Unhappy Damn DDE Lightning Titanium ENHANCED Halos

I ordered these from modbargain.com and tried to install them this weekend. I did everything by the instructions they gave me, and the best result i had was have them flicker on then flicker off. Any suggestions? Here are the directions i had:http://www.bimmian.com/elements/page...G5D/G5D46A.pdf

i had the same problem...it was the yellow 5 amp fuse..it was cheap and it ended shorting..i bought a new one in a 5 pack for like 3 bucks and it worked! no more flickering and on and off randomly...
im pretty sure this was your problem as it was with 2 other fellow fanatics on this board...

let me know if this fixes it..if your fuse isnt broken, replace it anyways to see what happens because its just cheap material....
btw-i got the same dde's from mike..

My Ride: 99' 323i - sold :(
these directions are for the umnitza lights, right?
modbargains never included any directions... so i'm just 'wingin' it....

i'm sitting here about to install my halos, and the directions make it look intimidating...
is this the best set of instructions, and did that fuse fix the prob?
thanks

will
