2014 HID in fogs...

Still confused after reading the previous posts. Is the relay harness AND the CANBUS fix required to run HID's as fog lamps? I have factory Xenon headlights.

Re: 2014 HID in fogs...

Is anyone melting the lamp housings? I melted 2 sets on my 2012 with 35 watt ballasts. Luckily the 2011-2012 housings are very inexpensive.

Re: 2014 HID in fogs...

I just install Xenondepot's Xtreme 4300k Hid kit in my fogs today. The kit has the relay built into it's harness. You will need the canbus fix. Pay attention to the polarity when hooking up the canbus. Check it with a 12v needle tester. I didn't have any problems but the directions are lousy. It shows how to connect the plugs with pictures. I hate print and love pictures but these are not clear enough to me. It just needs to be bigger in size. Having the plugs labeled would be best. Good luck

Re: 2014 HID in fogs...

Did you run power straight to the battery, or the positive terminal under the hood?

I connected the relay 12+ to the red positive stud in the fuse box on the left side of the engine compartment. Some have answered that a relay is not needed. Xenondepot does sell a "Volt" Hid kit that does not have the relay built-in. I don't know why that is but must be related to current draw. The Xtreme kit must draw more current.

Re: 2014 HID in fogs...

I have the xenondepot kit as well for my 2014 overland and have not installed yet.........there are conflicting stories as to if we need to connect the harnesses to a hot lead or if we just use the factory wiring and use the included canbus pigtails. And the directions are HORRIBLE!!!!!
