I have two hyundai Kia vx500 Machines that the work lights will just sit and flicker and will not turn all the way on. If anybody has a solution to fix this I would gladly listen

Thank you,
Kyle

Sounds like a bad connection. I'd take out the bulbs and clean the contacts, try that. If that doesn't help they might just need to be replaced. Do not touch the blubs with your bare hands. The oils on your skin will cause the bulb to blow when you turn it on. Wipe off fingerprints with alcohol.

The bulbs are not halogen they'er fluorescent I tried the starters but didn't fix it i was thinking if it had a balist maybe not wouldn't even know were to start looking for that.

I didn't realize they were fluorescent. But you're right in thinking ballist maybe the problem if it has one or the starters. Bad starter will cause flickering. Did you check the pins in the bulb for corrorison? That green stuff.....

You might want to try some dielectric grease on the connections also...it helps.

Had the teck. in today and confirmed that the ballast in both machines are junk and kia won't sell just the ballast have to buy the light so I will have to figure something else out
