Question Standard Headlight to JDM (Non-HID) Headlight

does it requires some mods? from the way i see it.
the standard headlight has 3 wires, signal light, dimmer light & head lights combines with the High beam....
the JDM (Non-HID) has 4 wires, signal light, dimmer light, head lights and the high beam which is not connected..

wrx2sti,

You've got it all wrong.

Standard headlight has 2 plugs:
1 9007(3-wire) for the HI/Lo beam and
1 Generic plug for the blinker.

"JDM" Non-HID headlights (and JDM HID headlights) have 3 plugs:
1 9005(2 wire) For the high beam
1 H1(2 wire) for the low beam
1 Generic plug for the blinker.(same as stock)

The High beam and the Low beam on the "JDM" lights need to share a common ground from the 9007 plug coming from the car. Then they use their individual power wires from the 9007 plug for their power connection.

oh, ok... thanks for that.. i took off my head light off the car.. and found 3. one more is the small light (parking light).

from what i found again. the jdm headlight, the highbeam and the parking lights are in the same place(u noe what i mean, share the same reflector) then the low beam, then the turn light.

ok.. from the link, really gave me a idea..

thanks.. ya all... for the great help, advice and corrections.

merry christmas & have a wonderful upcoming new year..
