Default help with headlight leveling switch plug

for those of u with the oem headlight leveling switch for jdm hid/uk bugeye projector lights... what are u using for a male plug (ie. harness side the plugs into the back)? i have this mickey mouse job with electrical tape and zip ties to keep things together, but whenever it have to pull the kickpanel out to do work it becomes a pain in the ass.

i've had no luck trying to find a jdm wreck where someone would just cut the plug for me. because i'm in canada we don't get the usdm 04 hid headlights, so i cannot find any info from the dealer if the male plug can be ordered. i'm worried that it can only be ordered as part of the dash harness

help?

I just used 6 female spade type connectors with some heatshrink around them. For the wires themselves I got a bundle of audio cable from radioshack that has 4 wires in one cable.

Its pretty clean and I have no problems with stuff coming unplugged or getting in the way.

that's pretty much what i have now. i used someone's recommendation to use a telephone cable and spade connectors, wrapped up in electrical tape at the end to form a crude plug. the zip tie was used to keep everything from falling apart when pulling the kickpanel.


ugh... oh well. i was hoping for something better than this

I have them, but I had to buy 100 of them to get the 4 that I need... damn minimums..

They're in toronto for 25USD a pair, delivered, or you can buy a complete harness and switch assembly from me.. I'll have them ready in about 2 weeks for 135USD delivered.

It took me 5 months to find them..

Hey, just saw your post about the leveling harness and i am very interested. is this just the harness to the back of the switch or will it run to the motors on the lights themselves? If not, how did you connect to the motor on the lights?

Your PM box is full! I'll be one of your first customers.


Just a suggestion for your harnesses: you may want to consider making it so that the harness from the leveling motors ends in pigtails and the switch also has pigtails. Although this requires the installer to solder/butt-connect the wires, this makes passing the wire through the firewall easier. And make sure the wires are color-coded!

Got back home.

The harnesses will be six wires passed thru the firewall, and you populate the plug. There will be detailed colour coded instructions on where to put the blue, where to put the green, etc in the plug. I leave the hooking up the ground to you, and I leave hooking up the 12V to you, but I'll give instructions.

Just assembling parts, and moving work around to have time to finish what I promise.
