    fk angel eyes fitting guide/help

    Hi everyone, i've just brought some angel eyes for my astra mk4 but i cant get the halo lights to work. The main and dipped lights are working fine but the halos wont even light on. i've connected it to the battery but nothing. My dad said the fuse was ok so does any one have any ideas. Also is there a guide to fit them.
    Thanks

    i take it you have checked that bulbs are fitted? Sorry to insult ur intelligence by asking but u never know!

    once established that bulbs are fitted in the halos then id be checking for continuity in both the lights and the car loom. Double check the fuses too just in case

    oh and 1 more thing...Welcomt to Astra Sport!

    What car do u drive? Pics always welcome

    Thanks . I drive a 1.6 16v astra club. Ive got pics to post up but i need to try and fix the halos as there driving me mad. I went to put in my old blue 501's from my old headlights and i saw that they had bulbs already in them. They were sliver so i thought they were the correct ones. Also what is the relay box on the end for?? can i put that anywhere

    Do you know if the halo's are LED's or normal bulbs?

    If they are LED's they only work one way round so might need the + and - swapping round

    If the are FK angel eyes the relay box isn't needed

    the relay box is not needed so i can put it anywhere in the engine bay as thats whats connecting all the wires for both headlights together. I dont know if there leds or normal bulbs as they looked like my old 501's. The bit that confused me was the parking connecter. the relay has three wires coming out of it: 1 goes to the battery( - and +) which i've done. then it has one wire that has one clip to connect to 1 headlight and the last wire has two clips coming out. This is very confusing to me lol

    to put it bluntly - bollocks to the relay! Im not aware of any mk4s that run a relay on FK angels. Mine (like so many others) work perfectly without it - bin it and make life simpler for yourself.

    yea just connect the two grey clips together and they work stright away. Dont use that big cable with the realy as the kind ppl above staed as its not needed. Just make sure they are the plugs are in correctly i.e. parking light to parking light etc..
