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!

answer them for you. Cheers

Headlight Restoration Kit - G1900
"I recently purchased the Headlight Restoration Kit, and all I can say is
WOW. I own a 1998 Mustang
GT. It's my daily driver. Here in Wisconsin, cars take a beating. The
headlights were in really bad shape. I tried another product that I found
in a hardware store and it didn't do much. I was contemplating buying new
headlight kits. I saw your ad in Autoweek, and watched the demo on your
website. I thought I'd give it a try. I am very pleased with the result.
The money I spent and the half hour of my time was worth it. I'll be
looking for some of your other products to help bring back the exterior
finish. If you have suggestions, I'm listening."

"I used your Headlight Restoration Kit and it worked really well. I had a
lot of build-up on my headlights and I am definitely impressed with how
well it worked. I had tried other products that hadn't worked and am
definitely impressed with yours. Thank you!"
