Hey guys, my friend has a 95 gst that he just bought new projector headlights for. The headlights are some ebay brand called sonar, most likely made by some 10 year olds in Korea. We took the old ones out , and went to put the new ones in and realised that all of the connectors are different. Instead of being 1 plug , its 2 separate plugs that dont fit into anything. I was wondering if anyone has run into the same problem before, or if anyone just knows how to go about wiring them. Personally if it was my car I would just have gone nuts cutting and splicing wires, but its my friends and I can only do so much. If anyone has any info on how to help, let me know asap. Thanks alot.

Im pretty sure projectors take H3 or H1 bulbs for low beam but not quite sure.

I've done one set for a friend before.. There are really only positive and negative wires. You just have to figure out which wire goes to which light. You don't even have to worry about polarity for regular light bulbs.. ie you can mix the positive and negative. If you have H3 bulbs, then outside ring is negative, and the wire is positive.

Cut and splice, make sure you have tons of wires leftover, this is really simple electronics, just take some patience and try to follow each light, you should be able to figure it out with the stock headlight and the projector beside each other.

Thats what i did except i ran the wires from my side markers to the halo so i could just have that lit up. just cut and splice. i do remember having problems with getting the brights and dims to work right. if you bought projectors its prob a good idea to run a bead of silicone or clear cauck around the plastic lens and the housin...save you the troubble of runnin into that infamous "condensation in light" down the road, that is if you dont like that look.

good luck!

They were actually pretty easy to wire. I had the same ordeal with mine.

There should be two plugs on the back of the new one. You'll need to cut these, and strip the wire, so you can wire em to the new ones. Then, cut off the connector on the old headlight. Wire all the blacks together, and soider it. Next, take the reds, and soider them together. Last but not least, take the last two wires, and soider them together. And you should be good to go. :)
