    7 Inch LED sealed beam headlamp with white / amber or RGB halo ring Installation

     

  • STEP 1: REMOVAL OF FACTORY (EXISTING) HEADLAMPS

    The Jeep headlamp removal requires that the grille be removed first.

    A.To remove the grille:

    Open the hood; along the top of the grille where it meets the shroud, remove all the plastic clips.

  • B.Gently pull the top of the grille outward, away from the car. Reach down and release the parking lamp bulbs and holders,by turning them a quarter‐turn. Keep them attached to the wire harness, and place them where they will not be damaged. (They can be left to hang in the opening between the bumper and the body of the Jeep)

  • C.The bottom of the grille is held in place by clips. Gently pull on the bottom of the grille until the clips disengage;remove the grille from the car and put aside in a safe place.

  • D.To remove the headlamps:
  • a. Remove the metal bezel ring, which is held in place with 4 screws. Use a T‐15 Torx bit/screwdriver.
  • b. As the last screw is removed, hold onto the headlamp, as it could fall.
  • c. Remove the bulb from the assembly with a ¼ turn, remove the headlamp assembly from the car and put it in a safe place. Unplug the factory harness from the bulb.
  • d. Proceed to Step 2, Method A OR Method B.
  • STEP 2: MAKING THE DRL LIGHT ELECTRICAL CONNECTION

    The procedure below results in the DRL illuminating WHITE whenever the key is “on” (DRL function). Should you desire different functionality, you would alter the connections as necessary. Below are two recommended methods for making these connections.

  •  

    • Method A: Making the DRL connection at a 12V accessory socket.
    •  Method B: Making the DRL connection at the fuse box with an “add‐a‐fuse” connector.

    Method A: You may begin this step at either the driver or passenger side of the vehicle; we recommend the driver side so that the red wire has a shorter path to the driver’s side interior.

  • a. The red halo switchback wire illuminates the DRL, and it must be connected to a circuit which is “hot” with the ignition on.

  • b.Extend the red wire to the desired length for proper connection (in the photo below, we extended this wire by crimping on an additional length of red wire).

  • c. Pass this red wire through the headlight bezel opening, in order to avoid pinching it when the headlight assembly is installed.
  • CAUTION! Some Jeeps have TWO 12v accessory sockets, one hot with the key on, and one hot all the time. Select the one which is “on” only with the ignition on. If you select the one which is always hot, the DRL lights will never turn off, and you will drain the battery.

  • CAUTION! Modern (JK) Jeeps use multiplex (Canbus) wiring throughout the vehicle. You CANNOT randomly select a 12V under‐hood wire and splice into it without potentially disturbing the Canbus system.

  • d. Run the red wire through the firewall and under the dash. Access the wiring behind the 12V accessory socket. (You may need to view videos online to learn the proper way to remove the dash of your vehicle)

  • e.With the ignition on, using the multimeter/test lamp, probe the two wires to find the one which is hot with key on. Turn off the ignition.

  • f.Using a 3M Scotch‐Lok or similar, connect the red wire to that 12V accessory socket wire.

  • g. Using cable ties and/or electric tape, neatly secure the red wire along its travel path.

  • hRepeat the steps above for the other side of the vehicle. NOTE, however, that the 2nd red wire does not need to be routed into the interior; instead, route this red wire across the engine compartment, and connect it to the 1st red wire. Secure all wiring.

  •  

    i.Proceed to Step 3.

     

    Method B: You may begin this step at either the driver or passenger side of the vehicle; we recommend the passenger side so that the red wire has a shorter path to the engine compartment fuse box.

  • a. The red halo switchback wire illuminates the DRL, and it must be connected to a circuit which is “hot” with the ignition on.

  • b. Extend the red wire to the desired length for proper connection (in the photo below, we extended this wire by crimping on an additional length of red wire)

  • c. Pass this red wire through the headlight bezel opening, in order to avoid pinching it when the headlight assembly is installed.
  • d.Run the red wire along a path within the engine compartment that will end next to the fuse box. Leave plenty of slack in the wire until all connections are complete.
  • e.Once you have selected the proper fuse position, insert the fuses to your Add a Circuit as follows:
  • 1). With the blades of the Add a Circuit pointing down, the lower fuse receptacle is to be used for the existing fuse in your fuse box. Plug that fuse in the Add a Circuit.

    2). The upper fuse receptacle is to be used for the accessory you are adding. Plug that fuse in. For DRL function of a sealed beam headlight, a 10 AMP fuse is sufficient. But make sure that you use the correct fuse for the location you have selected.

    3). Plug the Add a Circuit into the selected fuse position.

  • f. TEMPORARILY connect the red wire to the Add a Circuit connector (use electrical tape), as you will NOT want to finalize (crimp) the connection until both headlights are installed and all functionality testing has confirmed that all connections are correct.

