Hey all- I bought a 2009 a few weeks ago that had HID headlights already installed. Since owning the jeep, there has been on occasion where one of the headlights would shut off while driving. This morning, one headlight never came on, and then the other would shut off after about 60 seconds leaving me with no lights. I would turn the headlights off and then back on and one would turn back on. When I turn the lights on, the one that won't come on, kinda attempts to turn on but quickly shuts off. Also my speakers make a quick buzz sound when I turn my headlights on. Could it be something with the ground?

Ok, so finally got to take apart the headlights on the jeep and figured out the problem only to run into another problem...
Switched the bulbs and the one bulb lights up on both sides. The other bulb just flickers on/off quickly. Here is the issue with the faulty bulb I presume....



My next question is where in the world do I locate a replacement? I really don't mind switching both bulbs of I have to, but there is no markings anywhere on this HID kit and I have cruised eBay with no luck on a matching bulb. It looks as though I would need to replace the entire unit, as the bulb does not come out like a normal one does.....

You have a picture of the housing where the bulb goes?

Thats just an H13 HID bulb. Any will do as long as they have the high beam functionality ( that small D shaped harness).

Or you can talk to us about getting a proper set of projectors!
Just ordered a set off of eBay. Will give the replacements a shot and if they don't work, I will hit you up!
