I just recieved my HID look a likes and am installing on my 2000 B5. I noticed in the installation of the headlight plug that the contacts are not the same. I finished the install on one side and tested. I found that the little 5W bulb does not light with the euroswitch in the city light position. The projector light lights up at about 80%. I took the headlight housing back off the car and found that the city light contact has no contact from the harness. Do I need to run wiring from the euroswitch to the headlight to run my city lights? I searched around here a bit and have not read anything about this prob. I had read that these lights were "plug and play".
Has anyone else ran into this problem? I am interested to hear how to remedy this. Thanks in advance for your quick responses. I'll be in my garage with my head on my hands.... :???:

Look at the picture to the right, with colors indicating pins:



Move the green pin to the red pin position in your headlight wiring harness. Your city lights will work now when you pull your headlight switch to the first position.

GREAT!! Thanks for the help! I actually got out the test light and tried to figure out what this lead was for. I did not think of the fog. Any idea of how to "pop" the lead out of the connector? Usually it takes a paper clip or something to release the prong that holds it in. Is this one different? Thanks again for the help. :thumbup:

Thanks for the thread. I did a search for city lights and this did not come up. Hmmm... Anyways, thanks for the info. I think I will do the simple wire swap for now, then when I get my fogs I will hook up my city's to the parking lights and wire up the fogs. Gotta luv this club! :thumbup:
