so i bought this HID kit on ebay, it's a plug and play kit. I took it to a shop for installation and after it's installed, im told the lights will only work when the high beam is on, so now my fog lights don't work. I contacted the seller of the kit and he said the installer didn't install it properly most likely. Can anybody tell what's keeping this kit from working with my brights on.

btw, i own an eclipse spyder gt '03, please help me!!!

He wired it up to the high beam wires then, what a dumbass.
:agreed: The only way that the HIDs would only go on with the high beam is if they were actually wired to the high beam. Take out the HID kit and plug it into the low beam harness. Simple plug and play as the kit should be. I would also get back to the shop and either have them fix it or get your money back.

If it was plug-and-play, why not put it in yourself? :dunno:

The shop fucked up the install. They just need to move the HID wiring over to the low beams. Damn, can't they follow instructions written in broken english?? LOL ;)

Seriously, the fix should take less than 2 minutes.

yup they wired the hid lights wrong, all you have to do is reverse the 2 wires by the harness ...so that it is wired to come on with your lows, instead of wired to come on with your highs....the shop you did it at is darn stupid.

You took a plug and play kit to a shop for install.. :lol: :lol:

What was said above is the correct fix. Additionally, as the car is configured, the OEM foglights will NOT be on with the highbeams. So, if you cut the highbeams and replace with HID's, the same still holds true. If you install them on the low-beams like you were suppsed to, then you're fine.

Now with it saying plug and play it seems kind of common sense, but alot of them even with being plug and play still say to get it professionally done.

True highjack, but the factory reflective housing is going to get him pulled over real quick, and it will look like shit.

:) In his defense I ill say that both of my HID kits were marketed as "plug and play". However, BOTH required wire stripping, soldering, heat shrinking, etc. Far from what I consider to be "plug and play". Also, my "Engrish" version instructions were crap. It was easer or me to just wire them up without looking at the instructions than it was for me to try to follow them.

I was thinking the same thing... those might have some SERIOUS glare. I don't recall seeing any OEMs with HIDs installed :scratch:


BTW, I just got my 2nd set finished today (foglights) :hspin:

True. I laughed at the directions that were provided with mine as well.

I did the same. I have 2 sets of HID's, one on the lowbeam of the Depo's, and the other installed in the 03+ OEM Foglights on a standalone switch. :)

I had a problem with my install. When I turn on my lights, one of the bulbs turns on for a millisecond then shuts off. I've replugged everything in and it's all nice and snug and I don't believe any wires are touching. What could be causing this? TIA.
