oem halogen headlights to oem hid

Hello everyone, Several years ago I converted my oem halogen to oem hid with the help of a pre-made harness from projectoretrofits. The harness has quit working and I still have low beams however I no longer have high beam capability. Projectoretrofits is no longer in business. Are any of you aware of a pre-made harness I can purchase that will solve my high beam problem? Thanks for your help, Chuck

Why not check out your current harness and connectors with a Multimeter,probally a loose connection,should be an easy fix. Just my $02.

Also make sure your fog lights are not on. High beams will not work if the fog lights are on.

Hi DonJuan692006, I just sent Ron a message via my wife's Facebook. I really appreciate the information that you gave me. Thanks so much, Chuck

Who told you that? It's quite the opposite... your fog lights will turn off automatically when you use the high beams. The fog lights have no impact on your ability to use the high beams.

FOLLOW UP: I discovered that the retrofit source https://www.theretrofitsource.com/co...2009-2014.html has what I am looking for but requires some alteration. The charge is $ 80.00 shipped. The alteration requires changing some pins and is discussed on the web site. The description is as follows: This will convert an 2010-2012 Mustang from regular non-HID to factory HID BUT there is a wiring pin difference apparently from the F-150 to Mustang. On the F150, the grounding wires were on the number 3 pin. On the Mustang, the gounding pin needed to on the #2 on the headlight connection. So for anyone looking to use this wiring harness to convert a Mustang or just for TRS info, from looking at the headlight right side up, the Mustang went connection is in a row vertical. The connections go as follows.
Pin 1 - 12V
Pin 2 - Ground
Pin 3 - 12V
Pin 4 - High Beam Flapper
- The fit and finish of the wiring harness was perfect. It had a little extra wiring being that it was made for a F-150, but i figured that would be the case when I purchased this wiring harness.
- Connections were factory style and fit perfectly. All the connections were clearly labeled and made the installation a 5 minute install. Can not say enough good things about the wiring harness!
- This wiring WILL NOT convert a 2013-2014 Mustang headlight assembly. Connections are different on these headlights.
Do any of you members have a diagram to show me what they are talking about? Thanks for a reply, Chuck
