  • To check illumination, temporarily install lamp in the vehicle. Be sure to connect power at the vehicle-side connector.
  • If the malfunction can be traced directly to the electrical system, first check for items such as blown fuses and fusible links, broken wires or loose connectors, pulled-out terminals, and improper connections.
  • Do not work with wet hands.
  • Using a tester for HID control unit circuit trouble diagnosis is prohibited.
  • Disassembling the HID control unit or harnesses (bulb socket harness, ballast harness) is prohibited.
