Unhappy UPDATE: Removed “Halo” Headlamps

Update: Removed “Halo” Headlamps

Yes just 3 months and 1,500 miles my right "Halo" headlamp stopped working. As you should know these lamps are guaranteed for life so what went wrong? Upon removing the lamp it appears that the wires that connect to these glass rings have shorted out and are burnt. Ring is not cracked and it is receiving proper power. No other issues are present. Maybe I damaged this connection (very fragile) installing?

After seeing what was available as complete headlamp assemblies from our Site Sponsor Dodge Accessories & Parts I had already decided I would not repair these units if there was an issue in the future. Never expected it would be this soon, however!!!

I bought these “Halo” lamps deeply discounted, but let’s face it, they require a lot of time and labor to install. I was very detailed in the install, I believe. They are unique and attract much attention, but are labor intensive to install. They are very fragile in design and their wiring is too. A free replacement lamp or the offer, if installation is the cause of $39.00 for a replacement lamp, is not the issue. If I need to re-bake the housing to do another install after removing the Nitro grille and headlamp assembles is something I am unwilling to do again.

I have no issues at all with Advance Automotive Concepts who I bought these lights from directly. They were most supportive in any question I had during the install and Customer Service and fast, and shipping was great.

If you are interested in what I installed as a replacement and how the install went (plug n play?) I have again posted a complete picture review. Check Out These New Threads!

Colorshift halo headlight kit 2007-2012



Published on Dec 8, 2014

Get your kit today!
Flashtech: serious lighting technology...
Flashtech Dodge Nitro Fusion Colorshift V.3 Halos Headlight kit are the most advanced LED halo ever designed. They have a wide array of ways to be hooked up and can be modified in the future without having to buy new halos again and again. Your kit will come with LED rings and LED Drivers. Instead of having everything built into the ring as old halos were built, Flashtech has designed an external driver which allows this item to be mounted outside of the headlight. If a failure occurs a simple replacement of the driver will fix most problems rather than having to open up the headlights to replace a ring.

Flashtech Fusion Colorshift V.3 Halos will come with 4 wires on the back of each ring. This will allow you to hook them up as either single color RED, GREEN or BLUE . Each kit comes with a 24 key IR remote option that will make the full Colorshift Halos and will allow you to make a wide array of colors, including white, as well as blending and fade options. Make sure to check out the video of our Fusion Colorsfit Halos in action to see how you can make full use of them when paired with a wireless fusion remote.

Flashtech Headlight HALO Kits Include the Following

(2) 07-12 Dodge Nitro V.3 Fusion Colorshift Low Beam Halo Rings
(2) 07-12 Dodge Nitro V.3 Fusion Colorshift External LED DRIVERS
(1) 24 key IR Wireless RGB control Module
Complete Wiring install guide
Installation written Instructions
Everything you need to add Halos to your existing Headlights


*Look at fog light halo kits and brand new complete assemblies with flashtech halos preinstalled for this vehicle as well! Any controller to make halos flash or strobe are sold seperaty unless otherwise noted.
