1st time HID install in a jeep, had problems.
Tried putting in a set for a friend last week. Hooked up everything plug and play as usual. I did not install the relay first just the ballast and warning canceler. Turned it in to test first light and nothing. Figured maybe it has to have a complete circuit to work so installed the same on the next light, and nothing. So we then noticed that 4 or so lights were on in the dash. Abs, check engine, seatbelts, said check suspension in cluster, windows didn't work, etc. so we checked the fuses and had 2 blown. So I just said let me do some research as to why and what to do before we finish.
So here it is! I have 2 sets, 2 cancelers, and 2 relays. I believe I saw that some jeeps are reverse polarity, is this true? If it is do I just turn the harness around backwards and plug it in? What's the best way to check to make sure? I've also seen people talking about resistors and diodes. What this about?
Sorry for all the questions but I'm use to it just working, not blowing fuses, and throwing codes. I've also looked on some websites like this one and others and just can't find the definite answers I need. Thanks ahead of time!
