    No, the wiring between the new ballasts and the bulbs isn't long enough.

    Yes, look at post #181.

    I should probably order the thin ballast option so they will tuck in somewhere.
    They have an optional wiring harness; that might be handy. I think it rolls into the order on their order page.

    I'm going to order a pair. To do this conversion, buy these adapters, order either the VVME or DD kit for the 9006 HID bulbs, and a set of 9006 HID bulbs? Is that all the parts needed?

    A "kit" usually comes with a pair of bulbs. I use the VVME slim ballast kit, 5000K.

    I installed one of the bulb replacement kits with an adapter and it went well for the most part. I have an issue I'm wondering if anyone has seen.

    If the lights are in autolamp mode and I start the car in the dark, the new VVME bulb will not light up and I'll get the Check Headlamp message. If I turn them off/on it will then light up. If I turn them on manually or they turn on automatically while the car is running it is fine. Seems to be something with them trying to light up while the car is cranking.

    Edit - found this answer http://www.lincolnvscadillac.com/showthread.php?t=64245&highlight=headlamp . One person says if the load isn't balanced it throws the message, one says you need a huge capacitor to stop the error from occurring during cranking.

    Fixed that for ya. ;)

    Both of my aftermarket ballast cases are grounded.

    I've also tried the "error cancelling" capacitor modules that are sold, but it didn't make a difference. :(

    I notice that if I key on and let the bulbs light up then start, it doesn't happen. If I key on and crank at the same time, the voltage drop while the lights are trying to light must be what sets a code. I wonder if a higher cold cranking amp battery would prevent the voltage drop. I'm using a 675 cca battery now which seems low.

    He should have plenty left. I just got a set not long ago from him. I haven't installed the housings yet because I'm waiting on a true Phillips kit for them but they'll be in soon. DLF's adapters are Grade - A

    Just go to his buy it now link and purchase a set. He'll have them to you within 2 days. He packages and ships nice and quick!

    PayPal for him is here. Describe your purchase in the notes.

    I don't have a true answer for that one yet. I had to round up 6 screws with a hex head and luckily they work but I don't know their exact length and size. Chris might have the answer for that one or Doug might be able to tell you but they don't have to be long. Take a housing inside Home Depot and test fit while inside the store. The holes are brittle because of their age and they will crack at the hole if the screw is too big.

    I'm off your parts counter lol. He said he was waiting anyway and I couldn't round up "your link" and watch the races at the same time. I'm clocking out for lunch.. :p
