Default S2000 Ballast, Install .. How??

Hey Guys,

I've searched and looked over the 25 page HID thread and I still can't find any answers. I've purchased S2000 Ballasts and HID's and want to know how do I hook them up to the stock headlights.

I know I will lose my high beams (00 Civic - dual filament bulb).
I had S2000 projectors coming next week, so im preparation to do the retro fit I'm concentrating on wiring it up.

See pictures below ..





<U>Questions</U>

1. The Ballast has 3 connections, 1 is for the HID bulb, the other plastic clip I'm assuming is a power/ground and the other one - I got no idea?

2. The stock headlight plug is a 3 tooth connector, I don't know if the sell some kind of wiring kit so I can connect it to the ballast?

3. Do I have to wire in some inline fuse (20A)?

4. Do most people cut into the existing headlight wires?

Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks.

your stock headlight bulb is 3 wire
ground/low/high
use the ground and low

wire it up to a relay, have the relay pull power straight off the battery
that way your not pulling so much power from the stock wiring harness
also I put an inline fuse for each ballast, that way if one fuse blows i should still have one headlight working

im guessing for the ballast, black is ground, and white is power

I just hooked up an 02 Acura RL HID kit straight up to my stock harness. Have had no problems yet.

im not sure on the wiring since all ive ever dealt with were philips ballasts with the simple power/ground wires.. but im sure it wont be hard to figure out.. im actually doing a retro this weekend on my dads 02 tacoma, we're putting in 2003 Lexus RX330 projectors.. and shortly after, i will be retroing a set of s2k projectors on my STi.. if you can get another set of s2000 projectors, let me know.. even though i have a set already, i will buy any set of s2k's i can get my hands on
