New hids's turning off once car is started

Recently fitted mr Jp hids. When I turn on the ignition both lights come on fine. When I go and start the car one of them (from either side) will go off. If I then turn the lights of then on again they're fine. Any ideas?

Probably a malfunctioning ballast I presume... Even though, it's not good for hid bulbs to be on before the car is started... The voltage spikes on startup are very bad for the bulbs...

therefore Auto-lights are a real hid killer... Just leave the light position off, start the car, turn your lights manually on.
