Thumbs up Volt Kit - 6K Lows XenonDepot

Here is my synopsis of the whole process!

Product: XenonDepot 6K HID's Lows 9006...I love the slim ballasts, and they were a breeze to mount...put them under the black plastic piece underneath the headlight housing (see pics) and no zip ties/tape required. I also bought the fogs and will do a similar write-up!

Seller: Steve - Great communication, even helped me out through a brain fart!

Install time: For me cause I was an idiot - 1.5 hours; realistic time frame - 30 mins

Hardest part: ME BEING DUMB! Check, check and re-check you connections...all I have to say. Also make sure you have the proper ground, that is another common fix I rec'd while troubleshooting

Outcome: I LOVE THEM! I have been gawking at other peoples HIDs and now I finally have the driving pleasure. I do not know why I waited this long. I was on a budget and for the money you can't beat the Volt kit...ALTHOUGH I have heard amazing things about the extreme dig product Steve has

Here are some pics...

Re: Volt Kit - 6K Lows XenonDepot

Hey Brad,

It was nice speaking with you. I am glad that you have gotten everything resolved. As I told you on the phone, in 9 years I have never had a bulb arrive DOA so I was quite surprised when you told me that you had a dead bulb. Thank you for taking the time to look at everything again and I am happy to hear that you're pleased with your purchase and the outcome.

Don't beat yourself up for missing something. At least you took the time to diagnose and solve the problem. You wouldn't believe how many people don't do that and end up wasting time/money to send back a perfectly good product.

Thank you for the detailed pictures =)

Steve

Re: Volt Kit - 6K Lows XenonDepot

Im waiting for my LED bulbs in my fogs to go, then I plan on ordering the volt kit. I am doing this because with the WK fogs a relay is not needed, correct? I currently have the extreme 6500k in my lows from xenondepot.

Im perfectly happy with the lows right now, though for some odd reason when i first installed them id get the drivers side flickering so I added another ground, all summer worked fine no issues, then come fall, cold weather and i got the flickering from the same side again and even shutting off. I know I might be crazy for saying this, but it seemed to flicker and shut off at the same exact spots in the road on my way to work in the AM. Would work fine all the way from my house to the highway, then on the on ramp it would flicker a few times, then getting off the highway there was a certain bend in the road where the light shut off on me completely. I noticed it seemed to coincide with bumps I went over. I hooked one of the grounds directly to the battery, it did flicker a few times for a week or so but now i havent noticed it flicker in about a week maybe more. It always stumped me, because it seemed to happen over bumps, yet in my driveway I tried to make it flicker, taking the relay and ballast and and every connection and shaking them hard with nothing at all. YES, I am too lazy to actually switch parts around from side to side, thats my fault, but its a pain in the balls having to remove my air filter and other crap to get to it. Everything is so tight shoved in there. But im happy, for now....

Re: Volt Kit - 6K Lows XenonDepot

I am not going to see if the fogs do not need a realy...I plan on installing the fogs tonight and using the relays. From what I have read, it is a good way to go...and I have the relays so I might as well use them!

Re: Volt Kit - 6K Lows XenonDepot

Well yea, if you have them why not use them. im wondering if the relays are needed, since they cost extra with the Volt kit correct?

Re: Volt Kit - 6K Lows XenonDepot

They are extra $$$...from what I have read it is hit of miss with the WK's and fogs needing relays. I know Irf and Nate didn't need relays...both have 08+...so who knows maybe I will try one with and one without and see if there is any difference!

Re: Volt Kit - 6K Lows XenonDepot

Any update, do the fogs need a relay to work? I did some reading and it seems that it is always a good idea to have any cuircut that is on a switch to have a relay. So i'll prob just get the extreme kit for my fogs, just waiting for xenondepot to have a big end of year sale with 85% off all HID kits for jeepgarage members. Lol.

Re: Volt Kit - 6K Lows XenonDepot

It is hit or miss...the fogs are a lot easier so I would recommend using a relay. I used relays and they have fired up 20+ times with no flicker or issues...
