HID kits and BOW eliminators?
 
hey guys anyone know if this will work on the jeeps?
http://www.carhidkits.com/xenon-hid-...plugs-201.html

i know everyone would most probably recommend to use the relay harness when installing hids, but back when i had the charger i bought a HID kit which i was able to install without any relay harness.. and i got rid of the ficker by installing the above part.

so anyone try them? got a set lying around which i can use.. but i saw that the wiring is not like that of the charger i.e. their is a connector connecting the headlamp to the cars wirinig harness so i'm not sure how that would effect things.

Why would you spend 54 bucks on a part when you could spend 10-20 bucks on relays that we KNOW work??

the link was just an example.. i got the part with a previous hid kit i bought a while ago for my charger (got it for 15$) the fogs dont need this part so i ended up with some spares.

about the Harness, i know it works... but i just dont like attaching or linking anything to the battery directly, call it a pet peeve if you want but i just can't do it lol. on the Charger it was so easy, just conect the part in between the balast and factory connector and that was it, no routing of wires or connecting relays to the battery!

open the fuse box closest to the front of the jeep. there is a lug sticking up in there that is battery power. you can hook your feed to that. dont need to connect straight to battery/

Thanks for the tip robpp, guess i'll just buy the kit with the harness.. and will try out the BOW eleminator first.. if that doesnt work out will see if i can force my self to do the harness :p..

if not then someone is gonna get a great deal on a set of hid's lol

On a related question - I just got an HID kit, but didn't buy a relay.

Could someone recommend a specific relay they know works, and tell me what the purpose of one is? I was under the impression we were tapping into the battery directly for power and using the constant wire for exisiting headlights for the signal (could be wrong).


Please, educate me.

Re: HID kits and BOW eliminators?
 
thats exactly right. im no expert but the idea is to run the power for the hids from the battery rather than the factory wiring to avoid voltage problems.

get a harness specific for the lights you are replacing.

if a WK 9006 low beams then get a relay harness from the HID vendor for that type of bulb. this way there is NO splicing.


and just to aggravate TYRANT some more :rolleyes: the GOOD vendors will recommend one relay harness for each side.............
