    Question Headlight Fuse

    Does anyone know if the fuse for the headlamps on the 07 Vec, SRi is a 20 amp? Just got a HID kit from HIDs Direct and when I read the manual it says the headlamp fuse needs to be at least 20 amp or it will burn out.

    I'm sure it is, even so, the HID kit runs at a lower wattage anyway doesn't it? So it can't burn out can it?

    On a second note I thought the kit was very well made well impressed Going to put it in some time next week. Will show the before and after.

    In the manual its showing up as a 10A fuse so I'm assuming that I should replace this with a 20A fuse. In the manual for the HID kit it says not only can it blow but it can cause problems such as strobing and shut downs so maybe thats why people are experiencing problems with their HID kits. I don't know tho

    I connected the HID kit up today to see if it worked fine, and it does. I can't wait to install them properly and see what they are like at night.

    One thing I did notice tho is that the fitment for the bulb (the base which secures the bulb in place) was ever so slightly smaller than the standerd one. I went in easier than a standerd bulb but I also noticed that it was easier to move about (and take out) in the socket once in place. I'm going to test them while I'm driving tomorrow to see if they bounce about or even come out of the sockets. If they do, does anyone have any tips on securing them properly? If not I'll have to get onto HIDs Direct I think.

    Has anyone else had this problem at all?
