brand of bulbs do you have? I had this issue with TheRetrofitSolutions bulbs, and older factory ballasts. When I swapped in a set of newer ballasts that I had for spares, the problem went away. But the old ballasts had no issues with the factory OEM bulbs (I forget the brand). So, either replace your ballasts, or go with factory bulbs.
