JDP Halo Kit - Not Turning On!!

Ok Fellow Camaro5ers,

I have the JDP Halo Kit on my Camaro with some added on RGB Grille & Undercarriage lighting attached. For the wiring into the engine bay fuse box, I have one wire with 5amp + 7.5amp and for the other wire I have a 20amp + 7.5amp.
Lights were working fine.....

My car was in the SA Autorama this past weekend, an indoor car show. One of the regulations was that we had to disconnect our batteries. The car was at the Show from Friday, March 14th, until Sunday, March 16th.

When the battery was re-connected, the Halos and Lighting would not come on! I have tried replacing all of the fuses and went through the procedure to reset the RF controller, but still unable to get the lights to come on.

Have any of you run into this situation and is there anything else I need to check?
Your help is greatly appreciated.

Mine have become very unreliable to the point where I don't even use them. Night Owl upgrade soon to come.

I've had a remote stop responding all together which they replaced and also had the control unit sent back and fixed due to mismatching colors.

Have you reprogrammed the remote? Put the button on the side kick plate inside the drivers compartment to the middle position, hold the up and down buttons on the remote down at the same time for 10 secs and while holding them and after about 10 sec's flip the button inside the car on the kick plate to the on position. The light halos should flicker and you an release the buttons on the remote. Should work...... if that doesn't do it, I don't know...

Thanks! I'll give that a try.

Yea well we're standing by. It only takes a few seconds to do and I'm curious. Disconnecting the battery really shouldn't cause all these issues and replacing fuses and all that from just a battery disconnect seems like overkill but I do understand when your stuff isn't working properly.

Didn't work...Bummer! I'm trying to remember if there was a ground wire somewhere. Appreciate the help....I'll keep trying for a fix.

Only ground I recall is the one on the front bumper frame rail crossmember at the horn. Not sure or don't recall one inside and you should be plugged in to pwr within the fuse box. It's got to be something simple since all you did was a battery disconnect.

Jeremy (JDP) responded to my PM and basically asked me to test the fuse box in the engine bay to make sure there was nothing wrong. I haven't had a chance to do that yet, but a strange thing occurred this morning when I got to work. I got out of the car and noticed that the Halos were on (blue color), but not the grille and undercarriage lights that are hooked into the Halos. I opened up the hood and noticed that the toggle switch was in the "OFF" position, but the LED indicator was lit up (red). When I toggled the switch to the "ON" position, the Halos would turn off. I tried going through the reset procedure for the RF Controller, but still no go. This is strange! There's something definite that I need to check/trace. Hopefully, I'll get my lights working again.

I'd eliminate the extra shiggady you tapped into the JDP lights, make sure they work as they're suppose to do and then go from there of hooking up the rest.

Well, this issue is still on-going. The latest response from JDP is that we may be looking at my RF Controller crapping out. Does anyone know where I can order another controller from, other than the obvious with JDP themselves. I'm waiting for Jeremy to let me know if he can send me another controller.

I think that's what was wrong with mine. I noticed at the first Camarofest here back in 2012 my lights did not do what their demo car was doing and I brought it to their attention and they ended up giving me the box from another kit which solved my issue. In essence I had functions that just didn't work. I had the basic color changes and the 3 and 7 color jump and flash but no auto and no random.
They were unable to remove the bad box and asked me to send it to them when I got the time but since then I traded that car with the lights and when I was going to try to remove the box I was told they have a new box by another vendor and it wasn't needed. I have the lights on my new car and it's a none issue, they work perfect but what's weird is that yours worked fine until you disconnected prior to that show you were in so I'm not so sure what's going on with yours......

turn the inside switch off or to the middle position, then push and hold the up and down buttons on the remote at the same time. When you do this you should see a flash from the halos. Keep hold those buttons down for about 10 secs and then turn the switch to the on position and that is the position that allows them to come on with ignition and then release the buttons on the remote.

Not having the remote in front of me, I'm referring to the two buttons on the upper left of the remote. They may be the up and down buttons but yes, they are white. Push and hold them down at the same time and then turn the switch to the off position, wait 10 sec's and then push the switch into the ignition position while continuing to hold the buttons down and then release. The RF box is now reprogrammed.
