  1. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Hello to all, I'm looking for any advice regarding my 2013 Australian Kia Optima Platinum's factory HIDs as they are uselessly dim. They are definitely on, and having a look at the bulb outside the headlight casing it appears plenty bright, but at night the headlights barely illuminate...
  2. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    I have the 2016 Optima SXL with the fancy headlight that swivel and all. Recently the passenger side bulb went out so I naturally right it's just the bulb that's gone bad, since the DRL and indicators and all work perfectly fine, and bought new ones for replacement. Turns out they didn't work...

    Hello friends... I recently installed 55W HID bulbs in my high beams. I only drive country roads where there is nearly no traffic and I work nights, so flashing/repeatedly turning them on/off is/was not really an issue with me. Anyways, that's now beside the point. Last night when I set out on...

    First of all, I want to say thanks for the members who have done this project and wrote out instructions so others could do the same. There were a few members who I reached out for specific insight and thanks for the support. I completed this task last weekend and dialed the light beam pattern...
  8. Engine and Technical Discussion
    Okay, I'll try to explain this simply as possible. I need to know how to make the source wire of a circuit open when I close, or turn on another function. I have a set of headlights and the inner blinker is only a blinker, there is no pin in the harness for running the light as a typical...

    I need to figure out which colored wire on the headlamp harness is for the parking lights. I installed some switchback LED's awhile ago (got tired of the hyperflash) and need to put some load resistors on that wire. Thanks!
