one power wire (red) connects to the battery to supply constant 12v power to the system. then you should have 2 sets of wires with plugs with a ground (black) wire off of them, and one plug that you should plug into the battery side OEM headlight plug. the 2 sets of plugs (one longer one that should run to the opposite side of the vehicle) plug them into the HID ballast, and find a solid spot to ground the wire. That should do it...I hope.

and then:
http://www.theretrofitsource.com/pro...roducts_id=237 so we can switch to highs and so we don't get warnings on the dash.

For running lights, I think I'm going to run angel eyes in the shrouds, and wire it up using the low beam off the OEM harness. They will then be on with the lower voltage for our DRL and also when we are in low beam when the lights are actually on. Provided that the lower voltage will be enough to light them up... If not then it will be LEDs, I will probably put a strip in somewhere and call it a day.

Pretty sure this set up will work, but I've only been really researching it this morning... Read ALL of this and it very clearly explains pretty much everything. Best description I've read, very simple but informative. http://www.theretrofitsource.com/trs_tech.php

Hopefully if this is wrong someone will correct it, I'm self edumicated when it comes to this stuff, but I can usually pull it off!

Has anyone had any problems with the ddm tuning, with the error eliminator box?? I had ddm on my old truck with no problems hence why I want to go back to them, I just hear of a lot of problems with peoples hids on here due to the computer programming these trucks are under. I would prefer not to pay retro fit price but if I have to I will.

Question 2013 Projector flickering low beams

Hey everyone, here's my issue.


I have a 2013 Dodge Ram Sport Crew cab 4x4 and i bought VVME.com HID kit 35 watt xexon's with relays for both sets of HID's.

THe fogs work great no issues...

The Low beams work if just the accessory power is on, but once i start the engine the hid's flicker and turn off and the relay is buzzing like crazy. Why is it that it works fine with the motor off??

I have read a lot on this issue and i guess i need a capacitor for both of the projector low beams, but i want to find out close by in michigan or ontario canada. Does anyone know where i can set a set of "capacitors" and maybe a more heavy duty relay too??

Do all the 2013's have this issue??? I've installed a few kits before from VVME.com and they are great with no issues, i had them in my srt-4 neon for 4 years with no issues ever and i installed them in my buddies 2013 dodge ram express (non projector style) and his worked fine without capacitors too, so im really lost on this issue......

please help asap...

So i went in last night and did the install on my projector headlights with the low beam conversion. I installed everything correctly, the HALO'S and LED'S to the parking lamp wires and the 9006 harness into the projector. no flickering at all.

My only issue is when i turn my high beams on the HID low beams will not turn off like there suppose too, normal?

Another question, i wired my HALO'S and LED'S into my parking light wires because i have the quad lamp lights with the DRL's and when i do the remote start everything lights up but when my lights are turned off and the DRL's are running the HALO's and LED's wont light

I am hoping someone can clear this up... I have a 2013 ram 1500 Big Horn, Quad lamps

At first I was going to install 6000k 35w AC hids for my lows and fogs with error eliminator or just get the canbus ballasts. A buddy of mine told me to use the relay harness for em so I dont fry my computer if anything is defective. I am confused and cannot find the answer I am looking for anywhere. Seeing how the electrical system in these trucks are so sensitive, I wanna do it right the first time. Getting to the point, how am I supposed to install these properly?

All help is greatly appreciated!
