Unhappy piaa lights

Hi all. I just purchased a set of Piaa 510 lights for my jeep. Wired them to the existing running light harness. (removed old lights with a new bumper) The lights do not work. The flash on, then turn off. Any idea's?

thanks

I would start by calling PIAA and explaining the issue. I'm sure that they have heard of a similar issue (flash on, then off) and should be able to give you ideas of where to check first.

If they flashed once then off, maybe you blew a fuse due to a short. Make sure all wiring is correct (not reversed, not exposed, all of the obvious things). If they flash on, then off everytime then this wouldn't be the case. Make sure all connections are seated correctly and the bulbs are correctly installed.

Go through all the most obvious things as it is usually something that was overlooked.

Those lights come with relays? You are probably overloading the relay from the stock light and/or blowing the fuse.
