Hi guys hoping someone can help me with a problem I am having fitting my H7 55w HID kit to my ST2 dipped beam bulbs.
Before anyone starts with all the arguments about legality and blinding other drivers I know all of that but in my previous car a 2012 Fiesta ZS I never had any issues as they are projector lenses as are the lenses in the ST2.
So I had this kit in my ZS and it worked with no problems at all. When I changed cars I removed the kit and have today tried to fit it into my ST2. Bulbs into lenses no problem all connections OK. However when I switched them on the HID bulbs came on for a second or two but never got bright then went out completely. When I put my indicators on they flashed!
I thought that was sounded like an earth fault so removed and checked all the connections. Everything was OK.
I have now had to replace my original halogens so I can drive the car and they are working fine so not a fuse issue.
So my question is why are they not working? Do I need canbus in the ST2? Can I still use 55w or should they be 35w?
Any help would be much appreciated, especially from any ST2 owners who have fitted HID kits.
