Halo Help ASAP

Hi guys. I ordered and installed HID Halos (ccfl) on my 300. Having a few problems. The high and low beams work perfectly. I cannot get my Halos to work. The Halos are wired to the Parking lights. I installed the driver side first. Turned the switch (inside the car) to the parking lamp setting. Every thing including Halo worked perfect. I then installed the passenger side. When checking the halos, while on the parking lamp setting neither set of parking lamps would come on, nor would the halos. However, the turn signals still worked. The funny thing is that if I unplug the passanger side parking lamps, the driver side will turn back on. Please help me. I have a few days left on my warranty? Did I wire something wrong? Is it a blown fuse? Anything to help me out.

The headlights came prewired... and i am not really looking to re-wire. Also, if i wire straight to the battery wont the halo stay on any time the car is on? This would mean that when I turn my headlights on the driver side halo will turn off while the passenger stays on.

Sounds to me like something is going to ground on the last halo you installed... check your connections there and ensure that there is no wire exposed and touching anything it shouldn't be!

I think that he was saying wire it to the battery to ensure the halo itself isn't dead and going to ground.

I will try that. It might be difficult because every thing is wired in to a clip, so the headlights are plug and play. I will let you know can figure out.

talked with company that I purchased the lights from, they said it most likely that inverter is bad, and that is why the halos wont work. They are shipping a new inverter . If this doesn't solve the problem, they offered to ship a new headlight. Hopefully this will solve the problem. I am still trying to understand how having the passenger light unplugged allow the driver side to work?

Pry because when both are connected its one circuit and if there is any thing wrong it wipes out everything.

^I agree I think a ground is the culprit. If there isn't a good ground then the circuit will not be complete thus not alowing the lights to work. Could also be a bad connection elsewhere but that's where id start at least.

At least they are sending out a inverter so fast! Good luck and keep us posted.

IT SHOULD BE THE FUSE ....that same thing happen to me when i did the srt front end conversion on my touring 300.. the turn signals worked but wouldn't come on with the lights and my tails went out and only worked when i hit the brake (Check the *15* fuse in the front fuse box) and the (*25* fuse in the Rear fuse box) those might be the ones that are burnt out cause that's what i had to swap to get it corrected... hope this works out
