angel eye problem.

ok so i had my angel eyes working fine for about a month and then one day they dont come on (all four). i took my car to a shop (to get something else fixed) and they said they dont mess with angel eyes once already installed. he said its usually the ballasts tho. but i bought my eyes from a forum member who had them on his car before and they worked fine. he had them on for a few months i think.

please help im very confused. im thinking its something in the ecu box or something around the ground wire. im pretty sure nothing is loose.

thanks!

Check the fuse. Its doubtful that both ballasts go out at the same time.......

did you replace the fuse? even if it doesn't look like its blown it still might be. Check all wiring for any splits.........

I really think it's a fuse issue or power issue. Have you tried jiggling the fuse holder to see if the red wiring going into the holder is secure?

i disconnected my battery then took off the power part where the power for the car is grounded where i also have my angel eyes powered to and rehooked that up. i tired different fuses with no luck again.

this is the diy i used followed it exactly.
