Re: Pleasr HELPPPP having issues with aftermarket projectors PLEASEE HELPP

So you are sure the bulbs are good, and theres power to the wire so its not the switch.... I'm guessing ground. Try testing different power and ground wire combos and I think you'll find your problem. If the ground wire isnt connected, the circuit wont be complete and that would hinder it from illuminating your bulbs.

A good idea would be to hook a multimeter up to the ends of the connectors and test the voltage. Most multimeters can also test if the circuit is complete/ properly grounded.

Re: Pleasr HELPPPP having issues with aftermarket projectors PLEASEE HELPP

noticed the 516 number. I am out on Long Island too. There is also a meet out west just after where the northern state and 110 meet. You are welcome to come by. As far as your lights go. We can meet up and I can take a look at it. Is it a regular halogen setup or HID?

Do you have your multimeter on the correct setting- what does your other light register at? Trace the wires back.

From the expressway go to 110 (exit 49) and go north. Right after the northern state you make a left at the light (it is a funky turn). Make the first right and on the left hand side there is a building that says "Social Security". We meet up on the lower level of the parking garage. About this headlights....do the bulbs light dim? Did you switch bulbs before or after you had this problem?

Re: Pleasr HELPPPP having issues with aftermarket projectors PLEASEE HELPP

you do know that your car is a ground switched H4, right? that means you need to splice the single power wire to go to both head lights, and then each low and high have respective grounds. can you verify it's powered right? on the H4 plug, you should have 1 power and 2 grounds, not 2 powers and 1 ground.
