I put a HID conversion kit on my 03 wrx and i cannot get my fog lights to work because my high beam indicator refuses to turn off. Any help? Thanks

Have you tried putting the regular proper halogen bulbs back in and see if they work?

I thought people know by now that the electrical and lighting forum will refuse to help HID kit people...

The harness is probably wired for a 9004 plug. The wiring pinnout is different. There are two wires you need to switch in the plug. I'll let you google search for the pinnouts for both and figure out the two that need switched. This is as far as I will go to help you blind oncoming traffic with your dangerous lights.

I hate people who do this without projectors. Then even more when they wornt search. HID is ment to be a cheap mod so you can blind everyone and give them the wrong impression of what the setup should be if correctly used. If it was ment to be cheap every car would have it.

For mr noob. The oem wire harness has low beam and high beam in the same harness. You must split this with an adaptor. Yes you wont have high beam with one of these kits unless you do a bi-hid setup. So check your wiring if your going to blind people with this kit.

Try the fx35 or have it done by LightWerkz. There are step by step instructions on another thread for the fx35. Parts can be found on ebay. Just bought my tsx projectors.

What would you think of buying a pair of Hella aux lights? (not the fog ones, you need something with a long reach). They saved me from a collision with a deer more than once, and they're legal...
