really getting mad with xenon
hi guy, i have a jeep commander 2007 that is the the same of jeep grand cherokee and i have this terrible probhle.
i bought the xenon kit, i install it and the light was flickering so much so thanks to the forum i bought the relay harness but now one of the two light turn on 15 second after the other.
i already changed the bulb and the rest but to work fine i have to turn the car on, turn the position light on and afte 10-15 sec turn on the low beam light otherwise one doesnt wanna turn on....
i hope u can help because i really dont know what to do..
but the relay harness should be one for the pair of light or one each light?
thanks again...

Re: really getting mad with xenon
It should be one relay harness to 2 ligths i.e. Both bulbs of the low beam.
What is the amps of the fuse in the relay?
Are you using a 35w hid kit or a 55w hid kit?

Re: really getting mad with xenon
you should have two relays, one for each light. check all of your connections. you can also try swapping the ballasts with each other to see if you damaged one of them

Re: really getting mad with xenon
i already try to swap it and same problem so i guess is something linked with realy voltage.
My lamp are like this: one relay that run from battery to the left lamp and from the relay run to the right i can put one realty per light?
but the fuse it too strong for u? or the voltage of the realy'
thanks a lot

Re: really getting mad with xenon
It should go [battery]-(relay)<both lights.

Basically the power should go to the relay before spreading to the lights.

If they're wired how you say, that may be the cause for the delay.

Re: really getting mad with xenon
yes my configuration is like this: BATTERY-->FUSE 25A--> JUST ONE RELAY<ballast 1 & ballast 2

i cannot put 1 relay per light or yes?
It need just 10-15 sec and if i just switch the car off and i turn it on again maybe is also like the relay needs a little to accumulate energy.....i dont know how to figure it out..

Re: really getting mad with xenon
sorry guy if i llok like stupid but how many relay did u have on your hid???

Re: really getting mad with xenon
they sell the relays like you have which are not recommended and then they make individual relays for each light. you should have a set on those. if your relay goes, so do both of your lights.
