Sorry to hear you're still having trouble with those. Wish I were closer and could get my hands on them.

update



ok halo's do work. i hooked them up to the battery to test them out. i still can't tap into the parking lights to get them to light up that way. maybe the quick taps i have are garbage, i'ma try and get some smaller ones perhaps 10-12 gauge quick taps would be better. or is there anyother way to tap into the harness without them?

Halo's Led's working finally

ok finally got them working.


Turn signal Bulb, looks to be the same as stock.


H9 headlight bulb, for hi and low beams.


Tapped Parking signal for halo's.. thanks to all that helped and offered advice with this.





for the parking lights, white/purple wire was power, and wire with black stripe was ground.









ok took alot of hours. but i say it was definitely worth it. Next update will be of output and cutoff, right now output is not very good i can tell you that, cut off is alot better than stock. .



i'll try and get some better one's for you guys also.

Allright there you have.. Next time we'll add Hid's h9's and see how those looks asap.
