    Headlight Wiring Configuration Help !

    I have a full H.I.D. Kit and its rather easy to setup....however I have one problem... The wiring from the ignitor is....

    White-positive
    Black-negative

    Stock Harness is Dual Positive
    Red w/Green Stripe- ?
    Red w/Yellow Stripe- ?
    Black-negative

    I need to know which red positive wire powers the low beam, as I dont want to power the High Beam, and not be able to power the fogs.
    So....
    Red w/Green or Red w/Yellow for Low Beam ?

    UPDATE- HID INSTALLED....SEE PICS BELOW

    Get yourself a Chilton manual

    Anywho, according to it:

    RED/GREEN = High beam left headlight
    RED/YELLOW = Low beam left headlight

    RED/WHITE = Low beam right headlight
    RED/BLUE = High beam right headlight

    Of course, black is ground

    Are you using an HID kit on stock teg headlights? If you haven't researched it, be forwarned that the light won't difuse out of it properly. Of course, they will still work. I'm just saying. Getting a set of projectors is well worth the money because the output, and looks, are great!

    I don't have any pics up yet of my headlights after my HID install, but all I can say is it's 10x better then any lighting I've ever had on any of my tegs with whatever headlights I had installed, or bulbs I used. I'm def completely happy

    If you do have a set of projectors, then ignore everything I said, and have fun!

          I'm curious to see pics of your guys headlights output. Meaning if you pull up like 30 feet from a wall, or are on an open street, or driving down the road. I'de like to see directly what it looks like with HIDs not installed in a projector type light.

          Also, what kits did you guys use? Retro, custom, etc etc?

          And last, what K bulbs did you use?

          Just curious so I can compare the differences/similiarities with mine. I'm always open to improvement

          Oh, and I swear sometime soon I'll get around to taking pics of my HIDs in my projectors for reference too. The pics on my site are before the HID install so they aren't nearly as bright, of course, as to what the HIDs are

                Thanks.....Im loving this kit .....it only uses 8.5 amps at startup so their is no need to run relays.....hardest part is mounting the ballast and ignitor....after that....its simple....

                  Makin us guess...you suck!

                  It's difficult to tell from the pics, but if I look strictly at the pics of the color on the road...I'de guess 5200k.

                  But then again, some of the pics look like the 7000k.

                  So let me know then after some other poeple guess or something

                  I'll get pics of mine then sometime and you can try and guess mine, lol.
