Wiring Help
I just received my Halo projector headlights from xenon depot, they look awesome. But I have some question about them and some wiring questions while I wait for the HID kit to come in the mail.

First, I would like to know if anybody knows if these two wires are for the halo rings or what?

Second, What is this connector for and how shall I use it?

Third, I have fog lights with halos on them as well and I would like to hook all the halos up to this switch: have wires for it

Should I just cut the end of the wires and use them individually? if so I need some help hooking up the wires, Do I need an auxilary fuse box for the switch?

Sorry for all the dumb questions just want to get it right before i start wiring shits.

Re: Wiring Help
third picture is where your current low beam will plug in.

picture two is the halo wires. try a 9 volt battry on them to d-check. same with the blk/wht ones. i would guess the black and white are the 3 dots.

so to help with where to plug those in you need to decide WHEN you want WHAT on.

like when do you want the halo rings on?
and when do you want those three dots on?

Re: Wiring Help
Thanks for the quick response, and I want the halos on when i hit one side of the switch and the three lights on when i hit another switch.

Re: Wiring Help
if you want to run them completely seperate from the other lights 2 of these is the easy way out. basically any relay harness with switch will work. there are many out there.

or you could piece it together if you know electricity some. but then you prolly not asking this questions :D

Re: Wiring Help
I understand the wiring now, but do i need anything else like a fuse or anything or can i just run the wires to the switch?

Re: Wiring Help
the link i posted shows you a relay harness that has a switch. it will allow you to hook up all the lights safely. it connects to the battery so you isolate this new circuit. it has an inline fuse to protect it. and it has the switch pre-wired you just need to pass the wires thru the firewall.

Re: Wiring Help
Ok, i found this from my fog lights, this was supposed to control both fog light halos and actual lights. This should be able to support the 3 sets of halos (6 halos) and 2 set of dots (6 dots)? it has a 30 amp fuse and a 12v/40A relay.

Also, the red and black that come off of the connection from the switch go straight to the batter correct?

And i am a little confused about where the orange and black wire from the relay go?

Sorry for being such a noob guys.

Re: Wiring Help
orange and black are coming from the fuse. they must also go to the battery. the fused power would br input to that relay.

then that oother small red andf black must power the lights for the switches.

i didnt realize it came witha all that wiring.

Re: Wiring Help
red and orange are power; instead of the battery directly open the first fuse box. with the negative BATTERY CABLE UNHOOKED. you could add the red and orange to the POST inside that fuse box. keeps all those little wires off the battery. then the 2 black ones go to the bolts on the fenders. whichever side is easier. extend them as needed.

well the red might end up INSIDE the cab. if thats the case, get a add-a-circuit that replaces one fuse with a place for 2 under the dash. for a ground inside the cab, there is one inside the side pocket of the dash; open the door. and pop offf the side piece of the dash. a 10mm bolt inside is a factory ground.

Re: Wiring Help
so you saying that I do not need to connect any wires to the Negative(-) terminal of the battery?

But if needed I could buy that accessory to hook the power inside the cab right near the fuse box?

Also, I can indeed put on wire to the Positive(+) terminal right?

Do you think the load will be too much for the wiring?

Re: Wiring Help
the orange needs power from the battery or from inside that first fuse box under the hood. there is a post inside of that fuse box that has FULL battery power it will just keep all the wires in one place and neat instead of all over the place.

for the red,you use that tap a fuse. go to wkjeeps and find a fuse that only has power when the battery is off (wont have the B+). a fuse under the dash, and use one of those fuse taps,

and yes, NO BLACK to the neg. they go to ground on the fender or elsewhere. like i told you above where an interior ground is.
