You could tie into the high beam or the low beam wire to power the lights. But, they will turn on only when that circuit is used. If it is tied into the low beam they will turn off when you switch to high beam. To tie in you should be able to splice into the harness right at the standard headlight plug in the headlight bucket.

How to change head light lamp on a Saturn S-Series SC2


Hello,
Purchase the replacement light you need from an auto parts store. Give them the year and particular Saturn S Series model number to acquire the right part. Also indicate whether you need the high or low beam light bulb, as some S Series models require separate bulbs.
  • Turn off the engine. Pop the hood and secure it open. Disconnect the battery cables from the battery by grasping the cable and pulling it straight off of the positive and negative battery terminals.

  • Position yourself in front of the headlight you wish to repair. Look behind the headlight assembly to find the wiring harness for the headlight assembly. Lift the locking tab, grab the wiring harness and pull the wiring directly away from the assembly.


  • Grab the old headlight bulb, twist it counterclockwise and pull it out of the headlight assembly. Replace it with a new bulb and secure it by turning it clockwise.

  • Reconnect the wiring harness to the headlight assembly and reconnect the battery cables. Test the lights to see if they work properly.

  • Thanks

    I bought some halo driving lights for my '03 GMC Sierra 1500, they came with a wiring harness, switch and everything needed for installation except for installation instructions. Help PLEASE!


    Tools recommended for this job: wire stripper, wire crimper, volt meter, 4x quick wire connectors, 4x male crimp connectors, 4x female crimp connectors
    1. First, tape the halo and/or LED wires to the back of the headlights to keep them from tangling.
    2. Keep the pairs in order by their color, e.g. black, black (ground) and Red, Red (positive). Note: positive and ground wires might not always be black and red.
    3. Remove some of the plastic shielding at the end of the wires to expose enough copper wire, next twist the copper together to strengthen it.
    4. Shove the twisted copper into a crimp connector; crimp the location where wire and the connector end overlaps, wrap with electrical tape to secure it.
    5. Two extra wires in black and red will be helpful to make the halo/LED wire longer to easier installation. Remove shielding: show copper: use the connectors: connect the positive and ground from the headlights.
    6. Next step, turn the headlights inside the car to the [on] position.
    7. Take the volt meter and connect the negative to the negative on the battery (please use extreme precaution when doing so).
    8. The headlight harness usually will have [3] wires, generally red, black, green (headlights, ground, turn signal). Use the volt meter to test which wire will have power running through it (since the headlight is in the [on] position) which will be the headlight wire.
    9. Use the quick connector to connect the extra wires (red) to the power wire on the harness and black to the ground. This will split the current coming from the harness. Crimp the connectors and use electrical tape to secure it.
    10. Now connect the projector headlight halo wires and the harness from the car.
    11. No wires should be left over unconnected.
    12. The installation is now complete.

    How to change a headlight for Saturn outlook for 2007


    I have an Outlook that was burning through bulbs. The best way to change it, is to remove the inner fender well and it gives you easy access to the rear of the headlight assembly. It takes about 2 min and no skinny hands required.

    Wiring harness picture needed for 1993 Nissan Altima. When headlights turned on, stereo shuts off.


    Nissan change their color codes on their harnesses all the time , a diagram won't be much use.
    What has happened is that Nissan has a wire that appears to be an earth in the stereo harness , but goes live when the headlights are turned on ( it is there for the factory stereo to dim the lights when the headlights are turned on.)
    Easiest way to connect stereo is to use a Multitester set on 20 volts to find Power , Accessory and earth wires, remembering to turn your lights on and off each time to check for the Nissan sneaky wire. ( You are lucky, I have seen whole looms go up in smoke because of that wire )
    To isolate the individual speaker wires, solder a couple of wires to a AA battery and " flash " it across the pairs of suspected speaker wires while listening for a " Crackle " from the speakers, this is a handy way to figure out which wires go to each speaker without having to pull the doors apart to look.
    Happy Fixing Marshall

    Headlight flickers or goes out while driving - replaced bulb - same thing. someone said replace a ''power source''??


    hi, this is a shorted wire harness. the wire clip that attaches to the back of the bulb has a short in its housing. you will need to replace the headlight wiring harness. this will fix the flickering.

    Installed radio in a dodge i turn on the headlights and the radio


    Sounds like you wired the ground to your headlight dimmer wire. It's grounded until you turn the lights on, then it goes hot, thereby leaving your radio without a ground. Better see which wire you tied in to the headlight circuit. Be sure to check the wires you are connecting to on the vehicle's harness with the key off AND with the key on to make sure it's pos. or neg. when you want it to be.
