Since we have purchased our 2007 jeep srt8, the only mods I have done are HID lights. Since installing we have been plegued with issues. Front signal lights didn't work for a while, tail light stopped for a while, center console dash lights quit working... Multiple times. Now speaker on passenger side cutting in and out. all over a 6 month period

Has anyone had problems like these? Don't know if it's just pure chance that all this happened after the lights installed or if it is all electrical. I have heard that these systems are all tied together?

I had attempted to put them in my hi beams & ended up frying the control module in the front. Luckily, it was replaced under warranty (i didn't tell the dealer). I think the part was about $1,000? Anyway, I just put in PIAA bulbs instead that work fine & a bit brighter than stock. When the module fried, I had similar issues as you, turn signals messed up, horn, but nothing to do with the speakers console or dash lights. Maybe just pop the originals back in & see if your issues go away.

I have an 07 and when i just used a Hid set it screwed up everything from TPMS to the radio . Get 2 relay harnesses and use one on each side leaving one plug empty for some reason 07 have this problem the most I di a 08 and 09 with a single harness without any ill effects . I haven't found a dual trigger HID harness yet so this will have to do for now .

So I have recently had more problems with my HIDs. High beams keep going out and then My clock would not work and Nav said I was 80 km from where I actually was. So I went under the hood and replaced the crappy in line fuses on the light cause they kept shorting out and what do you know. Everything works now. Stupid high beams and some how directly integrated into the whole system. This is so Dan stupid. This is why I love old school muscle cars. No electronic shit. Easy to track problems

I have a 07 and installed lows and fogs xtreme digitals from XenonDepot. They worked the first time with zero issues since.

So you replaced the high beam fuses?

Ya bought a new fuse and spliced it in. Shitty connections in the factory ones. But it seems the high beams are the ones that cause a bunch of problems
Did you put HIDs in the high beam? Did you shut off the auto high beam function in the EVIC?

I would remove the HID lights you installed and see if everything else is working. Also did you install the on the Low beam and the High beam as well? Did you use an external relay when installing each kit?

Just a related issue, if any of you have issues with automatic high beams, most likely not an electrical problem. In from tire well you can see very easy when truck on lift, you will find a lever switch about a few inches long. This is the auto high relay. For some reason they are none to break and either get stuck down or up. Easy fix just switch it to opposite position if not working. Dealer knows about it and will replace under warrnty.
