Re: LED strip + headlights ?

Sooo did anyone manage to find a step-by-step tutorial to enable the LEDs ? I keep seeing different cars with LEDs here and it makes no sense that Jeep had to remove this feature because of a no-two-headlight law thing...meh

Re: LED strip + headlights ?

Hi,
I didnt install the cable yet. But I know now how to do it.
You need to open the wheel housing so you can reach the backside of the LED Lamp. There you can see than the connector. Some cars I heard have there like a cable rest left from the connector some cars have just an empty connection point in that plug. This is the point where you need to connect 12V to.
Than the light works how it should work. I did it ones on my car, but since I have the empty connection point in the plug, I wanna get a proper pin to make it a professional connection to the light.
Since that day I had no time to do that job. Ones I am done I will post pics as well. But it may take a while.

Well If you managed to get them to work, please do post a picture tutorial. The last thing I want is to misinterpret text and break something !

Re: LED strip + headlights ?

Hi everybody,

here is my tutorial about the LED strip lights!

I hope it helps every one!
I connected the strips to the parking lights 12V so the cables are short and it works how it should work. Head lights off, LED on full power. Head lights on LED dims down but still in operation!

Re: LED strip + headlights ?

I'm looking to get the assistance of projectoretrofits.com to build a plug and play harness to allow the headlight ribbons to function identical to the bumper LED strips on the 2014's.

If any one has any detailed pictures of the connector to the bumper LED strips that would be greatly appreciated. Maybe if your bumper is coming off you can snap some pics. They are specifically looking for the type of connector at the bumper LED strip and pictures of the wiring.

BTW these guys have successfully created a harness that allows the halogen to projector conversion for the 2014 guys that have the headlight ribbons fully working as well.
