1. How to replace the headlights on a Jeep Wrangler

If you have a Jeep Wrangler, replacing the headlights in your Wrangler is a relatively simple task. In this video, we’re going to show you how to replace the headlights on your Jeep Wrangler.
We want to start with a look at the batteries installed under your headlights. These batteries provide charge to light up the halo lights. In order to properly ensure that your battery remains in good condition by minimizing the amount of time that they are exposed to moisture and reducing the amount of corrosion across their terminals you should be performing a regular battery check. A basic battery check can be performed by reading and measuring the amp-hours (AWh) present in your battery’s terminals.
Teaching a machine tool or electrician how to properly read and identify the amp-hours on a battery terminals can be a bit daunting. If you are not a machine tool or electrician yourself, please do not hesitate to reach out to a professional for assistance in performing this simple act. We will go over replacing the battery terminals below.

This is a guide on how to wire color changing halos on projector headlights for Jeep Wrangler. These halos are plug and play, but you will need to use a set of resistors for the halo rings. The resistors are not included in the kit, so you will have to buy them separately.

*Halo Ring (+ 1 tube)
*Resistors for each Ring (+ 2 tubes)
*Spare fuse (22 shrink tube)

This article was written for the 2015 and newer Jeep Wrangler JK. If you are using a previous model (before 2015) then all of the instructions will still apply for you.

The Instructions

Open the hood of your car, and look up at the grill. There should be some wires hanging down. If so, plug them up.
For reference, here is a picture of the actual brackets to place the wires into. Need to buy 22 shrink tube for the parts.
Use the terminals of the terminals labeled with the wire color you choose to cover them up with.
Here is a list of the wire colors and their corresponding terminal directions.

3. How to wire up a set of color changing halo lights for Jeep Wrangler

The process of wiring halo lights isnt hard, but it is quite tedious, especially if you dont have much experience with wiring at all. The first thing youll need to do is to get a wiring diagram for the halo light set you have. You can download the wiring diagram for the halo lights I used from here: https://www.topkitoffroad.com/products/rgb-led-headlights-for-jeep-wrangler. Include this diagram in your notes from above.

Step 1: Connect power to the bulbs

On the back of the Jeep there is a stretch of wire that attached to the battery box. At the end of this wire was 4 individual wires; red, white, yellow, and blue. We are going to use these wires when we attach the halo lights to the Jeep. These 4 wires will be the power, ground, the negative terminal for the power, and a 10-pin male plug that will go into the negative side of the battery. These wires will connect your computer to the Jeep when you turn on the lights. I used an extension cord from Costco for about $30. You can go ahead and cut the wires if you’re uncomfortable with that, but your computer will need to turn on to work with the extension cord and these 4 wires at that point.

Step 2: Connect the wires to the PCM

Next, we need to connect the 4 wires in opposite order to accomplish the following steps:

1. Ground Ground = WHITE

2. power Ground = RED

3. power Positive Tip = YELLOW

4. positive + tip = PURPLE

Step 3: Preparation for the heat shrink

If you want your halo lights to last an extremely long time, you should consider buying or obtaining some heat shrink shrink insulation from a hardware store. Not only does heat shrink help your Jeep look newer, but it also allows harnesses to fit tightly where they are needed. Once again, pull your favorite channel on the internet and search for “heat shrink tubing” and locate a heat shrink stocking.
