Default question on xenon headlight

hi everyone,
I just bought a pair of Xenon headlight from ebay for my Cayenne 06 that has regular light. The question is that can I just plug the 2 new headlights to my car or do I need anything else to power it up. I wonder that because I dont know if my current setup can provide the power that Xenon headlight need


Thanks for any helps

Providing the "ballast packs" were supplied with the lamps you should be able to fit. Regards Big Bob

Hi
Looking at your 4 photos the last one looks like a small square aluminium type electrical device. This is probably one of the two ballast units, which provides the electrical dynamics to strike the "arc" in the Xenon Bulb in each light unit and then maintain it. Its a bit like the "electrical starter" in domestic strip lights.
Thanks and Regards Big Bob

hi there
I receive the lights today, however when I plug them in, only the side light is working but the xenon is not. Do I need any extra things to make it works on my Cayenne 06

thanks

Hi it sounds as though there is an electrical connection issue that needs resolving. Can I suggest you get some advice from a good Auto Electician that is near to your neighbourhood.
Regards Big Bob
