Here is where the problem lies. I tried to install the hids and harley headlight and it just didnt happen.
Heres the stock headlight; which I really like
Here is the hearly light installed, well jsut sitting in the spot. They are not bolted in which is why there is a gap.
This is the model number of the back of the harley headlight. is this a ford peiece or an aftermarket one
Here is where the problem lies. he told me it was a simple bolt on installaion for the hids. He lied here is the factory headlight harness; notice the three wires
Here is the plug for the headlight for the hids. Also the hids have a ground tab and a power wire that I guess need to go to the battery? Notice only two wires and tabs
here is the hid box; Is this company any good. can I get a connector to moutn to my headlights or am I going to have to cut and splice this to my low beams. I will not cut and splice this; I will sell it all first. I am not really a fan of the black headlight anyway. I love chrome its my weakness.
This is the hid bulb ploug in the back of the headlight could I get another wiring kit for this headlight that will work wiithout splicing
Any suggestion would be great. If my truck was black they would look sick. I love chrome so I am not sure about them
I was just sitting here thinking and I think i ahve a solution. I would use my voltage detecor to isolate which of the wires whith stripes on it is my low beam headlights. I would use them wire connectors which clamp on the exsisiting wire so i dont mess up my factory harness and do the same for the ground. Then all i would have to do is run the ground and the hot from the ballast box to the battery. I think this should work but its 20's degrees out so I will wait and try this prolly tommorow and because it is getting dark out. This should work and if I dont like the harley headlights I could just undo the quick connects and put some liquid electric tape around where the connector stripped the insolation and use my stock chrome headlights again.
I never did hids before but do the ballats box have a power and ground that needs to be run to the battery? Do they draw that much power initally? I know they use less voltage once they turn on but they draw more amps to power on. Will the low beam hids be better than my high and low beam regular headlights?
here is the connector I am talkign about using. i know its not the best but I dont want to cut my facotry harness.