  • g. Repeat the steps above for the other side of the vehicle. NOTE, however, that the 2nd red wire does not need to be routed to the fuse box; instead, route this red wire across the engine compartment, and connect it to the 1st red wire. Secure all wiring.

    NOTE: It is important that lid fuse box lid can be closed completely. Once functionality has been confirmed,create a channel for the wire to pass through the fuse box wall without being pinched or the fuse box being compromised. The picture below shows the completed wire passing through the fuse box (red box). This channel was created using a triangular file.

  • h. Proceed to Step 3.

  • STEP 3: MAKING THE TURN SIGNAL ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS

     

  • The procedure below results in each halo ring blinking AMBER with its respective turn signal. Should you desire different functionality, you would alter the connections as necessary.

    a.Extend the green halo switchback wire by attaching additional length wire to it as necessary. In the photo below, we crimped an additional length of black wire onto the green wire.

  • b.Ensure that this green/black wire passes through the headlight bezel opening. This is to prevent pinching of the wires during the headlight re-installation.

  • c.This green/black wire needs to be connected to the corresponding signal wire. In order to do this:
    1. Turn on the ignition;
    2. Operate the turn signal for the side of the car where you are working.

     dUsing a multimeter or test lamp:

  • Ⅰ. Probe the wires at the turn signal bulb socket; the correct wire to tap into will vary from year to year, be sure to test each wire until you find the correct one.

  • Ⅱ.The correct wire will alternate between 12V and 0V as the signal flashes on and off when using a multimeter. If using a test light, it will flash with the turn signal when you have the correct wire.

  •  

    Ⅲ. Once you have correctly identified the wire, turn off the ignition.

e.Splice this green/black wire into the vehicle’s turn signal wire, using a 3M Scotch‐Lok or similar. Securely insulate the splice with electrical tape.

STEP 4: MAKING THE HEADLAMP ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS

 

  1. Working at one side of the car at a time, begin at the vehicle’s factory headlamp harness. Take the headlamp plug‐n‐play connector from the LED headlight kit, and plug it into the factory connector.
  2. Take the kit’s LED‐Canbus wiring connector and plug its male end into the female end of the headlamp plug‐n‐play connector.

NOTE: During Steps c. and d. below, take care to ensure that the headlamp does not drop.

  1. Plug the female end of the LED‐Canbus wiring connector into the plug on the headlamp assembly.
  2. Carefully route all wiring through the headlamp bezel opening. Take your time and do not force the wiring, there is ample room for all the wires. Use cable ties to neatly secure all wiring. Install the LED headlamp in place by reattaching the bezel ring.
  3. Repeat Steps a.‐d. above for the other side.
  4. Test all lights: low beam, high beam, DRL, turn signals.
  5. If you used Method B in Step 2, go back and make final crimp of wiring at Add‐a‐Fuse plug.
  6. Reinstall any panels which were removed during wiring installation.
  7. Reinstall turn signal bulbs into grille.
  8. Reinstall grille onto vehicle.

 

4 Inch Fog Lamp Installation

The Jeep JK Wrangler fog light removal requires that the grille be removed fi­rst.

STEP 1: Removal of factory (existing) fog lights

A,To remove the grille: open the hood; along the top of the grille where it meets the shroud, remove all the plastic clips.

B,Gently pull the top of the grille outward, away from the car. Reach down and release the parking lamp bulbs and holders, by turning them a quarter-turn. Keep them attached to the wire

harness, and place them where they will not be damaged (They can be left to hang in the

opening between the bumper and the body of the Jeep)

C,The bottom of the grille is held in place by clips. Gently pull on the bottom of the grille until the

clips disengage; remove the grille from the car and put aside in a safe place.

D,To remove the fi­ller panel behind the front bumper:Remove the 2 Philips head screws at the panel ends.

 Push the panel forward, slightly under the front bumper, then pick up the panel from its back

end, and remove it from the vehicle.

E,To remove the fog lamps:

Remove the 4 Philips head screws holding each fog lamp assembly in place.

Save these screws as they will be used to install the new Lumen fog lamps.

Disconnect the wiring connector at the back of the fog light.

STEP 2: Making the fog light electrical connections

The installation method below does not permanently alter the vehicle, and allows you to revert back to the factory lamps, if so desired. Should you want a di‑erent installation method, you would alter these directions accordingly.

A,Identify the fog light wiring:

  1. Using a 12V test light or multimeter, identify which of the 2 fog light wires is “hot”, and which is ground.
  2. On the Lumen fog light, the BROWN wire is “hot”, and the BLUE wire is ground.
  3. Using the connection method of your choice, connect the brown wire from the fog lamp to the “hot” wire at the vehicle’s fog lamp wiring; then connect the blue wire from the fog lamp to the factory fog lamp ground wire.

If your Lumen fog lights have the optional halo light, proceed to Step 3 below.

If your Lumen fog lights do not have the halo light, proceed to Step 4 below.

 

STEP 3: Making the halo light electrical connection

The procedure below results in the DRL halo illuminating WHITE whenever the key is “on” (DRL function).

