Default EDM leveling question,please help?

I have searched all the post's I could find about wiring my edm headlights so that I can level them from inside the car.

My question is my plug on the back of my lights for the motors on both lights is a 6 pin plug,from what I read the edm's should be a 4 pin plug,why is it 6 pins on mine?

Yes they are true edm as they have the DOT stamp & the light output is to the right _//_//.

Please if you have wired these up help,lol

I need to know what switch to order & how to wire them.


Thanksfor your time.

The EDM sti lights require the 6-pin levelling switch. CC-b sells them. http://www.cc-b.com/Merchant2/mercha...gory_Code=SI02

FWIW, my JDM projectors have the "DOT" marking on the lenses as well. Both do.

Like seven said, EDMs use the six pin setup.

I don't mind making the harness. I've actually got connectors for mine. I just need the correct pinouts.

I think with all the info I found in these threads, I'll probably be able to test the entire circuit this weekend and verify which pins do what, and create a diagram to make my harness.

I just re-read my post, and it might have been misleading. I don't mind fabbing up a harness for my lights. It'd be kind of hard to do one for yours because it's different, but I can try and help you get all the pins identified, so you can wire it yourself.

Hi guys -- my familiarity is with the EDM 4-pin switch, which *should* incidentally, correspond to a 3-wire connection on the headlight. Here's my writeup on it in this thread:
my write-up on how I successfully wired up my orciari's and my take on how the EDM 4-pin switch/3-wire levelling system works:
http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...velling+switch

For the JDM 6-pin switch, there have been various write-ups in the past, and I think a board member (wagons ho, IIRC) even has a plug-and-play harness available using OEM connectors (to which he had to go to great pains to source I believe). For this information, check the following threads:

some JDM 6 pin pinout -- but not sure if it is confirmed?

OK, all done... 4 hours later. Took the time to remove the drivers side fender to route the harness I made for a cleaner install. I used the USDM 6 pin switch on my 6 pin STi EDM's and worked like a champ!!!!
