2014 OEM HID Conversion...Update

I switched from the OEM halogen headlights to the OEM SRT8 headlights last fall and have been working with Jeep_addicted to get the harness just right. He recently sent me this latest version, and it is looking really good. I can't say it's perfect just yet, as I do get an occasional bug that seems to come and go, he is working on that and should have an updated harness shortly. The bug is that sometimes the DRL's don't dim when the headlights are on, definitely nothing major and should be easily corrected. Here is a short video showing the Jeep starting, turning on the headlights, DRL's come on dim, directionals, hazards, headlights off, DRL's go bright, directionals, hazards. Just to point out, the DRL's appear to flicker when they are in the dim mode, they DO NOT flicker in person, only on camera. Also, I know the Jeep is dirty, we just had more snow the other day, so, more salt on the roads. Hopefully that's behind us for the year.

Re: 2014 OEM HID Conversion...Update

I'm curious, do the stock DRL "flicker" when viewed on camera too?

Looks great. Other than those minor issues, you did not lose any other functionality correct? I have a similar setup and am waiting for a harness for my 2014 GC limited (have a pair of OEM SRT8 lights waiting to be installed - itching bad...)

Nice work overall on the jeep.

Thanks. I didn't lose any functionality at all. In addition to what you can see in the video, the high beams work as well as flash to pass, corner marker come on with the parking lights or headlights. So, everything is working as it should. I do have the DRL's disabled in the settings in the head unit, as that circuit actually goes to the low beams, not the LED DRL's.

Where did you get the SRT Headlights?

I want to make it PERFECTLY CLEAR, the conversion harness on my Jeep has nothing to do with projeretrofits, The Lighting Firm, or joe wassman. I would appreciate it if you have any questions about that harness or supplier, please ask them in one of his threads or start your own.

My mistake. Wrong thread. I was bouncing between several that you were tagged in. Someone told me to check your threads.

This is where it was meant to be.

Harness for '14 halogen to '14 HID headlights
