4 pin CFL turns off after 3 seconds...

Howdy-

I have a Nutone bathroom light/fan/nightlight combo and when I turn the pesky main light on, it turns itself off after 3 seconds or so. The other fixtures on that circuit work fine. Just the 4 pin/3 tube CFL turns itself off. It's practically brand new. Seems there are only 2 choices, the ballast and the bulb.

Does this sound familiar? Any thoughts? Thanks in advance-

Check all wiring connections, than lamp, than ballast.
