(Thread Starter)
The low beam has a total of four fuses associated with it: 11,12,24,25
11 and 12 are the 7.5 A and 24,25 are the 5A.
After installing the Mccollouch HID kit, should I replaced the all the fuses with a 15A or just 11 and 12, and replace 24 and 25 with a 10A? Or should I just replaced only fuse 11 and 12?


Thanks

What you need to consider is the size of the wires and the amperage they are carrying. Run too much current through too small a wire with too large a fuse and you risk melting the insulation and starting a fire. here is a site that give wire size vs amps info. http://www.batterieswholesale.com/ba...wire_gauge.htm

HIDs run at a lower wattage and amperage than halogens, except at startup, and especially cold starts. Replace the main low beam fuses.
