The common complaint of drivers today is that the stock halogen headlight bulbs are just not bright enough.More and more individuals are converting their halogen bulbs to bi-xenon hid headlights.HID (high intensity discharge) conversion kits emit up to 3 time more light and last considerably longer than their halogen bulb equivalents. Bi xenon hid bulbs differ from single beam xenon bulbs (e.g, H7 xenon bulb) in their function, the bi-xenon bulb has both the dipped beam and the high beam (flasher) in one unit. Installing a bi-xenon hid conversion kit differs slightly from a single beam hid conversion kit, because the kit requires a relay harness. Bi-xenon hid conversion kits are common in the following bulb formats: H4, H13, 9004,9007 Step by Step Installation guide 1> Turn off your vehicle, remove key from ignition and gain access to the headlight bulbs 2> Start on one side (any) – remove headlamp dust cover, and halogen head lamp bulb. (leave the original connector for the bi xenon bulb exposed for the time being. 3> Insert Bi-xenon bulb 4> Loosely replace dust cover 5> Repeat steps 2-4 for the other side. 6> Connect the live wire of the relay to the positive terminal of the battery, and one earth wire of the relay to the negative terminal of the battery. The remaining earth wire needs to be connected to the body of the car (earthed). This leaves two rectangular shaped connectors which are to be plugged into the ballasts. 7> From the relay there will be one plug for the original wiring loom which was left exposed (step 2). Connect the plug to the original wiring loom connector (where the original halogen bulb plugged in). 8> Connect the ballasts to the bi xenon hid bulbs, note these bulbs have three wires to connect, two connect to the ballast and one connects to the relay harness. 9> Secure ballasts and the bi xenon relay harness with cable ties then secure dust covers. Typical problems with the bi-xenon hid headlight setup: The lower number of components in a hid conversion kit the better, with the bi-xenon hid headlamp conversion kit, the typical issues that arise are as follows: > Relay failure > Earthing points – sometimes the earth connection to the body of the car becomes loose resulting in the relative bi-xenon hid bulb not working >Solenoid failure – the bi-xenon bulb relies upon a solenoid to pitch the bulb in the high beam position, sometimes this ceases preventing the bi-xenon bulb from functioning properly.
