I had this installed and have had ZERO problems. I am in the process of addings new headlights and they use the F52 fuse for the halos. I cannot plug both of these in at the same time. Not sure how to make this work.


Accualy, after looking at this thread, I am going to try F91 to power the halos.
Any change you were installing the Oracle headlights with the halos? Did it work using f91? Im about to do the same install this week and running into the same dilemma

Does this mean you can then tap into the in cabin lighter wire to get a always hot wire for other things without needing to put a wire through the firewall?

Yes. Our kit even uses the same fuse, so you will retain the OEM protection. The "source" of the 12v is simply changed from "ignition on" to "always on" - but with all of the same OEM protections for the wiring, etc.

Wish I had seen this before spending about the same amount trying to make 2 add a fuse adapters do the same thing, only to find out I couldn't fit them in the fuse box. This was actually on my Pacifica, but its the same fuse block. Will be ordering soon, probably one for the Pacifica and one for the Wrangler.

We've had them in continuous stock since introducing it about a year ago. Orders ship same day as ordered.
I have not received mine yet and ordered it near the first week of December.

Hey Ted - I had no idea there was a delay. You ordered on December 5 and we shipped that same day. And the package shows that it just got to you today, Jan 9!! Unbelievable! That's HORRIBLE! Anyway, it is certainly an anomaly. With every order, as soon as we print the shipping label, an email with tracking info is sent. If we would have known, we could have sent a second package. (After a MONTH, I certainly would have thought it was lost!)

No worries, I got home from wheeling last night and it was in the mail box. In this world, this is a minor problem. I think it is super cool that you looked into it and replied in a public forum. Hats off to you guys for great customer service. I do not blame you for the actions of other companies.

Nice product and great idea. I would buy from you again.
