  • Powering low/high beam solenoid on a bixenon projector

    Hi All,

    quick one. Reading here and there, some users reported burnt solenoids when powering them (directly from the car high beam connector) for high beam in dual xenon projector.

    Is it recommended to use a dedicated loom / harness to reduce the current and avoid this? Or can I just power them with the high beam wiring from the car?

    Thanks!

    You can power them straight from the high beam wiring if there is no DRL on the high beam. That would be the only cause of any issues I would know of

      Like gold said, no issues powering it from the main high beam plug as long as the DRL isn't causing it to flutter.

        Those users probably have super budget projectors with crappy solenoids,or like Goldy and PP Master mentioned the solenoids were wired to a highbeam circuit that are DRLs.
