ballasts don't like water, check to see if there is any moisture around them.

Before you jump to anymore conclusions, I would check to see if the fuse is in the fuseholder all the way. If it's not, it can cause the angel eyes to go out.

If all 4 went out there is something funky with your connections. Check the fuse, ground, power taps, and most importantly make sure you did not get the ballasts wet.

chances r, you got water inside your ballast since those are the mounted on the sides of the car where after washing the car, you could get water in there.

that is why i wrapp mine in several layers of electrical tape!!!!
