I'm hoping it'll warm up enough to at least inspect the wiring and find out if it's obvious. I don't have it flickering which leads me to think that maybe the ballast is gone. From what I read broken wires will cause intermittent operation. I love this car, I really do but some days I also look at a Subaru and wonder if an ugly woman who is faithful might have been better after all . . . . "Mama said there'd be dark days!"

Honestly the best thing to do is to get a spare set of working lights and swap those in then rewire the set you took out with new silicone wiring.

Exactly what i did and havent had a problem since. Also swapped in G5-R projectors
