Fitted a HID kit


Recommended Posts

Spent a while today fitting a HID kit.

It's a 35w 6000k for £25 off eBay .

 

From this

Gonna have to change the side lights/fogs now as they look way too yellow in comparison.

 

 

Strangely, fitting the kit has added to a previous gremlin.

If I beep the horn, the speedo needle jumps to 80 then back to whatever speed I'm doing (even if stopped). Since fitting the HIDs this now also happens when first turning the lights on.

Any ideas?

Sounds like you have a short or bad earth, take the fuse out for the horn and see if it still does it, for some reason with the horn fuse out the dash lights are on full everytime you turn the lights on regardless if you dimmed them before, you may have an issue on the relay board behind the fuse board in the footwell.

Buy yourself another HID kit :thumbup1:, then you'll know for sure they'll match and will actually light up the road.

 

And move your sidelights to the indicator units.

Is this the kit from eBay... About £28?

 

Just I got this sitting waiting to be fitted, looks like a decent kit.

 

How difficult to fit was it?

 

there just plug and play mate...hardest part is finding a decent place for the ballast units and i wished they gave longer leads to solve this problem.well worth the money though and ive never had a problem with mine

As said above, plug and play.

The leads are just slightly too short to fit the ballasts in the space under the fascia panel which is a shame.

How much do you need for your ectentions for the hids phutumsch cas i now have a set of hids on order and would like to fit the ballast bits out the way.please.

 

Love to help but I might need them one day and anyway I would have to charge a tenner delivered for the pair, best getting your own from a UK seller for a touch more like this, if you need them quickish.

Ok, when horn fuse is pulled it still does the needle jump when switching on the lights. but not when pressing the horn.

The dash lights are undimmable even with all fuses in.

Ok, you may have an issue with the TCU ( time control unit) its in the footwell near the fuse board, it controls the light dimming, intermittent wipers etc, a common fault is a burnt track or dry joint on the board, its an opaque colored box behind the plastic panel.

 

Drivers side as this is a pic for a LHD
