Default HID trouble (ddm tuning)

Alright I keep blowing the 10A fuse....is it safe to put in a 20A fuse? or maybe a 15A?

if your blowing a fuse something is not right most likely a short somewhere... the ddm kit wont blow fuses by itself.. many of us have it installed with no issues.. it sucks but you are prolly going to have to check your wiring for correct wiring and solid connections

Definitely not DDM tuning. I installed my 35w no problem. While I haven't run them for more than a minute or two, the fuse would blow right away. GL

i just installed my 35w 6000k hid kit from ddm tuning, not a problem, fires up perfectly, buzzing from the ballast untill the bulbs are warm then prettymuch silent, no fuse's blown. i was wondering if i should post an up to date diy on the guage cluster led's and hid installs? any suggestions?

^Don't even mention HID DIY's. There's about 3 of them with pictures, and a bunch without just floating around. Do one of the gauge cluster for sure though!

You mean you're looking to change the entire housing the lights are in? My search feature doesn't work, but I doubt there would be. Very tough and LOTS of retrofitting to be done.
