Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee HID Kit Installation

It's been determined that the shadowing effect is the result of the bulbs in the Xtreme kit not being indexed properly for the '14 GC, thus the return (or ground) wire ends up in the wrong place once installed. The fix is to grind or cut off the largest of the three tabs on the Xtreme bulb mount to match the size of the other two tabs which allows you to install the bulb with the return wire at the bottom. I have the same shadowing problem on mine; will be pulling the bumper cover off soon to fix it. The shadowing occurs on the driver's side also, but the light from the passenger side projects enough to the left to fill in the dark spot on the driver's side, making it unnoticeable at night. Since there's no light source to the right of the passenger side to fill in the shadow you notice it over there.

i changed the polarity, no flickering. they turn on no problem with DRL. just trying to fine tune now.. thanks guys
Yes I did find the issue and I posted it here:

HID kit for 2014 Cherokee Limited

I did not grind the driver's side for it is not as bad as the passenger side was, after this mod I was able to place the return wire on the correct spot to eliminate the huge shadow it was projecting.

Having a slight issue with my xenon depo hids, the relays make a REALLY loud buzzing noise. And am not sure why. They are all ran off their own relay. And I mean every ballast has it's own relay. They share a 8awg hot cable and all have separate grounds. What could cause this??

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee HID Kit Installation

I want to confirm.

So the foglights NEED a relay and cancellers?

If they HID yes, LEDs are straight swap.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee HID Kit Installation

Steve,

I want to try your harness kit in my setup. I have the TRS Mopar setup and having issues with it. I believe it's a wiring problem.... At first I thought it was a ground issue, but I don't know. Tired of dealing with it.


What do I need to buy? It seems the connections are standardized, so I'm going to keep using my TRS ballasts and bulbs because I don't want to remove the bumper to get access to them again.

Do I get the "Mopar HID Wire Harness"? I assume that comes with the CanBus fix, since it shows it in the picture?

Thanks

Hi,

Yes, the MOPAR HID kit relay harness will come with everything you need.

DO you mind me asking what sort of issues you are having?

Hmmm, I just talked to an individual that had this kit and same vehicle, '14 Limited.

Anyways he told me he discovered he received 2 bad ballasts and but his harness was fine. Then one of the relays blew several months later......

No no no, LOL. Apparently I misread what he wrote. He got 2 bad ballasts from a different vendor, but got a Mopar harness from TRS.
