i recently installed new projector head lights, they were pre wired with harnesses to plug into the existing plugs so the install was fast and easy. The low beams work fine, the angel eyes i installed work great too, but the fog lights no longer go on and the high beams don't work either. Has anyone heard of this before. Would it be a short somewhere or maybe the pre-wiring is messed up? Please help...

more than likely its the prewiring setup they gave you. I have the same problem with mine. Splice directly into the new connector and make sure all the plugs go onto the right pin.

how do i determine whether or not each wire is going to the right place?



i bought the lights off of ebay, it didn't specify a brand, the lens says djouto. if thats the brand i don't know. they are beautiful, the angel eyes install can be a bitch but its worth it.

Have you checked the bulbs? Its possible you didnt plug the right wires into the right pins, and its also possible that the highbeam ground disconnected from the lowbeam.

However, the fogs are designed to go out when the highs are on. This leads me to believe that somewhere along the line a switch or relay has died causing the two functions to cancel each other out, thus illuminating neither.

i got the high beams to work, ground problem. but still no luck with the fog lights. if i turn the switch on, and touch the fog light's fuse with a tester (which would give it a ground), then the lights go on, but go of when i take the tester off. so it must be a ground problem. they worked fine before i installed the projectors so i don't know where to look. relay maybe?

Indeed, most likely a relay problem.
