I have a 2010 Laramie with quad lights and Put 55w 8000k Hids in my Hi, Low, and fogs. It was a nightmare. When I bought the kits I hadn't read up on it before hand. I had the kits, then I had to get cancellers for the error codes, then I had to order resistors and put them inline as well. From what I have read if you use the canbus ballasts it is supposed to eliminate all the issues and error codes. Maybe someone else has used them and can shed more light. I didn't have to do anything special with the fog lights, because the computer doesn't monitor those, but I had to add a ground wire to each of my fog lamp harness' to get rid of annoying feed back in my stereo.

It seems to me that relays are essential to the HIDs so I went and ordered 6000k 35w kits from ddm tuning with the relays. I know I dont need them for fogs but better to have the added protection. I just need to install them but I read today that some guys still have problems with the relays (which I thought was to eliminate all the problems) and others are using this system flawlessly. Some say they have flickering which I think would mean there needs to be a capacitor or resistor for the factory harness to stop this. I am only using low beams and fogs. Will I encounter problems with my low beams with only relays? DDM sent me slim ballasts. All info is much appreciated!

So i tried installing my fogs with the relay, only to find out i have to extend the power. So i went ahead and tried it the way everyone says to by just plugging it in and i get flickering and shut down, but no bulb out message.

^^^ I'm getting the same issue with my 2013 Power Wagon!! I believe the only other option from here is to install a wiring harness. I'm going to order one this weekend and cross my fingers it solves this issue!

I tested out the relay harness for the fog lights and it works like a charm! I didnt get a chance to test the lows tho. Taking off the grille and all in -30 with wind chill isnt such a great idea, only to test it out and put everything back together. I will try it asap and let you know how it goes. Or unless someone beat me to it.

Default Question

I just ordered a set of 2014 Projector headlights for my 2010. I ordered the projector adaptor from RetroShop also. So, I am thinking of getting an HID kit also. What is the cheapest, but decent quality kit you guys know of? Also, from my reading, I am assuming I need a relay for the HID kit right, even though I have ordered the projector adapter???

Anyone have advice on whether to get 35w or 55w HIDs with the black express package projectors? I saw something about the 55w melting the lens but on my old ford I had 35w and the computer thought I had headlights out and gave me an idiot light...any info is greatly appreciated
