juf replied to txab's topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra TroubleshootingWhat's the fix? Hard to believe a software update will fix everyone's problem. Especially since some changes were made after the 2014 year to remedy electrical issues. If GM knew about a problem that could affect everyone's steering and the fix was just a software update, they should've already done it.
You get a chance to try the install? I'm wondering the same thing... Looks like a pain to get down to them. Anyone know if you gotta cut up the dust cover like when installing the HIDs in the low beams?
I finally got a chance this weekend to look at the lights in more detail to figure out the problem. It turned out that the bulbs weren't upside down, but they were turned slightly so that the wire was facing between 7 o'clock and 8 o'clock. I turned the bulbs so that the wire was facing directly to 6 o'clock and now I have a nice cutoff line with no shadows in the beam. Also, the problem of the light pattern wiggling is now gone. I figure the light pattern wiggling was due to the wire vibrating and I was seeing the movement from it in the shadow. I hope that helps someone who doesn't have that clean cutoff line or a light pattern with shadows in it.
I recently installed TRS's Morimoto kit for my 2014 Silverado with projector headlights. The lights are super bright, but the pattern seems off. Does anyone else's light pattern look like this with the stock projectors? I did order the H11b lights, and they are seated completely in the housing from what I can tell...
The wiggle has actually seemed to go away some. Anyone know of turning the bulbs a different orientation might work? My bulbs had the one big tab and 2 small tabs. I aligned it up with the holes where the light goes, but maybe that's not the best orientation?
I'm pretty sure I got the bulb seated in all the way. I was thinking about that potential problem while installing. I'll definitely check it out though. I tried to get some pics of my light pattern tonight. Does it look normal? Notice the dark spot close to the middle and how the edges almost arc out?
juf replied to CbrownGT's topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra ModsHow in the world did you install those fogs without removing the bumper?? I got a pair of the fogs and was planning on installing this weekend, but couldn't see any other way but to remove the bumper.
Hey guys, I just installed some HID lights from Retrofit Source on my Silverado. I'm pretty happy with them and they're definitely brighter than stock. I've got two problems though. When my truck goes over a bump or rough road the lights seem to wiggle. It's not flickering, but the whole light pattern shakes briefly. Is this normal? Also the light pattern is terrible. I know the stock projectors aren't the greatest thing in the world, but I've got a lot of shadows in my beam pattern. I didn't notice the light pattern with the stock lights, but maybe because they weren't bright enough. Anyone got any ideas of how to fix these problems?
