It cost me an outrageous amount for one side of my car to be replaced, so I had to buy from an auto parts store. It holds up beautifully just like the original one did at a much lower price. I originally thought this wouldn't work for this price. Boy have I been proved wrong. My happiness with the purchase is due to its ease of installation, and its high quality. Thanks for reading
Update if you find this useful, please let me know. After the item failed to be delivered within a month, I contacted the seller who replied right away, but after several messages and them saying that a new one would be sent, I have yet to receive one. I tried to reach the seller again, but did not receive a response. Do not buy from them and go to somewhere else.
A bad bulb was thought to be the problem. There was a leak in the cap, causing moisture to enter the lamp. Previously, this control unit had been replaced.
The fit is perfect, and the function is accurate. It works well, except for the rubber seal ring around the connector, it isn't made with automotive grade high temperature I felt like the plastic was more like a rubber. Further, it did not cover the entire height of the connector area for which the OEM was responsible. A silicone sealant had to be applied to the connector neck to ensure that water would not penetrate into the.
Our escalade gets filled with water four or five times a year and we have to replace these parts. The dealer part, however, may also cost a lot more. The quality of the product is cheap, so it's a good deal.
As soon as it was opened, the product was working as it should. Sadly, I had to return it after a week because it failed. It was not a faulty product, but maybe the result of a set of circumstances. In May 2003, I installed the lamp with moisture in its lens and the ballast began to strobe after about a week. After about 3 weeks, the entire lamp stopped working. I could not spare the time to have the lens assembly repaired when I needed the lamp to operate. My concern was with the headlamp assembly and I recently replaced it with a new one to address it. I would probably buy this product again, but I would definitely reseal the lens assembly before installing the ballast.
It looks similar to the connector of an hid bulb, but it's The bulb harness is unable to connect properly to the original bulb.
One thing you need to do is drill a few tiny holes under your headlights to prevent water from going into your ballast. This will prevent them from blowing out again because they are highly likely to do so in the near future.
For the first month of use, it worked fine, but.
