How to install the Xenon HID Light
Before you purchase your kit, first thing you need to do is to find out what is the appropriate bulb size
( i.e. H1, H3, H4, H7, H9, H10, H11, H13, 9004, 9005, 9006, 9007, 5202, D1S, D2S, D4S ) for the application.
If you cannot find your car model in our web site, you can check your headlights or fog lights application at
Slyvania auto lighting replacement guide, which is the most comprehensive web site about auto lighting applications.
This installation guide demonstrates how to install a HID conversion kit to your headlights,
and you can apply the same installation steps and connection of wires if you are installing fog lights as well.
Note that different cars have different shapes and protections for their headlights; therefore, some extra steps might be needed in order for easier installation, for instance,
taking out the bumper so that you can have more space to reach the back of your headlights or fog lights, or you might need to remove some covers that protect the back openings of the headlight light bulbs.
This article can work as a general installation guide about how to connect the HID kit appropriately.
Here is a wiring diagram showing how to connect your HID kit:
For Bi-Xenon HID kit (Hi/Low HID Kit), please use the following wiring diagram instead:
HID installation Step 1
Disconnect the car battery. Remove the factory light bulbs. If your vehicle’s headlights have dust caps, please remove them as well.
HID installation Step 2
If your vehicle is equipped with headlight dust caps, drill an 1″ (24mm) hole to accommodate the wiring harness.
HID installation Step 3
Remove the xenon HID bulb from the protective casing.
Be careful NOT to touch the bulb. Handle it by its plastic base. If any grease or dirt gets on the bulb wipe clean with rubbing alcohol.
HID installation Step 4
Put the bulb’s wiring harness through the dust cap (as illustrated). Insert the xenon HID bulb into your headlight and secure. Connect the spade terminals (positive & negative) to the factory headlight wiring harness.
HID installation Step 5
Insert the rubber boot (on the wiring harness) through the hole on the dust cap (which you drilled earlier).
HID installation Step 6
Connect the bulb to the ballast. The quick dis-connects will “click” once fully secured.
HID installation Step 7
Find a mounting location for the ballast. Use the ballast bracket, screws or zip-ties as needed.
*Do not drill holes on the ballast box.
*Mount away from moving components.
*Mount to a secure location.
*Avoid hot areas that might lead to ballast overheat.
HID installation Step 8
Check your vehicle’s headlight fuse. Make sure it is rated at 20AMPS or higher.
Replace the fuse with a 20 AMP fuse if your headlight fuse is of a lower rating.
HID installation Step 9
Reconnect the battery cables.
HID installation Step 10
Turn light switch on and allow your new xenon light to run for 10 minutes.
Bi-Xenon HID Kit Installation Guide
1) Clean all connectors and wipe the HID bulbs and connectors with rubbing alcohol
2) Install the HID bulbs into the headlight housing
3) Connect the HID bulbs to the ballast (2 round quick-disconnects)
4) Connect the high beam control wires (small rectangular connectors)
5) Connect the ballasts to the Hi/Lo wiring harness (oval connectors with yellow rubber seals)
6) Connect the 3-pin socket on the wiring harness to ONE of the headlight sockets
7) Connect the thick red wire to the battery positive
8) Connect the thick black wires to the battery negative or ground
9) Mount the ballast and clean up the wiring harness with zip ties
*Do not drill holes on the ballast box
*Mount away from moving components
*Mount to a secure location
*Avoid hot areas that might lead to ballast overheat.
10) Turn headlight switch on and allow your new xenon light to run for 10 minutes11) You’re done! Enjoy!
What is Xenon HID Light?
High Intensity Discharge (HID) lamp is a new type of lighting technology that
replaces the conventional halogen lamp. HID lamps replace filaments of halogen
lamps with electrodes. It uses electrical discharge technology to ignite inert gas
(Xenon gas) contained in a sealed bulb inside. It was first developed and used in
mid-90s, and up until today, this expensive better technology are still only used on
highend Luxury and Performance cars. Now, it can be used on yours! Please
check local laws / regulations before purchase the product. We will not be held
responsible in anyway for the misuse and violation of the laws when using these
What are the advantages of Xenon HID?
High Intensity Brightness, 3 times brighter than the halogen lamp. Way longer life
than the halogen lamp, last 2500 hours or more. That should well cover at least 5+
years on the car. Energy efficient, it only draws 35W of power while a normal halogen
lamp consumes 55W but produce less brightness. In addition, unlike the halogen lamp
which has filament inside the bulb. The filament is easily broken and the bulb will no
longer be working once the filament is broken. With HID, there is no filament inside the
bulb,instead there is Xenon Gas. Since there is no filament inside the HID bulb, there
will be no failure bulbs causing by the break of filament for all HID bulbs. Finally the color,
it will produce whiter light beam that would illuminate the road ahead to produce better
visibility and create a safer driving condition and reduce accidents.
What is 6000K, 8000K, 10000K?
What does "K" represent?
The "K" presents color temperature, it's the abbreviation of Kelvin (K). Here is a chart
to show you what the color will look like in Kelvin. The lower the number, the closer
to the Red. The normal halogen lamp has 3200K, which is yellowish color as you can
see in the chart. While many car manufacturers has already provided Xenon HID
Headlights on their top end luxury and performance cars, they are still using the
Generation1 4300K which is whiter than the halogen lamp, but not white enough.
The Generation2 Xenon HID has 6000K which is what the Sunlight has, pure white.
Therefore, it out performances the halogen lamp of course but also out performances
the Generation1 4300K. We recommend 6000K is the best and suitable for any conditions.
If your car already has factory Xenon HID, then you will only need to change the bulbs
to have it upgraded to 6000K or above color temperature. We sell replacement HID bulbs
too, so you can check our eBay stores or contact us to purchase the Xenon HID bulbs
separately.The higher the "K" goes, you will see that it becomes more bluish and purplish.
6000K is pure white. The ideal color temperature for the people who likes a little bluish in
their Xenon HID should choose 8000K. Only the more extreme people should consider
10000K and 12000K. Please check your local laws/regulations before you upgrade anything.
The seller will hold no responsibility when the product is misuse,mishandled and has issues
with local laws/regulations. We offer all HID bulb sizes in 6000K, 8000K,10000K and 12000K.
Please note that it is normal to see when the Xenon HID first light up to appear more bluish than after maybe 30 seconds of lighting up. Basically the "normal" operational
color will show after 30~60 seconds of turning on the Xenon HID.
What is D2R, D2S and D2C?
D2R, D2S and D2C are all HID's bulb sizes. D2S bulbs are made for vehicles with projector
headlight housings such as BMW 3 Series, Honda S2000. D2R bulbs are made for vehicles
with reflector headlight housings such as Lexus IS300, Infiniti G35.
D2C bulbs is a new version invented in Japan. It is universal fit for both D2S and D2R housing.
