Default HID Problems


I installed the SDX Bi-Xenon HID 6000k to my 2007 ford f150. After install
I noticed a weaker fog lamps and my horn is very weak. Upon further review,
I saw that when I pushed my horn on the steering wheel, the fog lamps would
turn off, my turn signal on my passenger mirror would go off and on my dash
the turn right icon and high beam icon would show. What could cause this

It sounds like you removed a ground for those circuits.

The HID installation should only have attached a power wire to the battery for the relay, and a ground for the relay. The HID gets it's "on" signal from the existing headlight connector.

Check for some wire that you may have removed but not reconnected, like a ground location you may have removed but didn't reconnect.
