Got everything in! Still getting the dipped beam error when lights first come on, but no flicker or shut off! They look good, will the error stop coming up, or is it there to stay?

If you install the resistors correctly your headlights will never get the dipped beam error. But with using your relay harness they will never shut off. The resistors are there to just take away the error.

Yes you need to hook up the resistor to the headlight not the relay harness use the plugs that isn't being used in your headlight

I tried every which way and can't get the dipped beam off. Its not too bad, only on for 5 seconds . I will just have to deal with it for now! I'm just happy they work! Thanks for your help ! Maybe sometime this month I'll make a trip to psl and we can take a look, to fix it!

i just want to ask here... any chance to make fluted lenses work with HIDs? my lights still arent cutting it and I cant see crap.

also for fog lights, Im not sure how the focus ones are but on mine the backs are sealed and I dont see a way to put hids in, its just the two wires and a rubber seal.

on the 626 you have the sealed lights you need to look up the open housing conversions. I used to do them all the time for the fbodys all firebirds and most older camaros had those sealed beams. But to answer your question you can make hids work in anything.

I have done HID kits for Quad race teams Monster and Fox to name a few.

If you know what your doing you can fit them anywhere.
