Try using the search menu, I'm pretty sure someone has done a write up on installing and after market HID kit.

Mine does the same thing but only goes out when i turn the headlights off after the auto turns them on. Then when i try turning them back on i have to turn them on and off until the passenger one comes back on but i dont turn them off very often so it doesnt bother me

Get an OEM ballast from eBay or get some from theretrofitsource.com, with them you'll have guarantees and a return policy. Our OEM ballasts are Matsushita Gen III's, I know for sure the Gen IV's are interchangeable, not 100% sure about the Gen V's. You can always ask them, and if not maybe they still have a stock of Gen V's. I don't know of any connectors that plug into the ballast connector, I believe those are specific to the Matsushita ballast. If you are set on using aftermarket ballasts, you'll have to splice into that connector.

Here are the current Matsushita ballasts. A pair of guaranteed ballasts is less than $200 (less than half of the price you posted), or you can get one on eBay, just make sure you buy from a good seller.
