Default Headlight Wiring Schematic

Hey guys,

I'm looking for a headlight wiring schematic.

I'm trying to replace my oem headlight with some angel eyes that I purchased, however the wiring harness that came with the angel eyes does not match up perfectly.

I've done several searches on this forum, VWVortex, and Google, but the only sites that I've found with decent information are from like 2002 and the pictures aren't hosted anymore.

I don't have the owner's manual (bought the Jetta used) or else I'd look it up there.

I could use a halo diagram or stock. At this point either will be useful.


Thanks,

HG

I don't mean to sound like a jerk... but are these Halo headlights you bought made in Hong Kong? The reason why I ask is because I had to help a few friends with the same problem, back when we all ran DSMs.

Is the headlight "socket" different than the plug?
Does it look like this? Factory ten prong?

(It is possible that you halos' need to be independently wired).

Post some pics to show your dilemma so we understand each other.

hey mate,

all angel eye headlights minus partsforeuro's helix ones aren't plug and play and need to be cut'n'chopped'n'connected to work.

heres my suggestion, grab yourself a 12v test light or even an LED or brake bulb with a wire on each terminal or a multimeter.. whichever is easier for you to grab hold off.

put it on each connector and turn on your parkers to see if it lights up, theres 1 cable, turn on ur headlights and see which other lights up and theres your second, same with indicators and fog if you have that too.

my suggestion would be NOT to cut the plug off incase you need to go back, strip back some of the cable and solder a cable around it and a connector for your angel eyes plugs. much easier

hope that helps.. its the easiest way i think anywho

It has the same socket, but the pins don't match up...

Here's the connector off of the old headlights


Here's the connector off of the new headlights:


Here's the connector on the Jetta:



I think I'm going to start guessing and checking but I wanted to see if there was a diagram out there before I tried anything


Thanks for your responses...
