    Default Which headlight bulb for 2004 Cultus?

    Friends,

    I need suggestion for good quality H4 bulb for 2004 cultus. Should be good lighting. I bought Narva Range Power White from Dubai Autos and i must say I'm not satisfied with them. Maybe they are not suited for old headlamps because people here were much inclined on these Narva's lamps. Just used them for one day.

    I already have relays installed. Is it possible that relays are not working properly because the voltage at terminals was 10.9V? btw I've seen some cars here that have extremely white light as compared to normal bulbs and i must say, their visibility is excellent. wish i could stop them to ask which are those (not HID). you guys have any idea which might they be?

    another thing i want to ask, would replacing the old headlamp assembly with new crystal lamp reflector type would make a major difference. I know it would help, but would it make a really noticeable difference to be worth it?



    PS: I want to get rid of these Narva bulbs, would they take it back? dont think so being used, i just want my money back. Anyone interested in these?

    Install 90/100W Kioto Halogen H4 Bulbs with relay on both Lamps. It will definitely work.

    I did a check on wiring today and it seems that the previous owner did the work done from some idiot electrician, i mean in the fuse box there is clearly mentioned A/C relay and a relay is also installed, but still he installed a relay for compressor clutch near it and wired it straight to alternator without any fuse! or is my understanding wrong?

    also the wiring is a mess all wires are taped together no labels whatsoever, seems like i'll have remove the tape and redo all of it, group wiring properly etc.

    another thing i want to ask, when people say install two relays, how do they work, one for low, one for high or one for left and right respectively? these must be dual SPST relays right? isnt it better to use 4 single SPST relays one for each?

    finally please check the diagrams below are they normal, i think they are messed up too:

    Which headlight bulb for 2004 Cultus? -293411

    when off all 3 terminals are at 12V.

    on low beam:
    Which headlight bulb for 2004 Cultus? -293412


    on high beam:
    Which headlight bulb for 2004 Cultus? -293413


    is this how its supposed to be? 12V on gnd and 0v respectively on each when turned on, the thing i dont understand is how it is 12v when off and goes low when turned on.. i'll further check on these wiring connections tomorrow.

    great suggestion, do check them. New are also available and are Made in Japan. You have to do little khuwari to get them but they worth. I changed the same and there is great improvement. Plus clean the glasses of the head light even if they are apparently looking clean!!!

    spray some formula polish on headlamps. sometimes it helps. wesay i think u shud go for crystal lamps. the old cultus, new cultus and the new city come with osram bilux 55w bulbs. you can compare the lighting of the cultus with crystal lamps
