OEM Analogous HID Xenon Ballasts for Headlamps
NB! Useful information when selecting OEM Xenon ballast.
OEM Xenon ballast, or an Ignitor for xenon lamps, from the original equipment manufacturer, is a standard ignitor for xenon lamps in vehicle headlights. OEM Xenon ballast has a unique shape of the body, fixturing points and terminal block connector and is fully integrated into the electrical system matching these ballasts of the vehicle. Therefore, standard ignitors last longer than universal ones as they are located in a niche intended for them, best protected from moisture and dust, inside the headlight body or the vehicle, which reduces the risk of moisture entering the terminal block – the worst enemy of the vehicle's electrical system.
There are two options for choosing OEM ignitor.
First option: Choosing by a part number of the ballast's or vehicle's manufacturer. This option does not guarantee the right choice, especially for restyled vehicles, when the old body acquires a new "body kit".
There is a Second option, more practical and proven. Choose the ballast corresponding to the make, model and year of your vehicle and then visually compare your old ballast to be replaced with detailed photos of the ballast you have chosen on our website. The ballast must match yours in detail. Pay special attention to the connectors: shape of the connectors and the number of pins in the connectors must match. If everything matches, then this ballast is yours.
In both cases, carefully compare your ballast with the ballast shown in the photos on our website.
