Each ballast requires its own power supply from thr battery (or distribution block) as they need the amperage to ignite the lamp. This is best achieved using a trigger circuit to control a relay. Any 20A relay from you local autoparts store will suffice.

you are not getting the right amount of power to the ballast. Start with the conections and go from there. Some times the conectors look flush but are not. Also it is a good idea to add a relay to help with this power loss.
