    HIDs

    I got h11b HIDs for my car and installed them with no problems. When I turned my key on without starting the car they came on but as soon as I turned the motor on they cut off. Does anyone know why?

    Welcome to the Optima Forums.

    Congrats on picking up your 2013 Optima LX.

    Which HID kit is it? I also replied to your post in the other thread.

    The Optima has a very finicky electrical system, and not all HIDs are the same.

    Some of the cheaper HID kits from eBay or Amazon will not work properly on the Optima.
