Hey Guys,

I recently completed headlight retrofit. This is my first ever retrofit. Some pics here of final product. A tutorial is coming very soon. Converted headlights to Morimoto Mini h1 6.0 projectors, Apollo shroud and 5000k! Painted the housing black to reduce glare.


Regards


Btw is there any simple way of uploading images to this site besides providing http links everytime?

passenger side hid issue

Hey SuperchargedMR2,

I was wondering if you can kindly help me out with something. Today I tried to test the headlights on my car. So after installing all the wires, headlights including relay harness all grounded.
On the first turn on the passenger side flickered and turned off while drive side turned on as normal. Then when i turned off low beam and turned on headlights again both fired up. I tried on/off 5 times after that and all worked fine. All car systems work ok no issues. So after a few mins I retried the whole thing.

headlights on (passenger side doesn't work, headlight off and on again both work.

What could be the issue? I checked my wiring and it all looks good. I tested the passenger side separatlety on a battery and it fires up normal.

Thanks in advance!

is it an ebay kit? sounds like your hid kit needs additional power. you might need to install a harness for it

I have the morimoto H1 kit.

http://www.theretrofitsource.com/product_info.php?products_id=3959

It is "supposed" to be high end but I think otherwise. I already installed there fancy relay harness.

I think the cheap ebay one or genuine Philips/denso might be better lol
I have the same kit & it has been regarded as the best quality you can find. I'm no expert but I would check all your connections. If everything looks okay then I would call TRS as they are very helpful & willing to help & they are the experts. Odds are it was something not done quite right when installed but if it is a faulty part they will quickly get it fixed for you. :thumbsup: Don't think the worst right away as it's usually the easiest solution that is the answer. :D

That is true. Shouldn't draw conclusions yet. Btw what is the coldest temp your car to face or if your car was parked outside? I bought the kit from another seller (http://www.prolightz.com/) really nice guy and he told me test it again if still fails he will send me new ballast!
