Re: Hid/ Led kit 15-altitude

Antsjeep -- I here you pal. Honestly "knock on wood" hopefully that doesn't happen. It was indeed a clean install. Saw him set it up. Factory wiring is tucked away nicely. I spoke to the dealer ahead of time. They said as long as it's professionally installed they wouldn't have an issue. During the install he did test them out and the vehicle did not have an error code. So I'm pretty confident in this mans work. Honestly ant if that how you feel try the led kits. They are plug and play. You just might be happy with them

I just hate to be the negative guy, but I wanted people to know what I went through.

And I know the LEDs are plug and play but I'd rather not even chance it again. It's just not worth the risk.

I'll stick to toying with different halogen bulbs and seeing which give me the perfect balance between color and output. Right now my Sylvania's have an awesome output but not the color I'm looking for. So I just ordered a set of Nokya Artic White bulbs to see if they have the color and light output I want.

There is a guy over on another thread that is running the phillips diamond vision 5000k H11 halogens in the fogs and they look like a good match to the stock 4300k HIDs. Or the best match I have seen using a halogen anyway, he had a few pictures, was thinking of trying those

Not sure if you have thought about this or not, but have you tried getting an h9 bulb and cutting the tab on the connector to make it fit? I think putco (garbage?) makes a h9 that is supposed to be close to hid color. They are cheap so it may be worth a shot.

Yep I did a bunch of research about that mod and to be honest I don't feel comfortable with it. Each side would be pulling an extra 10 watts and to me that can't be good long term. I'm just gonna have to live with the H11's.

But thank you for your post. I appreciate the help! 👍

Hey guys , i am running H11 opt7 canbus ballast for low beam , with capacitors and relay harness . i just have one problem is sometimes my lights both or one of them won't turn on due to low voltage under 12v , i have to wait couple minutes and then turn them back on to get them to run , and after that they will work without any problem , what i can do to fix the ignite problem ? Tried many things like changing the ground and re installing the wires to make sure thry are in place but no luck :/

Re: Hid/ Led kit 15-altitude

It could be the bulbs themselves. Before I had hids installed I was going to install those, went with hids. Someone did tell me that some people have had issues with those bulbs. It could be the bulbs. Don't take my words for it. A lot of other people here know more about this stuff than I do. I have one question for you though. How much light do you get? Is there a substantial difference. How's the beam pattern?

They are not the bulbs i have searched alot and found out it's caused by low voltage and HIDs need at leadt 12 volts ,
And yes there is difference you can look at 2 first pics but it's hard to see :

And the company said to me that their bulb offers 3900-4200 lumens depending on the electrical system. They are not too bright but better than halogen and they are 6000k btw

Re: Hid/ Led kit 15-altitude

That's looks great. I wasn't sure if led bulbs would work well with our projectors. Heard a few people say the projectors wouldn't work well with them.
