HID Conversion Kit Weirdness
This has me stumped, I hope somebody can help. My truck is an 2003 XLT Supercab 4.0L
I ordered on of those HID conversion kits. Here is a quick description of the system:
Each bulb sits in an actuator that moves the entire bulb in and out for high/low beams
Each bulb has a ballast/igniter
There is one relay/controller box which uses one of the original headlight sockets for a signal to turn the ballasts on and signal for the actuators. This box also takes power directly from the battery for the ballasts.
I wired it all up, turned it on, and the bulbs are in "high beam" mode (sticking out). I looked on the dash and the high beam indicator is dimly lit, not full brightness but is for sure on a little. Also, the fog lights won't turn on. If you try the high beams, the indicator glows its normal brightness but all else remains the same. With a test light I tested the both the wires for high beam and low beam, they both have power.
Here is where it gets weird. Remember, one of the original bulb sockets (drivers side) is connected to the relay box, the other (passenger side) is not plugged into anything. When I leave everything the same (as described above) and then plug the original bulb into the passenger socket, everything works great. The HID bulbs pop in and out for high/low beams, the fog lights work in low beam, everything is great except I have a lit bulb hanging under my hood.
Any help would be great. I am pretty comfortable with most things electronic, but this one has me stumped. Any wiring diagrams or help would be great. Thanks in advance!
