Default HID Information, How-To's and FAQ

There are so many posts here with good information that it's time to capture them here in a single thread.

We had started this section once before but due to a technical glitch (I'm not technical, therefore a glitch occurred ) we get to start over.

So if you find some relevant information, a How-To or have some insight on Frequently Asked Questions and their answers, PM me a link to what you have found here or one you've previously posted. And if you are creating some information on HID's, let me know.

This thread is closed to posting.

I am brand new to the forum and was wondering what are some good projector headlights for my 03 1500. I just want to make sure I'm getting quality but also a decent price (as is everyone I'm sure)

You should have gotten some relays that came with your wiring kit. You need to install that and it should fix the flickering. Had same issue with mine.

Actually I believe you have a load issue. A 6ohm 50watt resistor actually. Check this post out http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=109259

Has anybody bought from HID Canada.com, I sure like their "straight-forward" and practical approach to their upgrade kits.

A question for the Canadian dudes that converted to HID's. I have the dual, not the quad headlight setup, my DRL's are low voltage that run off the highbeam, I am looking at Retro's marimoto elite conversion. Has anyone converted with the dual headlights? How hard would the bi-xenon setup be?
