Xenon-Vision Bi-Xenon HID Install
Here are a few things to keep in mind:
1. There is NO need to disable the Daytime Running Light (DRL) module if
you have the Bi-Xenon HID kit. The reason being that the DRLs will run off
the low beam and will not flicker as I initially thought. If you have the
non-Bi-Xenon (no HID hi-beam), then you WILL have to disable the DRLs (from
what I understand).
2. If you happened to have disable the DRLs, it is likely that your
interior dome light will not work, as was my experience. No idea why the
DRL module is connected to the dome light but I'm not a Toyota engineer.
3. There are two things that look like grounding wires in the kit ... they
actually are not. They are connected to the battery terminals. The wire
coming from the two fuses go to the POSITIVE terminal while the wire coming
off the control unit go to the NEGATIVE terminal. I unscrewed the nut that
helps tighten the clamp around the battery and then placed the wire in
between the clamp and the nut.
4. The clips only fit one way except for the one on the ballast. You will
see in the video how they should connect but the red wire should go to the
5. There is a metal bar in the front of the car with holes in it. Run the
wiring through that to ensure that the wires don't melt on the radiator or
get caught in the fan (that would be bad news!).
6. Lay your wires out to get a sense of how things connect together.
7. It is normal to have one of the original headlight wiring harness not
All in all, the install is very easy. I did it in about an hour and a half
but if I knew what I just wrote above, it probably would have taken 30
Hope this help anyone that is installing the Bi-Xenon kit in their Yaris!
If you have any questions, please quote this post and I will do my best to
answer them for you. Cheers

How to Install an HID Kit from Beginning to End
These are step-by-step instructions on how to install an HID Kit. This
video covers what to check for when you receive your HID Kit, how to
properly disconnect your OEM Headlights prior to install, disconnect your
OEM halogens, wire the HID Kit harness to the factory headlight harness
without cutting or splicing any wires, securely mount the HID ballasts and
shows a HID Kit installed and fully functional.
HID Xenon Headlight Electrical Retrofit
HID Xenon Headlight Electrical Retrofit
Does triggering relays directly from headlight connector, harm the
The answer is yes. Activating relays is done by connecting voltage to a
coil, which in turn creates a magnetic field. When voltage is removed from
the relay, the energy that is stored in the coil collapses, and will send
current the other way, by increasing voltage to several hundred volts. A
small arc will be visible between the contact elements of the headlight
switch. Over time, the switch will only work intermittently, and will
eventually fail. That's why a serial diode is essential to protect the
Here's the current path to a properly connected H.I.D. retrofit electrical
The heart of most of the electrical work is at the H.I.D. relay. The relay,
the most common is a Bosch type, has 5 terminals, of which 4 are of
interest to you.
Terminals 84 and 85, sometimes labeled 85 and 86, is the relay coil.
Remember to install an in line diode between these two terminals. Most
newer relays have this diode internally. As we've said before, the diode
protects the headlight switch from damage due to arching.
Shown in this video, terminal 84 is connected to ground. You may connect
either of the relay coil terminals to ground. This is the activation

Headlight lens restoration using regular toothpaste is real. It doesn't
take much effort, but the type or brand of toothpaste does make a
difference. Watch to see the results i came up with.
How to Install HID Kit if designed without plugs
By http://www.mydepots.com --Lots of HID kits are designed without plugs,
like Type H1 H3 H3C H4-1 H7 H7R H7T H8 H9 H10 H11 H13-1 H13-2 880 5202
Well we can still find particular introduction to them and their connection
position in manual .
These plugs are not designed as Type 9007 since different cars are always
with disparate jack figure.
Usually, HID headlight kit can work in normal when we insert wires into
plugs on the car directly.
Then we use electrical tap to tie stock wire and plugs down.
Here we'll show you one of fixing ways, it's like shape of capital letter
