    Default Cuore Headlight Problem

    Dear wheel Gurus! My Cuore's genuine headlights got broken and i had to get taiwanese one sold with name DEPO because the genuine ones cost around 11,000 per pair and these DEPO one's cost 5,000 per pair. Apparrently they look alike but after being fixed i feel the light to be very dim even on high beams. It can't stay in front of high beams of vehicles coming from the opposite side and i'm nearly blind to see the edges of the road. What can be the cost effective solution?? HIDS or some other solution??
    Regards

    If aiming doesnt fix the problem go for better bulbs.
    If that doesnt fix the problem make the high and low beam work together. My coure's both beam work together

    Head lights need to be aligned for proper vision. Consult 3S facility for accurate adjustment.

    Use good quality lamps like kioto, narva and osram in oem wattage. Excess power will damage the circuitry and housing.

    High and low beams are not supposed to run with each other. one goes on the other goes off. In a lamp with 90W/100W filaments if you do this connection making the total output to 190W per side. What you think this much heat will do??

    the bulbs are 50/65 or something near that.

    What do you think happens when you use dippers when on low beam?
    Thats right all the bulbs are on at once.

    I looked at the fuse diagram of my other car and it had 10 amp fuse for each beam. While each beam uses maximum of 5A.

    You think that the car manufacturers are stupid? for rating the fuses so high?

    As far as housing is concerned my coure is using both beams at once.

    NO FIRE! NO CIRCUTIRY DAMAGE! NO HOUSING DAMAGE!!

    TAKE IT EASY. No need to shout and get toxic , i didnt asked you to alter your car's wiring, and i damn care. This post was for OP.

    Too put the facts straight and again for the benefit of our learned PW members

    The purpose of the dipper is for overtaking and is intended to be used for
    limited time. (Are the manufacturer stupid)

    As you assumed that I think manufacturers are stupid and said that they are not then why didnt they wired the lights like you are suggesting.

    The fuse rating is based on a lot of factors and is not exactly correspond to the appliance power rating but double in almost all cases. Load requirement of 6A at 12V will not be 6A on 11V. It will be higher.

    So PLEASE dont ask people to do what you think is right.
    What you do with ur ride is your problem dont make it ours. Understood

    The dipper switch has a spring so you are not able to burn both the tube points at a time
    moreover the bulbs packaging clearly says that "dont use both the points at a time"
    hope you understand

    Oh calm down guys this thread is not supposed to be having a fight with each other. WEll! i'm more confused as to whom i should follow. Can anyone please guide me how to increase the intensity of my headlights without any harm effects on car's electrical system. BTW last time a stupid electrician did the same thing to me. He replaced 60 W genuine bulbs with 100 W bulbs. Fixed relays & wires of more intensity and what happened?? I got bulbs fused as well as other wiring problems. So please suggest me the safe way. Regards

    make sure the lights are for a RHD vehicle, then check that you actually have the front dome reflector in place, now finally check that the bulb circuits are correctly working, meaning that the low beam filament is glowing when the low beam is switched on, some electricians accidently change this. Finally ensure that the bulbs are genuine quality, correctly seated and locked and the lamp aimed correctly.

    Now for the amp question, bear in mind that when a bulb is glowing its amp pull will increase depending on heat, its not a simple yes/no question.
