one of my HIDs is killing the engine
It recently started doing this. When I turn on my headlights, there's a 1 second period where the engine bogs down and sometime dies. (dashboard warning lights come on too).
My guess is it has to do with the ground since if I put the ballast box against something metal it works. So I tried to take the ground wire and screw it straight into a piece of metal, and it does the same thing.
It is grounded though, since the headlight turns on. It only does this with one of the balasts. Any ideas?
(the truck is a 99 f250 diesel 7.3L)
