I just recently learned about hids and was woundering how they hook up to the tb and what is so special bout them?
thanks that help me i just didnt understand where that one wire was coming from. and i should be coming to the meet.from reading your first post it sounds like you are confused on the instilation. the system is made up of a relay harenss to get power from the battery; balists to power the bulbs and thebulbs. the relay harness conects to the battery and has a plug to connect to the factory light harness off your truck to recieve the signal to power on the lights. the relay harness (that is attached to your battery) is then pluged into the ballists. (one for each side). the bulb is then connected to the ballists where it get's it power. it sounds kind of complicated but it is really not that hard. in the spring we are going to have a big meet down here in ATL and if you can make it out there are a lot of us that have installed HID's on our own trucks and would be glad to help you install them:thumbsup:
ok that sounds good and yeah early may sounds good and its on the weekend right?but im looking foward to it a lot!well we don't have many details yet; but basically it will be late april/early may and somewhere here in atlanta; on jan 24 we are having a mini meet to plan our big atl meet so there will be a lot more info then but if you want to suggest anything; dates or anything then fell free all imput is appreciated
Kevin; the DRL's can mess up the HID's some a lot of members here do a DRL killer mod using a product made by member tblazed; this disables the DRL's while keeping the auto-on headlights but you loose perimeter lighting. The vendor on here 3bspec.com just put out a DRL module that is plug and play betweet the relay harness and the ballists that always powers the HID's at 100%; (unlike the DRL's that are only on at 70%); i got this kit for christmas and am looking forward to installing it; john (jsprewell) already has them on his envoy and he said this DRL module workes greatI have about decided to take the plunge into HID, I was going to just get some bulbs, but think I want to go HID.. and by installing them myself, I will know what to do should something go wrong.. I am thinking about waiting til the meet to install them so I can have some of you watch me and tell me if I f*** up, haha..
I have a question, Ive heard some say they mess up with DRL still activated and some say that they dont.. I want to keep my DRL.. Does the DRL mod also not let the headlights come on automatically when it gets dark enough? If the headlights will still come on automatically with the DRL mod then I might do it..
Which ones did some of you get? Ordered from a website or ebay?
well with yours being an LS you might not have that option; but it is i guess an option selectable with the DIC (on my truck atleast) but it keeps the headlights and reverse lights lit for like 30 sec (i think) at night when you press the key fob to light in front and in back of the truck; perimeter lightsKevin, thanks for the info.. What do u mean by perimter lighting? I am ok with losing the DRL, but I do not want to lose the auto-on lights at all, that is one of the coolest things I like about my TB, haha..
