What is a headlight conversion kit and where can you get it?

Posted by on

Headlamps have reached yet another level in evolution. Auto makers have carefully analyzed how halogen or HID lights influence their models and some have now turned to the next option, and that is LED lights. So far LEDs seem to be the solution for mass-produced cars but there are also several constraints that come in way of changing over to this kind of technology.

Conversion is possible even for the aftermarket but not without its set of challenges as well. LED lights require ballasts. To switch to the LED option; one needs a conversion kit to be installed. This could require modification in some cases. Conversion Kits are designed for retrofitting existing listed fluorescent troffers. They consist of high quality aluminum rails incorporating heat sink technology and mid-power LEDs for even distribution of light output.

The optical system could be a diffuser door or parabolic lenses within the existing troffers, and could be reusable after the LED Conversion Kit has been installed. Replacement doors and lenses may also available. The electrical system could be a Class 2 low voltage LED driver with an Input voltage of 110V-277V. An LED linear fixture, mounting clips and necessary hardware is provided as a part of the installation kit. There may be the need to make space behind the bulb in the housing. Some installations demand that you physically cut out a recess into the back of the headlight housing dust and moisture cap.

This however is rare. Nevertheless, pay careful attention while selecting the conversion kit and follow the simple steps as listed below.

  1. Refer to your car owner’s manual
  2. Determine your headlight bulb type
  3. Select the appropriate LED conversion kit that matches the specifications in the manual
  4. Explore the net for the various suitable options available

If modification is not required, the process of installation is no rocket science. Just follow the steps below.

  1. Snap a quick photo of your OE light output prior to after and after installation for comparison
  2. Unplug the plastic wiring connector from the factory-installed bulbs and remove them
  3. Preserve them in a safe space for possible future use
  4. Install the LED bulbs into the headlight socket carefully without touching with bare fingers
  5. Twist gently clockwise to secure it in place
  6. Connect the LED ballast wiring — one end connects to the new bulb, and the other to the original wiring harness
  7. Turn on your lights and check the cut-off position— it may need adjustment
  8. Secure the ballasts using plastic zip-ties or double-sided tape
