    QuestionFactory HID Install in 2002 Escalade

    Hey guys - what am I missing here?? I had aftermarket headlights on my EXT, and I wanted to replace with OEM. I picked up a set of D1R's with the bulb and ballast setup. However when I took off the aftermarket headlight I see only one harness. This harness plugs directly into the headlight. So all I have been successful is to get all lights except my low beams to work. I cannot find the harness to plug into the ballast. If you have done this mod, where is the harness to plug into the ballast?

    Thanks in advance, and if I'm screwed either ways let me know.





    On another note, I've got an issue with the angel eyes with my projector aftermarkets. If I am unable to get the OEM HIDs to work, then any ideas on where I can get the angel eyes - I've got 2 burnt AE's.

    I honestly can not remember anyone adding OEM headlights to a 2002. I personally went aftermarket, plug and play! The Angel eyes were all over ebay, just search Escalade headlight and sift through the results. I wish I could offer you more as to your install. Goodluck!

    It has been done apparently, and requires a wire tap.

    Can someone confirm that the pins H and J are the Low Beam Pinouts in the 10 pin connector that plugs into the headlight? If yes, looks like all I need to do is tap the 2 and get a female connector to plug into the ballast.
