DIY: OEM JDM HID Headlight Conversion

Hi All,

Look what I got early for Christmas this year. Yup, just received my order from Buyee for a pair of JDM HID Headlight from Japan. I actually got 2 sets (ordered the post-facelift by accident). I will be using the pre-facelight for my wife's 07 Hatch and plan on selling the post-facelift once I'm done with the DIY write-up.

Now here comes the hard part. I'll need everyone's input to make this project a success and everyone else will have a chance to do the conversion. Specifically, I need part numbers that I need to order for the pigtails without cutting any wires coming from the car.

Enviri - Feel free to chime in since you've already completed this project in another post. Do you mind sharing the male/female pigtail plugs that I need to purchase?

Thank you all! I've done this JDM HID conversion on my 09 Rav4 and it makes a world of difference driving at night!

hmm it looks like you already got the ballasts included (i hate you for that)

90980-10942(x2) is the female 4 pin connector you need.
(luckily it seems someone is selling one with wires already put in place, https://www.ebay.com/itm/90980-10942...t/351993047230)

then you need to ebay a quality h4 female pigtail connector, and a 194/t10 parking light extension cable.

then of course, a D4R bulb (NOT AN D4S, D4C may work.) and H7 for the super useless highbeam.

D4R in america is used in 06-09 prius, and 08-10 avalons.
GARAX and TOM's makes great bulbs outside the traditional OEM color range, that wont destroy the wallet btw...

CTScott helped alot on details of connecting the wiring, and he added an extra ground somewhere, which i forget.

Thanks enviri, I'll get the ordering started. My headlight pretty much came with everything including all the bulbs and ballasts. Am I still good to use the D2R bulb? It says on the side of the marking D2R 35W. The highbeams were a real pain to take out because the retainer clip was on pretty tight. Luckily I won't be changing this that often.

Also, if you take a look at img1141, it shows the the top half of the HID projector beam inside the case. Unlike my Rav4, which I had to reverse the metal plate that was inside the projector casing, it appears that with the Yaris there is no metal plate on the inside and you can adjust the beam pattern from left hand side to right hand side by just using a screw driver.

Enviri - On the last image, can you get met started on which of the 4 wires are connected to the H4 connector?

Thanks

if it already has d2r then first check the part number of the ballast, and stay d2r.

wiring i have to get back to you.
im pretty sure green is the parking light, and black is common ground. our headlight has a switched positive setup (or is it switched negative?), i gotta pop the hood and check it out once weather permits.

H4 Connector is switched ground. Low and Hi has their own ground pin.

Based on Enviri connector photo and pin orientations im guessing

Red Low Beam
Black Hi Beam
Green Parking
Black 12v.

Now that I'm catching a break from the snow and all my harnesses have finally arrived. I'm hoping to install this soon. Enviri - Any luck with getting the wire connections from your car? Just need some wire identification so I can solder the 4 to 3 prong harness. Also, I'm not sure where the 194/t10 parking light extension cable goes because I don't see any plug holes left for me to put this in the headlight. I took the little light bulb out in the picture and tried connecting the 194/t10 extension cable but that plug was fine with without any extension cable.

Thanks

Also you might start poppin fuaes on headlight use like i did. I went against ctscott's recommendation and went +5a... Although i think +2.5a is enough, maybe?

Thanks dude! I'll give it a shot when the weather warms up again. I don't want to mess with the fuses or anything else because I'm not a very technical guy and don't want to burn anything.

once you're connected and got it working, the fuses will pop itself lol. It wasnt instant, but some days, off it goes. its the low beam fuse, obviously. i havent changed fuses since i upped the amps years back.

Wow, what a difference between the HID and halogen lights.

Looks like we'll have warm weather for the next 2 weeks. Let me know if you can get one of the headlight apart and shoot the vids for each connecting harness. I only got a few of connecting wires from the first youtube video you put up because of the camera angle.

Thanks
