My guess would be bad bulbs. Put the stocks back in and see if they work.

yeah the stock ones are good when i put them back..its just the aftermarket ones

fyi this is what the seller on ebay is telling me is there any way to bypass this system

We have called the manufacturer and was informed that since 12000K and 10000K HID bulbs are working at a lower temperature so the voltage required is a little bit lower than regular 4300K, 6000K or 8000K HID bulbs, therefore, the HID ballast will shut it off for self-protection.

This will not happen to all vehicles, only like Lexus or Mazda might have this problem because they both use HID ballasts made by Denso
