hid help please

i hooked one kit up to make sure it worked....the bulb comes on for 1sec then goes off...so i waited...then tried again..same thing..thought maybe something was wrong with the bulb or ballast so i tried others and switching..same reaction..come on then go off...ballasts light up with a bright blue led... i thought maybe somethin was wrong with my headlight wiring or something so i tried it to a direct 12v source...battery...with car running...same thing..blub on then off after a quick second....all 4 ballasts and bulbs do the same exact thing....it took me 2 hours to get my car apart to put these in..headlights were a pain and the passenger fog light sucks ass.....and i realllllllly dont wanna have to do it twice....what am i doing wrong or is there hardware malfunction?

The realy should fix it, the problem is that the ballst aren't getting the requried current with you go to turn the car on. The reason for that is because when car battries are exposed to cold the power will dip, if you start the car and then turn on the lights u shouldn't have an issue. What year is your car?

If you go into your computer should be able to turn it off when the car starts
