Default Hid install 4 headlight system

Ok i have installed a few sets of HID's in the past with no trouble at all. But it seems Dodge Ram is the first to stump me. These are for my own truck, a 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 sport with the 4 headlamp system. I purchased an H11 kit for the lows, 9005 for the Hi's and the same for the fogs I believe. Attempted the lows and nothing, switched plugs around etc. no results. I have read other forums on here and really didnt understand quite what i need to do. Also am i going to have the same problems with hi's and fogs. The DRL's appear to run off the highs. If some could please help me i would greatly appreciate it.

The DRLs will cause you issues unless you get a DRL rectifier, I know oracle has a kit. Are you just plugging them into the factory harness? If so, the dodge electrical system is whacked, literally, so you need to run HIDs off of relay harnesses with the MIL cancellers (basically a resistor in the stock harness). You shouldn't have any issue with the fogs though, I've never had any with them on the installs I've done or helped with.

The relay harness is dead simple to install and couple that with the cancellers, you're looking at a quick job to get it all together.

And finally, welcome to the Z, don't forget to stop by the newbie section to get the official welcome.

What kit did you go with? You need H10's for your fogs not the 9005's. Relay harness for the low's, fogs are straight plug and play. Can't help you on the hi's as I didn't do them.

The plugs may be the same/similar but the wattage is too high for fogs (I think). 9145's swap with H10's, I believe.
