Newbie!!! Aftermarket HIDs!!! Need Help!!
 
OK, this is my first Jeep. I just installed aftermarket HIDs and after a while they turned off. First the left one was turning off and now both of them. What gives??? Are there any software issues I'm not aware of???

I don't know. I just took the car to an aftermarket shop. I have no idea what they used. What should I ask them???

Did you put aftermarket HIDs in the factory halogen housings?

Yes!!! Also in the fog lights, but the fog lights aren't turning off.

Sometimes a relay isn't needed for the fogs but from what I know, they're a must on the WK and it sounds like you'll need them on the Wk2, too.

If you had a place put them in for you, take it back to the place and tell them to fix it. And yes, you will need a relay harness. I put a set in a few weeks ago and I actually need a second relay because the one light flickers a little.

Make sure that the HID kit they sold you is CANBUS compliant. Regular run of the mill kits will not work on a WK2.

Oh, I only ask because its illegal in most states in the US and its pretty inconsiderate to other drivers. But enjoy that lighting.
