I'm pretty sure 2011 Limited Grand Cherokees (and 2012 and 2013) came standard with HID bi-xenon headlights.

Thanks for the reply! So if I have the HID headlights on the 2011 does this mean it will be really difficult to install the 2014 HID?

more so than if you had regular halogen headlights...

Re: 2014 GC lights in 2011?

For what ever reason the forum wont let me edit my OP... anyways, sorry for the delay on all of this, I ran into some issues with getting the daytime running lights (LED strip 100%) to stay on when the lights were in Auto and the sun was out... The solution I found was a fix, but i lost some functionality of the lights. The functionality i lost was the 60% dimming of the LED strip at night when the headlights are one. Instead of Dimming, the LED strip stays at 100%. frankly I dont care anymore after fighting with this so long. I was able to get a Wiring Diagram from pbalias which helped confirm that my Jeep is having some sort of issue when it came to the Daylight running lights... frankly I cannot explain it. long story short I used the Pink/yellow wire from the multi pin connector (the one that regulates headlight leveling and such) and wired it straight into Pin #6 on the 2014 headlights. I then just disconnected #3 pin all together, which disables the 60% LED at night feature, which is irrelevant since the LED's stay at 100% all the time while the vehicle is running. Hopefully this makes sense to you all. Just PM me for questions.

Also, pbalias is selling the connectors needed to build a FULL plug and play harness.

Also, I will build a duplicate cut and install harness set up like I have for the first person who comes up with 100$. send a PM if you're interested. im just looking to make up lost cost and I ordered 2 extra 16 pin plugs and tons of Pins when i built my harness.


here is the updated harness diagram I made. hope it helps. Oh, and i freaking love these new headlights. the small gap doesn't make a difference to me in the slightest.

Nice work, B. Looks good. Everything works like OEM factory? Still awaiting word from anyone on those 2011-2013 Compass headlights. I want to make sure the Compass lights are plug and play.

no they do not. I don't have the LEDs dim when the headlights on and I also don't have them turn off with the turn signal...didn't really see the point for now. If it seems to be a problem then I will add the relays

This is the same functionality I have with the above wire diagram. I also considered adding a relay for the 60% dim when I turned on the headlights, but decided I really didn't care. I like the way the look and the LED strip doesn't effect a persons ability to see the blinker or the headlight.

Re: 2014 GC lights in 2011?

yep totally agree, my same thoughts. Did you experience any flickering from your projectors when the car is running?

None at all. When you videotape it with a phone or something you'll see the flickering but to the naked eye it looks solid. Pretty happy with them.
