Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee HID Kit Installation

My xenondepot extreme kit has been flawless after i resolved the shadowing on the passenger side, however i do not use DRLs and my lights are not on Auto anymore either, all manual. I figured DRLs were going to put stress on the lights by going on and off every time I put on the turn signals and since the "auto" light sensor is crap I don't want it turning on the lights at mid day or turning them on and off for no reason.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee HID Kit Installation

Lights have been great until today. Driver's side fog (xtreme hid) will not turn off. Lights set to off, jeep is off, only way to power it down is to pull fuse. Just washed jeep yesterday and boom, problem. Is it possible water got into wiring somewhere? Everything was plugged in tight when I first installed. Not running canbus fix on fogs but have been great for months, only running canbus fix on headlights. Colud the relay be freaking out? Is there a signal that tells it to turn on/off?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee HID Kit Installation

Sounds like it's the relay. THe weird thing is that the relays are completely sealed (encased in abs plastic).
Please send me a PM with your order info, and I will get a replacement sent out to you ASAP!

Steve, you sure are one dude that cares about the customer's satisfaction! Can you please call Dell and AT&T's customer service and teach them how it is done??

I called customer service and talked to john. Also seems one relay failed and is stuck on but I am going to pull the bumper cover off again and make sure it's the relay.

the signal to turn on off is the factory headlight plug. Mines does the same thing on my fog lights. Talked to customer service. Said to swap components around to see if it's the relay or what. Will report back with findings later this week.

I'm running the XD kit also and using them as DRLs in auto mode - I don't have any problems with them, and in fact have noticed that in daytime people getting ready to turn into my lane (ahead of me, going in the same direction) or crossing the street in front of me hesitate and yield to me when they see the HIDs as DRLs. I think it's due to the brightness of the HIDs fooling them into thinking I'm closer to their car than I actually am. Also, when running them in auto and DRL mode the HIDs simply stay on (at the same intensity) all the time, whether it's dark out or not - only difference with auto is when it gets dark enough for the system to activate the headlights, it simply prevents the HID on the side a turn signal is engaged from turning off. I also believe the stress put on the HIDs due to turning off/on with the turn signal when in DRL mode is very minimal.

The Xtreme HID kit. Great light output IMHO. And matches the color of the HID headlight
