Dear Nitro North Norway

I did not first respond since I thought you had added just the H.I.D. bulbs and not the whole headlamp assemblies as I did. Just replacing the bulbs has been an issue for some and did require some modifications to work. As far as adding the complete headlamp assemblies as I did they should be just plug-n-play. Same wiring harness and same plugs using the same switch! NO MODIFICATIONS ARE REQUIRED (at least on the Nitro USA vehicles).

It sounds like you may have a overload. If you unplug one lamp when in operation does this allow the other lamp to stay on and operate correctly?

Dear Nitro North Norway

Your Lamps:

2 SET HID 07+ DODGE NITRO CCFL HALO PROJECTOR HEADLIGHT: eBay Motors (item 360299500559 end time Oct-10-10 13:08:49 PDT)


My Lamps:

http://www.carid.com/2007-dodge-nitro-headlights/cg-ccfl-halo-led-projector-headlights-258704.html
low T-5 55W
T-3 ½ hi beam bulb 55W
Projector Headlights are completely DOT compliant.

In reviewing the two light sets they do look the same but look to use different bulbs and yours do not state they are DOT compliant. I suspect that may be the issue. Since they are guaranteed 1 year (mine 2) they need to correct or return as defective.

Will do some checking for you as to what you can do and will reply later.

How about a Powder blue. Be a nice contrast to the darker blue. NOT black.
