Syncing all 4 headlights??
« on: January 05, 2018, 20:46:14 »

So new years eve my driver side low beam died on me. Decided to try an replace the sealed units with some LEDs..

Going to add some relays, and am considering trying to get all 4 in sync so the low/high beams fire on all 4. Has anyone done this, that might aid me in wiring this up?

Just did this on my limo as I was working on a old pete at work that had all 4 wired up, just go to napa and get a pair of headlight sockets, cut you high beam plug off, wire the two vertical wires the same as before, and splice the horizontal wire into the horizontal wire on the lowbeam. The headlight plugs from napa are a whole $2.50 each

I prefer the factory GE sealed beams. Lots of cars around here have the Xenon conversion and they are always blinding.

It's not the hid's that make it to bright it's the people that put them in old headlight housings that have become cloudy it defuse the light and make for one bright spot

blinding is mostly because the focal point of a HID bulb is not at the same space as a halogen , the focus of the light will never be right and most conversion also don't install a projector lens too

Don't get the LED lights. They're a garbage beam pattern that won't actually make you see any better and will definitely blind people.

I agree with Iron Brick smd led have a beam pattern of 120 degrees may be ok for low beams but will suck on high
