Anyone have these on their Accord ? I just got the 5k kit for my 2014 V6 accord and the ballast connect to the OEM harness does not fit and wont click in all the way. The ballast connector is too big. Anyone have this issue ?
This is what I noticed as well. I have the exact same kit but ordered two sets just in case (which was a good thing since one HID bulb was loose in the factory headlight housing). I did what nowRlater suggested and have had no issues since I got it working (knock of wood).The ddm ballast are made with the generic 9006/9005 connectors. You have to use the pigtails that came with the kit.
I've seen this problem too in the past, put the two mating connectors side by side and eyeball to see if the spacing between the prongs align with the mating part, adjust with a pair of needle-nose pliers an try again, it should work.Happened to me first time as well. I was using the wrong connector and I also had to carefully push out those two metal prongs inside so it will click in. Try flipping it around. It was trial and error until I got it to work.
Thread police? #noseyNo offense & it's great that you are happy with your purchase but how does your response really help the OP or answer his/her question? :scratch:
LOL. I was being honest when I said I meant no offense. I've been in the OP's position before and it gets frustrating sometimes when people don't answer the question (you're desperately trying to get an answer to) all while they insist that the sky is blue in South Africa, etc. :dunno:Thread police? #nosey
Didn't realize I couldn't comment unless it "helps" him. Smh
I had no connector issues. So if he wants a trouble free kit, mine was great. He just bought his kit so if he doesn't like the color, connectors, fit, ect after he installs it, he now has another source. Not a big deal. I made the comment because I just recently purchased a HID kit for my new Honda too, not that anyone here has to answer to you. Don't be thread bully. Nobody likes those. Lol
I had heard that DDM's color charts were slightly off. For instance the 5000K HIDs I got seem pure white without a hint of blue which I believe they should have.Does DDM oftentimes send kits in the wrong color temperature? I find the the new 4500K HID kit I recently ordered for the Accord is significantly more blue than the DDM 5000K HID kit I bought several years ago.
The 5000 should be pure white, no blue.I had heard that DDM's color charts were slightly off. For instance the 5000K HIDs I got seem pure white without a hint of blue which I believe they should have.
It sounds like they may have made a mistake and sent you the wrong kit. They didn't mess either one of my orders so I'm not sure how commonplace it is for them.
I had this exact issue. Here are two things I did to make the lights work.Anyone have these on their Accord ? I just got the 5k kit for my 2014 V6 accord and the ballast connect to the OEM harness does not fit and wont click in all the way. The ballast connector is too big. Anyone have this issue ?
