Default Hid Headlight replacement....

Hello there I am new to this site and I think it's awesome to have a form here to chat and look and learn about different items relating to the PT Cruiser(s). I have a 2006 PT and I find that the headlight output is not that great so I wanted to upgrade to HID's. I bought a kit that is a "plug & play" kit and was successful in hooking them up and they worked with the car not running. But when I started the car the lights flashed 6 times and they turned off with not a gig after . I had to shut off the car and wait a few min before I can turn them back on again. After looking into it I found that in 2006 they changed the electrical system to a "cam-bus" system. So I got cam-bus ballasts and still nothing it was doing the same thing. Then I got a DRL harness hooked this up and still nothing. I have been talking to people that are very familiar to setting up HID's and they are stumped...and so am I.
So what I did after was to get a set of Silverstars. Before getting them to work I had to get the computer flashed to get the driver's headlight to work. (Thanks to reading several forums here to figure out how to fix this...THANKS!!)
I am sure that there are folks here that have HID's in their rides, and have ran into this problem. Can you please shed some light on this PLEASE!! Thank-you in advance and maby I can see clearly.....
