|EMTJEEP||Check DDMtuning they have the wiring you need to make it not a read an open circuit and error eliminators.|

Since HIDs require much less amperage than halogens, you may be able to get by with adding capacitors to the factory harness, but I don't have a definitive answer.

You will also need capacitors and diodes to "defeat" the PWM voltage from the factory harness.
When I did the Cibie upgrade, I used the factory headlight harness to trigger. Since the TIPM doesn't get a return signal on the factory harness, it will set two trouble codes, one for each headlight. Will not cause a CEL or any other malfunction. You won't know they are there unless you scan for codes.

|thomm99||On every good Jeep forum the HID post has to come up. It's highly illegal, you will go to jail, and kittens will die. And using a relay kit works without any issue. Please remember to adjust your lights down a bit. Especially if you have a lift.|

Technically none of these options are legal as the Hella and Cibie headlights are a euro spec not a US spec.
There is an option for HID headlights that is done correctly. Rallylights.com has an HID projector kit that replaces your entire headlight housing. They have an odd look (kind of a bugeye thing) but supposedly work very well. They are also one of the more expensive options.

My understanding is that you cannot make this legal using the stock reflector. One example here.
Scroll at the very bottom of that web page.

NOTE: i intend to do my HIDs the legal way but before i can start my retrofit project i would like to know it can in fact be wired the right way.
i want to install the HID kit H13/9008, 5k color temp with a wire harness. i know the computer will sense an open circuit, can i eliminate this by installing a second wire harness also straight to the batt to close the circuit?? have anyone done this? i know i will have 2 extra sockets but i dont mind that.
has anyoine done this??
thanks in advance.
