angel eye not lighting up properly

Postby butch21 » Sun Dec 06, 2009 4:51 pm

one of the rings in my angel eyes isnt lighting up properly, the ballast blew and i replaced it today and one ring is working perfectly but the larger one barely lights up, any idea's on how to fix it or if it needs replacing?

I'd say you'll have to replace the ring bud. I had the same problem with them and tried different ballasts and eventunally just sent them back.
