That is a heavy price for some lights but they look good

So I want to know if this diagram on page 23 apples to the 2013 focus. I have been running a set of 35w hids in the car for almost a month.

I get the dipped beam error but once I shut the lights off and turn them back on again the code is gone. And when I do systems check its all clear.

Page 23? Not sure how that figures out, I only have 8 pages in this thread. But anywho.

Yes, all the hid ballas/harness/resistor connection diagrams are pretty much the same and will work for the 2013 focus.
Not sure why cycling your lights would clear the dipped bulb error though.
You should get resistors anyways.

That's because your view settings are different than the standard.
He's talking about this.

I started to have one light not firing. I had both lights not firing so I just pulled them out and put my halogen bulbs back in. I'll rock OEM until/if I ever get projectors, then buying a high end kit from retrofit resource

Since I live in canada and we have DRL here which run on lower voltage, I took that wiring diagrams and added what we (canadian) needed to still be able to run HID fine with the DRL



This is what youll need:

Relay Harness

Capacitor
http://retro-solutions.net/product-i...nk-pid586.html

Resistor
http://retro-solutions.net/product-i...hm-pid601.html

My personal choice of HID

I have 35watt ballasts and they worked fine for the first 8 months but now the one light flickers and will cut out. I have replaced the bulbs and cleaned the entire system. I keep seeing that the focus has a hard time with 35 watt ballasts. What can I do? I also have relays and resistors on my car too.

Anyone know where to pick some stock housings up for cheap? Tried finding some online and they're all up there in price. No real time to be able to run to a junk yard.
