  1. Thanks primaz. I debated the LEDs but surrendered and restored it all back to the sealed beams. I had a secondary issue with the higher voltage HIDs that I hadn't mentioned before. Whenever I would turn the headlights on and the ignition was on, I'd get a humming out of the alarm system siren speaker. I tried ferrite coils and some other things to eliminate the problem, but nothing seemed to work. So it's back to old school for us.
  2. Thanks Evlevo. I think the problem probably is in the non-working relay harness, but to answer your questions. I checked the car side electrical by plugging a halogen bulb and lens into the factory plug (bypassing the relay harness and ballast on that side) and the headlight worked. Also checked the voltage coming out of the relay itself (where it plugs into the ballast) on the non-working side with a multi-meter and that's where I saw I was getting the 12v going into the ballast. Replaced the bulb itself with a new one and then also checked it with a second new one and neither worked.
  3. My son's 79' 280zx had HID headlights with projector lenses installed by the previous owner. In the past a headlight would go out and we'd replace the bulb or ballast and it would resolve the issue. Recently however the driver's side headlight went out and I can't seem to figure out why. It's getting power to the ballast (a little over 12 volts) and we installed both a new bulb and ballast but no luck. My question however is more in regards to the relay harness. All over the internet I see where a relay harness is used but in the illustrations they contain only one relay and only
