make sure your connection into the ballast is good and proper (not plugged in wrong way). Also check the relay (if you used it)

no don't bypass the relay. It may be a bad ballast if you're sure everything is the right way. You may want to try it without the relay once to see if it's something with the relay and/or your wiring.

Even though you're sure it's plugged in correctly...reverse the polarity by turning the plug 180*'s and plug it back into the ballast and see what you get... I had the same issue with mine and that's what the problem was.

It will work sometimes even if it's plugged in backwards (mine did too). It works everytime the right way...lol I didn't notice the small notch on mine when I installed them at night time with poor lighting. I haven't had an issue since reversing them.

On the ballast there is a larger square tab on one side and a smaller angled tab on the opposite side. The "V" of the plug goes on the smaller angled tab on the ballast... Is this how yours is plugged in? I had mine on the side with the larger "square" tab and that's incorrect.
