CDM HID Level Motors wiring.
I set out this past weekend to make and install a harness for the manual leveling feature on the CDM HID's I picked up last year from duder ( Remington). This task ended up costing me around $75 and 12-hours of time. I am sure I could have accomplished it faster but I prefer to take my time and test things along the way.
I started off with a trip to The Home Depot for basics, like wiring in red, black and white and loom and heat shrink tubing. Afer several failed attempts at finding a small enough spare connector for the motors on the lights, I ended up using telephone wire crimp connectors. These were actually a tad too large but slightly crimping them help ensure a solid connection.
Per the wiring diagram from Ben at Hodges, I went to work. The lights themself have 3 leads, and from what I could tell it is a +, - , and signal wire. The signal wire is the center, and I made the top of each the + and the bottom wire the - .
Here are a few photos of the harness connected to the level motor plugs. I went for an oem look.
The dash switch is an OEM part for the forester, with 0-5 selectors. It has 6 leads on it. The two outside leads are for the light bulb. The next two outside leads are for the 12v + and - , and the two center leads are for the signal feeds for the switches.
with advice from 2.5x_sleeper, I sourced my 12v and Illumination leads from the cig/12v source in the console.
Refer to this thread for wiring diagrams.
I will go out this weekend and take measurements of each point with its cut off range and post them as well.
thanks for looking.
