XENTEC Install Help
 
2 Attachment(s)
Hello All
I got the xentec HID kit from Tony I need some help installing it too many wires I am just doing the lows only. With one relay I looked at matt install zero help with what wire goes where. A good step by step would help.

Thanks

I had the same problem. I ordered a kit from Tony for my cousin and it took my 3 hours until I found out that I only needed one relay. Lol. You don't need those extras wires in the second picture so eliminate those.

The whole kit is designed so you can't put the wrong wire in... start at the factory harness and work your way to the bulb.

Lay it out on the ground and wire it up 'in your head'

Just don't get overwhelmed with all the wiring... it took me like 20 minutes on the phone to calm Omar down, LOL.

LOL I think we all had like 5 min of panic when we opened our HID box. LMFAO I didn't find instructions till I got to the box to do the fogs and that was the easy part. LOL

This is the appropriate grounding point on the drivers side. There is one just like this on the passeneger side right between the airbox and the coolant tank. These are the proper grounding points for HID relays.

Yes, seeing all the wires give me a heart attack. The second picture of the wires with the points on them got me scared glad I do not need them. The picture of the relay layout looks differ from the relay I got. I will get working on later this week. The guys who PM thanks if I get into problems I will be calling.

Thanks

Chris

are the ballasts plastic?

My advice would be to buy 1 relay for each side.....not use the one relay for both lamps.

I did a little more studing the relay,So with the one relay I got it will wire just one side and the passenger side will not use the relay? So I do not use the oem power from the passenger side light but on the driver side I use the power from the oem light? So in the pictures of the grounding points do I need to put my ground next to the fender or can I just add it to the ones from the factory gound. Looking at the air box picture do I just plug the yellow male end to the female ballast and ground it to the fender and plug in the headlight and that side is done?

Yup! Do they work? I didn't have to use the passenger side power plug. I taped mine up with electrical tape.
