3.5 RL: 2000 Acura 3.5RL HID both low beams flicker briefly

Customer Question

2000 Acura 3.5RL HID both low beams flicker briefly when turned on, but do not fully illuminate. Relays under hood check out OK. I suspect the diode under the left kick panel, but I cannot locate it to test it. Your thoughts?

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
The most common cause for the type of problem you are describing is usually caused by a failing High Intensity Discharge (HID) Igniter. See the factory test steps in the link below as well as the wiring diagram for reference. Copy and paste the links to your browser to open and view them.
