HOW TO-install an HID relay harness

HID relay harness diagram

This is the appropriate grounding point on the drivers side. There is one just like this on the passeneger side right between the airbox and the coolant tank. These are the proper grounding points for HID relays.

Re: HOW TO-install an HID relay harness

Scott, is this needed for every aftermarket hid install? meaning what happens without the relays? Sorry for the n00b questions but this is what is holding me back from installing my hids.

Also, is this necessary for the fogs too?

any info is appreciated

thanks

Re: HOW TO-install an HID relay harness

This is needed on thee WK for all HID aftermarket kit installs. You will get a strobing affect without the relays.

With the fogs...its hit a miss....but it seems like the 08-09 WK's dont need the relay harness. Just by reading the forums most WK's need a relay harness on the fogs. i would get one just to be safe.
