Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee HID Kit Installation

Alright, quick update. I installed my XD HID kits today. A couple of observations. For those that read any of my previous posts, you'll know I had polarity problems. So, yesterday my new canbus fixer arrived, and I went ahead and reversed the wires last night. Today I installed. Driver side worked fine(reverse polarity was already confirmed on that one), BUT the passenger side blew out like a party popper. Apparently, drivers side is reversed, passenger side is not. Right now I'm running one side without a canbus fixer, and it hasn't given me any problems YET. So, check polarity very carefully when installing in a '14 model. I don't run drl's, so we'll see if I have any flickering or code issues. I'll be the guinea pig for awhile. It worked fine wired straight to the ballast, or to the relay rather I guess you'd say. Ran the Jeep for about 15-20 minutes and never saw a flicker. Only annoying thing is the side with the capacitor takes about 3 seconds longer to discharge and shut off. Time will tell.

I checked both sides for polarity when I installed mine, if you had done a search you would have known this. Some of us have had issues with polarity. Hopefully you will get it all resolved now that you know which Side had what.

Also to reinforced this, Steve at xenondepot/kbcarstuff has worked with me to resolve my issue. Thanks again Steve. I will keep you posted. And you expect an order soon for my HID fogs or LED fogs.

Have you turned then on and off by the switch? Or anything like that to see if they reignite?

Get the HID fogs. The led's are worthless for actual function. Better for fashion. i guess if you live somewhere where you never experience fog then the cheaper led's would work.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee HID Kit Installation

I switched on and off several times with no issues when I installed, and drove about an hour out tonight with no issues so far.

Yes I been debating on this for I do not really use the fogs would mostly be cosmetics when i drive at night and want to turn them on,right just looks ugly cause of the yellow tinge compared to my HIDs white.

It always drive with the fogs on. I like bein able to see the stuff that's right infront on the truck and it seems to complete the beam, since I do a lot of driving where there aren't any street lights.

May be a dumb question. But any Of you with a '14 running xenon depo kits with the relays, did you use a different relay for every single ballast? How do you have your relays wired? Straight to the positive/negative jump points under the hood? Pictures too please?

The kit comes with a harness which has a separate connection for driver and passenger sides. So each ballast has a wire that runs to a separate relay and to the positive terminal and grounding points. Sorry I don't have a pic right now.
