I have a 2005 Lexus Rx330 with HID AFS headlight. My passenger side light went out. I thought the bulb burnt out, so I bought a new bulb. After replacing the new bulb, it happened exactly like my old bulb. It light up lightly and then total black out. What's wrong with it? I thought the ballast burnt. I called Lexus dealer and asked for the new ballast/transformer. Surprised me, they don't know what is it. They told me they only know the wiring harness and the socket, but not the ballast ??????? Could you tell me what do I need to replace?

Thanks,

    Test the hid bulb and ballast with a battery first. Then hook it up the same on your vehicle.

    Another alternative is to use the ballast or the bulb from the side that is working to test which hid part is faulty.

Lexus rx330 headlight igniter


I think the ballast on this car is around $230.00 for two. Mercedes wanted 2,800.00 to fix my car it took me 2 hrs. to fix it with 304.00 worth of parts. you can go out side the dealer to someone who specializes in Lexus however if they said $2305 your still looking at around $1,800.00. if you are mechanically in cline get a Haynes book from Autozone or O'reilys do it yourself. Go to ebay you can get good price's for your ballast.

How do i wire up hid headlights on 2005 mazda 3


To wire up an HID kit on the low beams of your Mazda 3 2005, you will need 3-4 things:
1- HID kit (bulbs and ballasts)
2- HID relay (connects your hid kit to your battery)
3- 4700uF capacitor (solves DRL flickering issue)
4- H7 hid bulb adaptor (you can also use the rubber piece that holds the bulb wires as a spacer)


Wiring diagram:
http://www.carsets.co.uk/upload/temp/images/hid-light-installation-photo-display.jpg

Tips on How to wire up:
1. HID bulb's amp wires connects with the ballast's amp wires. (There's only one way to connect them.)
2. The positive and the negative spade connectors from the hid relay connect with your vehicle's low beam connector, closest to your battery: the driver side. The passenger side low beam connector is not used and should be insulated. You can use electric tape.)
3. Each ballast is connected to one of the relay's clip connector, and it's grounded on each side to your vehicle's body. (One connector for each ballast, one for each side. You can use the screw for the body as a ground.)
4. The red wire(with the inline fuse) in the relay connects to your battery's positive terminal.
5. The capacitor sits on the relay switch. (Google for how to wire the capacitor onto the hid relay switch.) dynoxg image
6. The halogen bulb sits on an adapter. You can safely remove them from each other, and use an H7 hid adapter instead.

2005 Lexus Rx330 Ballast problem??? First I saw my passenger side HID headlight was on and off and then mostly off. I thought the HID bulb burnt out. I bought a new one and replaced it. After I installed...


Well, we seem to have a real dilema here. I just searched the service manual for your 2005 RX330 and I cannot find any reference to a ballast for the HID headlamp bulbs. According to the wiring diagram, they are wired to the Headlamp Control Relays in Junction Block #2. (Right-hand side of the engine compartment) These relays are "Solid State", so my guess is that the balast for the HID may be built in to them. These are controlled by the Body Control Module. I would recommend scanning the body control module for fault codes before doing anything else. The first step in the diagnostic chart for the headlamp system is to perform a diagnostic systems check. There is a symptom chart to follow if there are no codes present, but if there are codes in the system, you could be shooting yourself in the foot trying to follow the symptom chart without first correcting any fault codes. This is not your fathers headlamp system - it is equipped with tracking control and automatic headlamp leveling...VERY sophisticated. Also lots of stuff that can break...this is what I call JOB-SECURITY- - LOL!

I have a Toyota Sienna with factory installed HID headlights (2004). The driver side light will not work and when I took it to the dealer they told me that the headlight computer needed to be replaced. ...


The ECU on my 2004 Sienna passenger HID light went bad due to the condensation in the light, or at least that's what it looked like when I opened it up. The ballast was all corroded. Anyway, I searched and searched online for a way to fix it without paying the dealer $900. I just fixed it today for $92. I got the replacement ballast brand new for $92 shipped from The Retrofit Source at this site: http://www.theretrofitsource.com/product_info.php?cPath=26&products_id=161
Then I searched for an online manual for 2004 Sienna, found that, and went through the procedure of partially removing the bumper cover, taking the screws for the light fixture out, turning it on it's side and replacing the ballast. It took me about 2 hours to do the whole job, and everything works fine.
By the way, I got the part from The Retrofit Source in about 2-3 days without paying any expedited shipping. They were extremely helpful on the phone, delivered earlier than I expected, and saved me $800!!
