yes sir... the "cheap" ballasts have a BOAT LOAD of EMI, and they will jack with radios badly. If the ballast is 'bad' or on the way out that will happen as well. Try them one at a time and see if its one or both. Just don't unplug a bulb when lit... as me how I know :D

if its jsut one, try to get a replacement from the mfg.



If you need some that wont, let me know.

good luck,

Jess

in my personal experience, out of the various HID kits my friends have, the Retro Solutions kits are the only ones that have zero radio interference...

retro solutions is cheap chinese crap... forget their schit... if you want quality, with no issues ever with name brand parts with a warranty from a reputable name brand company BFXenon is the route to go

dude theyre ALL chinese, I dont give a crap where you bought your HID's from. :rolleyes:

retro solutions has a lifetime warranty, and like I said, was by far the highest quality set ive had experience with. The guy is real, hes not fly-by-night like 95% of the other HID places.

they are not all made in china? what are you smoking? Phillips, Omega, Sylvania, McCullochs are far from chinese made... retro solutions is cheap chinese garbage... im glad you had a good experience, but they are still units that are low quality... I know people who have yugos that are still running that doesnt mean it was the greatest car ever built... I like to invest in quality and so do most other people... BFXenon uses Phillips ballasts and McCullochs bulbs... and if so requested he can get Omega and Sylvania... brands that are worth the money... I like my truck I dont want it to burn to the ground
