Hey

I just purchased my 2013 Optima 2 months ago and i love it. I installed Hid's and the were working fine in the beginning but then i started having problems both with the headlights and the foglights. then i installed relays on both and now the driver side headlight flickers in and out and sometimes goes out as well as the passenger side fog light. idk what else to do. someone help!

    George many Optima owners have issues with their aftermarket HIDs and 70-80% of those issues are caused by cheap quality components and lack of the correct relay & capacitor harnesses. Which kit did you buy and from where? That would be a start in trying to diagnose the issues you're having.

    You need capacitors. Talk to Jasper here on the boards. He upgraded his LX to HID's and he solved the exact problem you have.
