    Halo Headlight Trouble

    Hey folks I need your help yet again. I have a 2002 bug eye and installed a set of halo headlights that I bought off someone doing a build. I don't know what brand they are but they were wired real nice and plugged right up to the stock harness and have worked flawlessly, for awhile. They have the three LEDs, a low and high beam, and a halo ring around each low and each high beam. The only issue I am currently having is that one of the halos has gone out (on the high beam on the passenger side). I have researched on here as well as the internet in general and cannot find a solution to satisfy the problem (this includes looking for replacement LEDs and halos). I heard from one person online to buy some white or blue 3mm LEDs and install them in the halo ring itself, but I cannot find them in that size, at least not at Radioshack. Does anybody know what I should do to remedy this besides throwing my stock headlights back on? Thank you for the help.

    Don't know if those are the exact ones though since he sold them to me already wired and no packaging.

    Wow! Nobody has had any experience with the halo lights themselves before?

    So there is no way to replace the halo element itself? Would getting a whole new headlight be the only solution?

    I dont see why not but if I were you I would replace the Halos in both headlights while you have them off. I wouldnt buy one set only because if you dont know the exact brand they may be off color.

    are you sure its the the halo power inverter?

    Yes I planned on buying multiple colors for that very reason. These are like a blue / white. Typical color you see on the Audi and such for LEDs. What is the halo power inverter? Sorry this is my first time dealing with Halos for headlights.

    The power inverters are usually used with cold cathode halos LEDs shouldn't need them

    Honestly I'm not seeing an easy solution to this problem right off hand. I think I may be better off finding a new set of headlights, once these completly go out.
