  • 9008/H13 Morimoto Elite install on 2005 Ford SuperDuty

    My order #100192158 was placed 11/2017 and was delayed 4 weeks due to backorders, so I ended up missing my only window to install due to my work load. I finally had a weekend without interruption to start and complete the install. It was actually much easier than I anticipated and all went well... but I have several questions after all items have been installed (MM Elite system, XB 5000K bulbs, LED840, LED872 & LED873)

    1. When I turn on the low beams my factory driving lights will work. But when I turn on the high beams the driving light do not work. Also if the lows are on with the driving lights and I flash the high beams the driving lights go off and then come back on after releasing the high beam lever.
    2. Switching between low & high beams shows a change in the bulb illumination... but not very much. In fact it almost looks like the high beam shows a broader area including more lower illumination.
    3. Flashers and/or turn signals blink very rapid, I would guess twice a fast as with stock bulbs. It acts like the stock system when it has a malfunction or when you have a bulb out. . All are working... just blink at a very fast interval.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    You need a bi-xenon/motocontrol or whatever, since it sounds like you low beam turns off when hit the highs.
    You also need LED flasher relay or resistors on your indicators to stop the hyper flashing.

    I'm not familiar with your vehicle so someone else can chime in.

      niZmO_Man - thanks for the reply. Below is what I have found so far...

      Q1 - this is a non issue as I found out that the driving/fog lights do not work when the high beams are on! Factory thing with Ford setup.

      Q2 - Still a bit unsure as to what or if there is anything wrong. Just not a lot a difference in what I see... but I am in the city with all the street lights. Will be able to verify when we head to the mountains in a couple weeks. The Morimoto Elite system came with the bi-xenon/motocontrol, harness, ballasts & igniters and the bulbs are definitely moving forward and back when the high/low is switched as there is only the single element in the XB bulbs.

      Q3 - thanks niZmO_Man > hyper flash of the turn signals was corrected with an LED compatible flasher (Notiva EP27)

        One thing I missed: HID kit in halogen reflectors = big no-no
