2015 Chrysler 300 limited , i recently just purchased 6k hi and low beam w/ 55w ballast hids for my car . when i hooked them up and opened the door they turned on just fine so i figured they were good to go after mounting the ballasts. As soon as i turned my car on they shut off with no indicator light, i was "butt hurt" to say the least . they continued to turn on and immediately shut off in about ten second intervals, i had to remove the set up and reinstall the factory halogen bulbs. i contacted my local dodge Chrysler jeep and spoke to one of the technicians, he told me that in many cases the oem lighting harness on the halogen bulb set up simply cannot support the power necessary to power the after market 55w ballast set-up , and said maybe i could try some sort of relay harness to correct the issue, seeing how my set up didnt come with a relay harness, im stuck in my tracks.i dont know if this helped anyone, or possibly anybody has a for sure guarantee "fix" for this issue PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD HELP ME ..So I've seen a handful of threads about HID swap's in 300's - but not many for the 2015 model year. Thought it'd be a good idea to get a single thread going just for this model year - since I've seen a few reports of issues.
Please only chime in on this thread if you have experience with the swap on a 2015 300 only - thanks!
I have a 2015 300C with Halogen projectors.
I've ordered the Mopar Lowbeam kit from The Retrofit Source. This includes the relay harness with the capacitor link. Bulbs are 9012's and, because they have the "dust cap" (aka "internal") I will need to drill out a hole & use the pass-through connector.
I haven't done my install yet - but plan to this weekend. I know I've seen a few mentions of problems encountered - so hoping these are isolated incidents and not some sort of "issue" new to the 2015 model year 300.
In particular, user JROD696 - he used an HID kit from Third Gear Performance. He had random flickers on his 2015 300S - and the bulb eventually shut off. He returned them for a refund & then went the LED route & experienced the same issue. He's now waiting on some sort of "gen 2 ballast" that he was told should fix the problem.
User Pawelpuczko had a 9006 HID kit installed at a shop - and after 1 day - they wouldn't turn on. So he had them remove the kit.
Anyone else have any experience in HID changeout on a 2015 300? Please post who you got your kit from and what the results were. Thanks!
