new guy to the forums

Hello everyone,

I have a question for the ones who have swapped out the headlights for these:

http://ep.yimg.com/ca/I/yhst-5006790...2250_482772829

I just installed mines and when i turned them on, the bottom portion of the lights wont turn on.

The ones i bought were did not include an HID conversion.

Any thoughts? I can post pics if that will help.

Thanks in advance!

you will find all kinds of helpful advice and technical knowhow from us members. There are plenty of discussions happening and lighting is the most popular. This forum is easy to navigate and find the answers you seek.

Try a search of the entire forum using the search bar near the top of the page. Use a few key words like after market headlights or eagle eye.... many members are using this headlight and im sure they will chime in. But until then you might find just the answer you are looking for by using the search tool.

Now i do not have tis headlight as i did a retrofit with real projectors, but from my understanding of yours is there are black and white wires that must be tied into your car either to the parking lights or the low beam. If you have done this there is a good chance you have the polarity backwards. Try reversing the leads. This is due to tge operating nature of tge diode. It only permits the flow of electricity in one direction and thus will only function if hooked up properly.
