rangers484 Nice looking lights. I bought this set off Ebay for my Coupe. Swapped out the incandescent turn signal bulb for LED turn signals and had to add the error cancelling resistors. Added LED tail lights as well.

Vsx1 I had the same issue. The capacitor is installed backwards. Flip the connectors/wiring and the relay should stop buzzing and everything should work.

Chaunceyhazel Hey you guys I have a 2013 Hyundai Elantra that I had for almost a year I been trying to get hids in it for a while to the point where I said forget it but I still want them I ordered the hid kit and even the relay still at first they would shut off at start up then after the relay it would buzz the whole time...someone one please help me

andreww88 Oh okay, makes sense about the voltage now. Thanks for the info! Hope I don't have a bad bulb. I ordered them on eBay. They were a lot cheaper than PrecisionLED. That site is super expensive!

Vsx1 If you have just bulbs (no ballasts) then you may have a bad bulb. The signal/power to the bulbs should be the same on both sides. Switching sides should verify that.
As for being brighter using the high beam, they are. The DRL system (on most vehicles) is the high beam bulb using less voltage and are dimmer as a result. The DRL system runs on maybe 6V as opposed to the high beams at 12V or 14.4V. Same "filaments", more voltage. When you turn on the high beams, you just switching to the higher voltage. Some cars do have bulbs with 2 filaments but not the Elantra.

andreww88 Okay, I will check the install. I've been really busy and just left them alone for now. I mainly use them for DRLs anyways. I don't have ballasts for the LED bulbs, its just the bulb itself. I will try swapping the bulbs soon and let you know. The LEDs definitely aren't as bright as HIDs or even regular halogens but they still look cool. I noticed when the high beams are on they are brighter than when they are DRL so I guess they have different "filaments" to like my factory bulbs? I'll post pics soon!

Vsx1 Double check the install. Check the signal lights too. Try swapping the LED ballasts to see what happens. if the blinking changes sides, it might be the ballast, if not, swap the bulbs or contact the supplier and inquire. The pulse encoded in the power voltage is a higher frequency, say 100 Hz, so a turn signal rate seems odd. Good luck and keep us posted.

Don't forget to post pics!

andreww88 Okay, so I ordered LED high beam bulbs and put them in today. They look great and work great when on DRL. However, when I turn them on high beams, the driver side one blinks (almost like a turn signal). The HID low beams stay on with the high beam lights too, which is great. I don't remember them staying on before but maybe they did. Does anyone know why one of those LEDs blinks on the driver side? Should I swap the bulbs to rule out if it blinks with the one thats on the passenger side?

I removed my high-beam HID system (one of the ballasts failed anyway, refunded under warranty) and replaced them w/ LED bulbs (non ballasted) from PrecisionLED.
Using the LEDs as high-beam bulbs allows for them to be used an daytime running lights (DRL) in addition to high-beams (admittedly not bright enough) without the time delay nor the blinding of using a ballasted system.
I was actually worried about that. I'm going to see if they will just return them instead of exchange them and I'll look into those LEDs. Thanks!
