  • High RPM idle with HID

    Noticing car is idling @ higher RPM when HIDs are turned on and left on. Jumps from 600RPM to almost 1K RPM and stays like that.

    Is this normal?

    No. What car? Do you have relay harness?

        sounds like that kit or installation is really draining the system, causing the alternator/engine to kick into higher RPM to compensate. Not normal, not really no

          I would remove whatever you've installed in case it damages something. I've never had idle jump and OE systems don't do that.

            That's pretty unheard of. What kit did you install? Try a relay harness, but you may have a defective kit.

                  Not normal at all , are your ballasts 35 watt or 45 watt ? I would definatly install a relay harness .
                  I can turn on 3 sets of 45 watt ballasts and 2 high powered light bars , and my idle doesn't increase at all
