HID Passenger side won't work?

I bought HID headlights a while back and they worked for a bit. Then out of nowhere the passenger side headlight (HID) would not come on when I started my car. I would have to flick the lights on and off numerous times for it to MAYBE come on. Once in a while they would both come on, but hardly. Either way, I figured I may need a relay kit. I tested the lights out again with the relay kit hooked to it and they both went on. So I went through the installation process, and when I turned them on, the passenger side won't work again. Has anyone else had this issue, or heard anything about it? I really like these lights, but have no idea how to fix them

Check the ground.. A bad ground may cause that issue.

It's grounded properly. I was wondering if it was the ballast as well.. but I wasn't sure since it comes on sometimes? And it went on when I tested them, but wouldn't go on once I installed them. Any idea on how I can check the ballast and see if it is the problem?

Ok, I'll check the ground again and make sure, I just really don't think thats the problem. I'll try swapping out the ballasts as well. I hope something works haha
