Re: How to Ver2: make 2008 HID WK headlights plug and play on 05-07 WK's

Hey XENON DEPOT, new to JG, I have a 05 WK and I bought 2 sets of bixenon HID with Halo kits to go into the light. I am having a hellova time trying to get the high beam and low beam to coordinate. I wired the harness into the existing 9005/9006 harness and both the projectors turn on but when you put high beams on they open the cut-off so to make two high beam lights per headlamp. My question is... Is there a way to wire the lights so that I can have two projectors in each housing, one that works with low and daytime, and one that turns on only for high beam?

Followed the steps but no dice in the end, going out to grab some photos to look at and see what I did wrong.

Ok, here we go!

1. power & ground from the OEM projector to the pigtail harness.




2. stock harness wires plugged into pigtail harness.



3. stock harness plugged into stock wiring.



4. power for relay harness.



5. ground for relay harness.

Got it!

They should be whatever comes from the factory, bought them used off eBay so I don't know for sure if they are the OEM bulbs, but they are pure white in temp!

I began with the driver's side as I have read that it is a little trickier than passenger's side. Scott has helped me tremendously already but there is something I am still doing wrong. lol......
