Try unplugging the bulb wires from the ballast and re-conect wile the lights are on. Only discontinue the circuit meaning u only have to disconnect one of the wires from the ballast to the bulb. Most likely you gotta change the bulb. I recommend you buy a set of two cause lets say you have a 12000k bulb and you buy one to match it most likely will be the right temp but wont be an exact match.

Default Re: stock hid went purple

most likely the bulb. easiest way to check is to swap the bulbs. passenger to driver and driver to passenger. if the purple travels with the bulb, then its the bulb. if you have stock HIDs, the ballasts on these cars are near unbreakable. they never die.

and dont just replace one bulb. change them both at the same time.
