    Headlight question

    Just installed some HID lights on my 02 WRX. they work and all but here is my question.
    The HI/Lo doesn't work WHY? IT IS A Hi/Lo kit....
    the dash highbeam light stays on while lights are on WHY?
    Plus the Foglights no longer come on at all WHY?

    Thanks for any help on this matter in advance!

    Headlight question

    The sensible option is to remove the kit and use the correct 9007 bulbs.

    I suspect you'll want to retain the kit though. Therefore, search "DRL mod" and "fog light mod" for how-to threads. Bear in mind there is some sort of feedback nonetheless, so you may still have a (faint?) main beam indicator issue -- but not all cars exhibit this.

    So, you'll need the DRL mod at a minimum. Start there, see what happens, then explore the fog light mod. DIY threads exist on this forum; make sure you follow directions for your model.

    Thank you I found my problem and fixed it will be posting a post on the matter so everyone will see any HID will work correctly if the wires are in the proper places....wires were in wrong sockets.

    All those issues are occurring because I suspect you didn't do a legit retrofit...and did a cheap plug and play kit.
