Default Weird Light Issue

I don't know whether this was caused by me washing the car or what....won't know till tonight and its not wet. But I recently installed the optiplux'es all taped and ran right (or well a friend did), fogs to stock, and halos to parking. But last night it seemed when I first started the car the lights went on/off about 2 times before finally staying on. What would cause this?

Which came on and off, the head lights?
Myabe you have a loose connector going to the head lights or poor connections to the fog?

If your headlamps were blinking on and off, you may have been seeing the circuit breaker overloading and resetting for some reason. (It'll reset itself as soon as it cools down in order to provide light if at all possible, to keep you from running into the ditch due to instant darkness while driving, etc., which is why you don't have headlamp _fuses_...)

Are your headlamps all in working order? You tied the Optilux main bulbs to the original foglamp wires, not the headlamps, right? Any other wiring modifications we might want to know about?

It was just when it first started up. haven't seen it since, gremlins i guess. Happened 2 times that night from just starting up. Optiplux'* are wired to original fog lamps, with halo to the parking light. No clue....i'll stay with the gremlin theory right now.
