What was the 'fix'?
Sending me a new kit, and testing it out before they shipped it to me. The ballasts weren't working and one bulbs connector wasn't seated and let the leads fall out.

I'll probably be updooting to this myself. Thanks man.
Dooo eeeeet. Well worth it. Out of all of the kits that I looked at and researched, this is the only kit that I found that was truly plug and play. The rest want you to splice in the error canceler, and I didn't feel like splicing anything. They're bright, the cutoff is perfect, and in conjunction with either HID or LED fog bulbs, you'll never have an issue seeing in the dark again. And for 90 bucks for their most powerful kit? Yeahhhh....

Damn. Now THAT'S romantic :p
Yeah, baby, check out the curves on that Taurus! It's not like you have a choice, they're lit up like the surface of the sun! Those lights are super-bright, and I'm thinking of ordering exactly the same thing @McLabia did, the CanBus 5K 55 watt. I guess I'll have to upgrade the fog lights too. It seems like you can't go wrong for the price. Even with me having pay in Canadian dollars and have them shipped to Canada.

I picked up some inexpensive simdevma led lights over a year ago from Amazon that work well. They were a deal of the day thing. I spent 25 bucks on them. They're on Amazon now for 35ish.

Are these plug and play with the stock connectors for the fog lights?

Yep, I plugged them in, put them in the hole and turned them on. No muss, no fuss.

When I'm choosing between high and low why don't they just give you a high and low together and does it matter which one you choose and what's the difference

It doesn’t matter. We use a single bulb for our high/low beams

No difference really. The bulb is the same for both high and low. If you guy one bulb, that's all you need. The ones on there that say high and low are actually special HIDs that have actuators in them to move the position of the HID bulb. For example my first car, a Ford ZX2, only had one bulb. When you hit the high, it made that bulb Brighter. Maybe a second filament or something. That is what they are offering, and you do not need that.

Honestly don't worry about the kit by car. Just go to HID KIT BY BULB SIZE - 9005 HID KIT - Xenon-Vision and then follow the instructions on the first page of this post where it says what options you need (canbus 35w ballast) and don't forget to use the promo code dodge-dart before submitting the order. It should be a box somewhere on the wrap up page or somewhere before it. The 2013-2015 used a 9012 but yours uses a 9005. All other options should be the same. I am not sure if they properly have the 16s updated, so I would just order it straight as a 9005 to be safe. I also recommend the 5000k color.

So.
Hmph.

Appreciate the wealth of knowledge in this thread.

Only if it were found years ago when I bought my 16 in 2017.

I normally don't try to do things the hard way. I enjoy the challenge, and find a pleasure in getting things done right the first time.

The lighting issues on this car are amazing.

I have built dozens of rides. All having their own quirk's.

But this darn Dodge dart, has some goofy issues.

Now like many others I felt the headlights on this little car were inadequate.

Especially after building fully modded vehicles.

So as I do with every single car I own. I purchase upgraded lighting. Interior, exterior, front to back.

Just my thing. That's what I do.
First kit led
I won't post company names. I spent quality amount of money. We know what cheap gets you with Mopar.

From day one. Error messages, which expected. This isn't my first tango work canbus. I worked around that for a bit, built cancellers myself, which ended the messages.

And then one night in the way home, both lights go out.

Oh snap.

Pull over key on and off couple times. Back on in business.
Then few weeks. Left light out, and back on for a few days then out again.

So I replace the kit.

Kit 2

Canbus kit...still have error messages. Added my fantastic cancellers. No errors. In business...

Then one early day for work, dark as can be outside.


Headlights dont work. No key on off, hundreds of times.....nothing..

Waited for sunrise.

Leave work, lights work just fine.

So I start investigating, I notice there is no catch on the plugs I have. I assume the have play, so I tightened everything up. Slapped a couple of zip ties on harness plug to alleviate anything coming undone.

Then week or so later. Random light out, one day left one day right.....

So as much as we hate to. We invest in another quality kit.

Kit 3
Went to HiD
I figured with low wattage kits prior, I was getting errors that could not be for seen.

Kit was awesome 👌
So bright.

Months went by.. and then boom no headlights.

Drove home in darkness with running lights.

Company overnighted new ballast..

Worked great again 👍 excited

Then one day. No left bulb.
Swapped ballast. Same issue.

Company sent new bulbs.

Worked great again, for about a week.

Then random left, or right bulb out.

Very irritated by now

Replace kit

4th time. Expensive kit. Like ashamed expensive.

Canbus hid.

By this time it's like mid 2019 people have kits more figured out by now....

Got this 💪 awesome kit.
So bright
Clean cutoff
Was able to clean up my wiring quite a bit.

Kit worked. Checked everything

Then back out of the garage, walk inside go to close door. One freaking headlight.

I seriously thought I was losing my mind.

So I have dealt. With poor headlights, on my ride. Something so stupid to make a nice car look like bad. ;)

So today I double checked everything, it worked I made sure there was voltage for the 800th time. Got all back together, back out of garage. Damn headlight is out again.

SO IF I UNDERSTAND CORRECTLY FROM YOUR WHOLE THREAD.

there is an issue on the 2016 plug seating properly into the connector?

Can someone verify this.

I feel stupid to have over looked such a thing....
