  • 2014 Ram 1500 D2S 4.0 swap into OEM Projector Housings

    I installed my D2S 4.0 projectors this weekend into my OEM Projector (Halogen) lamps. I originally had a TRS Morimoto XB35 9012 low beam, so I purchased the projectors, brackets, D2S bulbs, and igniters. Using the Ballasts I already had for the low beams, and the CANBUS harness (2 NEW).

    I cannot get the low's to turn on at all. First just swapped plugs around between low and high beam ballasts and CANBUS... Nothing..

    Then I swapped igniters, still noting... side to side. I'm dumbfounded. the Low Beam sys was functioning just fine the last time I drove the vehicle. I verifed 12.46VDC going into the ballast. Anyone have input? I'm at a loss, and need low beams I return to work tomorrow 3pm-11pm! HELP!!! SOS....

    I ordered a spare set of D2S Bulbs, and D2S Igniters, they came in today and through troubleshooting. It was determined I have the wrong igniters.

    I have xB 35 Ballasts with orange brackets, the D2S igniters I had were "black" on the connector (newer style/gen), my ballasts had orange brackets, Travis and I came to the conclusion I need the orange D2S igniters to use with the ballasts I have. They probably will not be delivered til the first of the week but I will update the post as soon as I verify this fixes my issue. It has to, but I NEED LOW BEAMS! Hahah...

        Confirmed I had the wrong igniters, I needed the “orange” so FYI

        Orange ballast brackets = orange igniters

        Stainless brackets = black igniters
