Need help with Add on HID's

Hey guys, the other night i tried to install a pair of HID I got off of a website. After I had everything wired right I switched the lights on with the car off, They worked fine and looked great until I actually turned the car on, they both flickered for a few seconds then both shut completely off. I read on the site in the FAQ that sometimes this is caused by the automatic headlight function.

Do any of you have any experience with an Add on HID kit that could give me some help?

thanks
