Mr. Moderator,
I've checked many threads and can not find info on this subject..If there is, please point me to discussions on this...Thanks in advance..John

!.) Recently purchased 2002 Seville STS w/HID lights.
Previous owner placed standard halogen bulbs into car when ballasts
"burnt" out.
2.) What were the original ballasts installed as factory equipment?
There is two PHILLIPS 1653164-5 ballasts(XenTron- XLR135, XenDrive- XLD 135) still in vehicle(3 pin plug - 2 pin plug pigtails)

3.) Is it cheaper to replace entire system with aftermarket kits sold on the internet or replace parts from Cadillac. I'd like to have HID lights again but know nothing about them??

Again , thanks in advance for and information

John

Your best bet on this one might be to call Luke in Parts at Lindsay Cadillac over there ------------> M-F, 9-5 EDT.

or try www.gmotors.com (Palm Chevrolet/Cadillac in Gainesville, FL.)

Why not get the parts from a junkyard car?
01-03's had the option of HID lights.
There are plent of these cars in the junkyard....I think I would start there. The dealer parts thing sounds expensive

Be aware, 03 had a different ballast I believe. If you go to the dealer to get a new ballast for an 01 or 02, you also have a buy a harness to adapt the stock harness to the new ballast.

There have been various aftermarket HID kits discussed on here at great length. Do some searches, and, with HID work, you get what you pay for.

I think it would be easier to get a whole new kit!! I've installed a kit and the H.I.D lights looks GREAT.A total plug and play kit:thumbsup:!
