tampa_trick I have always loved this type of headlamp but had never had the chance to buy one (they are really expensive here in Brazil), anyway, I bought them in the USA and brought them back to Brazil, the problem is that the headlamp's connector is different from the original one:
(Projector Headlamp connector - Grey square)


(OEM Headlamp connector - Black oval)


As I didn't want to cut the original wires and plugs (in the future I can reinstall the OEM headlamps with no problems and will keep the wiring intact) I figured a way out:
I managed to buy a connector with same shape as the OEM headlamp connector :)


So this weekend I've got some work to do :)

I'm in doubt about the lighting scheme I'll use:

1 - city light
2 - low beam
3 - high beam
4 - turning light

As the LED bulbs on the eyebrow can be replaced with 194 bulbs, I was wondering it would look good as a turning light together with the other two lights

That's what im dealing with and no resistor on the board.
in this case you have a headlamp just like mine. the resistors are in the two black boxes that are "glued" to the back of the headlamp, therefore you don't have to use resistors on the boards.

(Resistors indicated in yellow)

spydero3373 PM me if anyones got a solution! Thanks

spydero3373 Anyone else have a problem with the halos, did everything in the article and got the right side to work beautifully. But my left side halos both went out at the same time, which is odd, tried replacing them as well and nothing. So what I think happened was that little step down transformer broke for some reason. Anyone know how to fix or replace that?

Different connectors...

Take a look....sorry for poor quality.. Took on my iPad....








Actually it's very different from the first pics from the op.... No resistor even on the board...

And there's a connector that connects to the board.. But it's hard to get off.. I've been messing with the connector but it won't budge .

BIMMERKID21 Hey I'm looking at the directions and it's sorta vague....

3.
You can also connect the black wire from halo and LEDs on the ground wire of driving lights .. White wire goes to positive wire of driving light...

Well here's my scenario.

I have a euro grill, so my us grill is going bye bye... I got a new socket that's 1157 and fits the housing instead of the 1156 housing. I have the projector style led switchback amber/white xenon bulbs...
Now the socket had two black wires on it for major minor..l but no ground, so I soldered a grounding wire to the metal base / side of the socket...

Now what I like to do is cut the connector off the grill light wires...

All I know is take the grounding wire on the new socket and wire to the ground wire on the stock harness....but what about the other two wires the socket came with Zero info about which wire is major or Minor....

Now which wires would I tap the + and -s of the halos and LEDs to?

And which wire off the new socket goes to which wires in the stock wire harnes?
