    hiya guy right this is my first post hope i am putting in right place.

    the problem i have is the rh low beam light not working the thing is the last owner chaged to a CCFL ANGEL EYES HALO RING and added hid xenon fitting to it.

    the low beam is an angel eyes ring that looks to be not working. it also show on the dash that a light not working also.
    but where can i buy a angel halo ring. but at the same time whan i put the low beam light on maybe cos it not working the side yellow light stay on. but whan i swith the high beam light on it go away. has anyone else had this problem and was it the ccft halo ring that just needed to be changed.

    I'm guessing aftermarket CCFLs and not complete headlamp unit, so it's not the ring that is the problem, its the inverter that powers the ring which is at fault. Try swapping the other side's inverter to confirm.
     
     

  4. inverter that powers ccft will swap
