I just got the angel eye HID halo projectors. One of the LED lights in the strand of four on the bottom of the lights is out, and I don't know what bulb to buy to replace it. It's only one of em that's out, but I don't know what bulb to buy to replace it. Also one of the parking lights is out as well on my halo projectors.

Where can I buy bulbs to replace the parking light and one of the LED bulbs in my halo projectors? I have 6000K HID's right now.

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

Get a multimeter set it to 12v AC reader..

Thhen turn on the lights then dip the prods in to the positive and negative feeds of the balist to see if there is fluxuation.

Ofcourse 12v is what is what you should be reading on it.

HIDs in factory reflector headlights

Title says most of it, but I am looking to upgrade to the 4300K or the 6000K HIDs but I have stock headlights for my 06. I half read it's "illegal" but if you adjust them correctly they shouldn't be a problem... at least that's kind of what I gather.

I am having a lighting issue. I bought a used 01 taco. It had HIDs installed, but I had issues with them since I drove it home from the guys house. I noticed a couple days after I bought it, Whe my headlights are on, and I use the turn signal, the relay clicks very fast, and when I inspected this, both my rear tail it's and turning signals flash, alternating between turning signal light and brake lights. When I press on the brake pedal, they function as designed. When the headlights are off, the blinkers work fine until I press the brake, then the issue happens again. Also, the HIDs stopped working. My incandescent bulbs that are supposed to be my "low beams" only work when my high beams are engaged. I have tested the connections at the headlight bulbs, and I only get 12v when the highs are engaged. The previous owner had installed aftermarket power windows, but this should not affect this. I am thinking the circuit board located under the drivers side dash might be the culperate. Anyone out there have any suggestions?

Well I'm a rookie and I'm stuck. I got the black version of the- 2nd Generation Projector Headlights with the ccfl's the adjustment screws move the bulb in the center but thats the high beams. How do I adjust the projector part- the low beam? It doesnt need much but the passenger side plane is greater than the drivers just need to move it up and outside a hair. I guess I should have started asking- is it even adjustable? I know there not the greatest lights but I like them so far.

IIRC you adjust them just like you would regular bulbs by using the screws on the backs of the headlights.

Ok, I did that now and it works!! I just didnt see it moving the projector part, which is my bad. Even still I cant get a good pattern. The way it looks is like a flat plane on the left into a outside curve on the right. By looking at it, it could be said that both the projectors might be the same because they show the same pattern in the same way I was covering up one headlight at a time with a towel and its the same pattern a flat left and a round right hand side I hope what I'm saying makes sense.

If I should start a new thread about it just let me know.

Could it be the shape of the light in the projector? Could it just be the cheapy projector itsself?

I figure they should be universally compatible with either side cause it only a light but it looks as though I have 2 right hand side patterns lol. I just spent the last hour fooling with it driving around and shinning it on a wall and all that mess but it all does no good cause of the flat left and round right. i'll get pics up if it needs to be seen
