So I recently installed these headlights, but for the life of me I can't get the halos to work. I tried the normal t tap install but I had to add some extra wire, since the ones that came on the lights were way too short. Could there be anything I did wrong? I only attempted the passenger side one and after hours of attempting it I gave up. Could it just be a bad light?

I also discovered that the halo wires were a bit short.

Sometimes when you use that type of T-Tap, you don't get a good connection. Often the metal portion of the T-tap is not sharp enough, or not small enough, to cut into the host wire. I ended up just splicing mine in completely with proper connectors, but I'm a big fan of overkill. You can just remove the T-tap, look at the connections and see if it actually connected properly.

If not, use a knife or other sharp instrument to pre-cut the wire before you reattach the T-tap, to ensure a good connection.

I doubt you received a bad light, as Eagle Eyes typically have above-par quality control, but it's possible.

Finally got it. I tried the fuse tap method first and it didn't work, tried it again and sure enough I had the fuse set in the wrong slot on the tap. Works like a charm now!

It's not as hard as it sounds. Follow this link. I did not see where he remove the bolt unearth the side maker but there was one on my 2014. If you look back in this thread you see were you just slice into the side lights. I believe it was black to black and brown to the color wires. I did a temp connection to test before I made permanent connection.

Looking for a little help. I installed these this weekend and they look great. Pics to follow. My question is the adjustment. What do the 3 screws on the rear of the light adjust? There is 1 inboard below the low beam, 1 is above the lights between the two bulbs, and 1 below the high beam inboard. What does each one do?

The one on the low beam is up/down. There is no side to side adjustment

I have not done the high beam, which has both a screw on top, and bottom. Assuming because it is a "spot" projector, it will do up down side side.

I do.. I ran 2 wires to the fuse box. I tried running just one. But it wasn't enough juice to light both halo sets. Running 2 wires directly 2 the fuse box. So now I can crank up. Turn off my Day time running lights. But the halos stay on.

I noticed that this headlights come with halogen bulbs for the projector lights. How do you guys upgrade it, any recommendation?
