2014 JGC Overland HID Fogs Not Working

Hello guys, looking for some helpful direction. Today I tried installing an HID kit into my 2014 Grand Cherokee Overland fog lights. The fog light bulb is an H11 and I ordered a complete kit from a reputable online HID vendor. Upon install, the HID bulb would flicker once or twice and then nothing. I switched all components to check my work and still nothing. I tested the kit out on my other vehicles and they worked just fine. I wanted to ask around before I go buying a "Standalone Can Bus Harness" because I am not a fan of the "Relay Harnesses" that connect to the vehicle battery. I really hope the relay harness that requires battery hookup is not the only solution to making this install work on the JGC, only because the battery is under the passenger seat. Any input would help, thanks guys.

PS. Sticking to HID fogs for now, if it turns out I absolutely need a relay harness that requires battery hookup, I will look to LEDs.

The HID fogs I installed were the Xtreme Hid fogs from Xenondepot. They have the relay which I ran to the 12+ post in the fuse box under the hood. A canbus fix was also needed. Works perfectly.

Re: 2014 JGC Overland HID Fogs Not Working

What do you mean you're not a fan of the relay harness? It's the safest and most reliable way to run an aftermarket hid kit. You can burn up your factory wiring by just running a plug and play kit. The relay harness only uses the factory wiring as a trigger.

So are you running the relay harness AND the standalone canbus harness in the fog lights?