Should you desire di‑erent functionality, you would alter the connections as necessary. Below are two recommended methods for making these connections.

  • Method A: Making the DRL connection at a 12V accessory socket.
  • Method B: Making the DRL connection at the fuse box with an “add-a fuse“ connector.

Method A

You may begin this step at either the driver or passenger side of the vehicle; we recommend the

driver side so that the wire has a shorter path to the driver’s side interior.

  1. The YELLOW wire from the fog light assembly illuminates the DRL, and it must be connected to a circuit which is “hot” with the ignition on. Extend the yellow wire to the desired length for proper connection.
  2. NOTE! In the image above, we have crimped a terminal onto the end of the YELLOW wire, and have extended its length using a red wire, also with a terminal crimped onto its end.

    Caution

    Some vehicles have TWO 12v accessory sockets, one hot with the key on, and one hot all the time. Select the one which is “on” only with the ignition on. If you select the one which is always hot, the DRL lights will never turn o‑, and you will drain the battery. 

In our 2007 Wrangler, the LEFT 12 socket is hot only with key on, so this is one we used. The RIGHT socket is hot at all times.

Caution

Modern Chrysler Corporation vehicles use multiplex (Canbus) wiring throughout the vehicle. You

CANNOT randomly select a 12V under-hood wire and splice into it without potentially disturbing the Canbus system.

3. Run the yellow wire through the ­rewall and under the dash. Access the wiring behind the 12V

4. accessory socket. (You may need to view videos online to learn the proper way to remove the dash of your vehicle)

5. With the ignition on, using the multimeter/test lamp, probe the two wires to ­nd the one which is hot with key on. Turn o‑ the ignition.

6. Using a 3M Scotch-Lok or similar, connect the yellow wire to that 12V accessory socket wire.

7. Using cable ties and/or electric tape, neatly secure the yellow wire along its travel path. 

8. Repeat the steps above for the other side of the vehicle. NOTE, however, that the 2nd yellow wire does not need to be routed into the interior; instead, route this red wire across the engine compartment, and connect it to the 1st red wire. Tape up and secure all wiring.

9. Proceed to Step 4.

Method B

You may begin this step at either the driver or passenger side of the vehicle; we recommend the passenger side so that the wire has a shorter path to the engine compartment fuse box.

 

Important!

If there is a fuse in your chosen fuse box location, move it to the lower fuse location in the

add-a-circuit. If no fuse is there, add one to the lower fuse location.

Caution

Please research which fuse position to use in order to properly wire your lighting accessory.

Choosing the wrong location could result in major electrical issues.

A.The yellow wire from the headlamp assembly plug illuminates the DRL, and it must be connected to a circuit which is hot with the ignition on. Extend the yellow wire to the desired length for proper connection.

NOTE! In the image above, we have crimped a terminal onto the end of the YELLOW wire, and have extended its length using a red wire, also with a terminal crimped onto its end.

B.Run the yellow wire along a path within the engine compartment that will end next to the fuse box. Leave plenty of slack in the wire until all connections are complete.

C.Once you have selected the proper fuse position, insert the fuses to your Add a Circuit as follows:

  1. With the blades of the Add a Circuit pointing down, the lower fuse receptacle is to be used for the existing fuse in your fuse box. Plug that fuse in the Add a Circuit.
  2. The upper fuse receptacle is to be used for the accessory you are adding. Plug that fuse in. For DRL function, a 10 AMP fuse is sucient. But make sure that you use the correct fuse for the location you have selected.
  3. Plug the Add a Circuit into the selected fuse position.

D.TEMPORARILY connect the yellow wire to the Add a Circuit connector (use electrical tape), as you will NOT want to ­nalize (crimp) the connection until both fog lights are installed and all functionality testing has con­rmed that all connections are correct.

E,Repeat the steps above for the other side of the vehicle. NOTE, however, that the 2nd yellow wire does not need to be routed into the fuse box; instead, route this yellow wire across the engine compartment, and connect it to the 1st red wire. Tape up and secure all wiring.

NOTE: It is important that lid fuse box lid can be closed completely. Once functionality has been confirmed, create a channel for the wire to pass through the fuse box wall without being pinched or the fuse box being compromised. The picture below shows the completed wire passing through the fuse box (red box). This channel was created using a triangular file.

F.Proceed to Step 4.

STEP 4: Completing the fog light installation

  1. Secure all wiring as necessary, using cable ties and/or electrical tape.
  2. Before installing the fog lights in the bumper, perform a full function test of the fog lights and if applicable, the DRL halo lights.
  3. Once you have determined that all lights function correctly, if you used Method B in Step 3, go back and make ­nal crimp of wiring at Add-a-Fuse plug.
  4. Reinstall any panels which were removed during wiring installation.
  5. Reinstall the ­ller panel behind the front bumper.
  6. Reinstall turn signal bulbs into grille.
  7. Reinstall grille onto vehicle.
