    Shark eyes help (headlights)

    got a problem with them ,ive bought HID's from PVS and some Shark eyes from PVS

    ive put them in and wired them up with thanks to 5w4nny

    but i got a problem, when i turn on the main beam ( should be HID ) the full beam comes on instead
    and then i pull for the full beam the main beam ( should be HID ) comes on

    ive tried lookin at the clips to each lightbut they dont fit if you swap them arround or a least i dont think they do??

    any ideas?

    only sounds to me like they must be wired the wrong way around?

    with the sharkeyes the wiring from the car plugs into another set which goes to the bulbs does it not? are you sure one of these connections aren't the wrong way around?

    yes sorry plugging the wrong one in, iirc the main beam and the dipped beam use very similar plugs with the clips being in slightly different positions which could be miss placed,

    i would just double check everything, and if worst comes to worst and it is the lights that are wrong you will just need to swap the wires,

    ive checed, ive got a yellow and black plug from the main beam one

    and a white and black one from the ull beam plug

    and at the moment the blac and white connects to the other blac and white and the yellow and black connects to the other yellow and black

    so in all honesty now, i think they are all wrong and needs to be swapped round yellow and black to white and black?

    but wouldnt that be bad for the lights?

    Headlights and main beam use the same connectors just in different colours

    no mate, on one of the connecters theres light 1 grove which matches the other clip and on the other one thats 2 groves... perhaps they was just made incorrectly?

    Sorry the main beam/ full beam talk is confussing me as I see them as the same light. It's the headlight and the main beam

    So the HID and bulb fits the correct part it's just the wiring thats the issue? I know on the wiring they both plugged into each other easy enough as I got them the wrong way round at first on my angel eye's

    by main i mean the ones that have the HIDS in mate, they have there own clip/connector, but when there conected to that one they come on on the full beam, and they not fit on that connector for the main beam bit mate?so would i need to cut the clips off and rewire them?
