Customer Question
I have recently wired...

I have recently wired up my halos through my parking lights as instructed by Spyder. Now when I turn them on the parking lights all work but the left parking light is really bright now and it still works but you can BARELY even notice my turn signal on that side. It is a lot brighter then my other parking light. Let me know what you think. May be because the paints pretty chipped away on the bulb on that side?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the vehicle's cabin fuse box?

Yes everything’s operating correctly

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Spyder?

2005 for a Dodge Ram 1500 slt

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Spyder yourself? What have you tried so far?

I’ve wired them through the parking lights as the instructions video said to do , spliced all my wires correctly and voltage dropped almost everything having to do with the headlights

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

There is a lot of paint chipped away from the bulb on that side could that be the problem

Hello. Before we get too carried away with a lot of testing I would replace that turn signal bulb and see if it changes anything

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
