Perfect: The all new Morimoto Standalone Canbus 2.0 wiring harnesses are the perfect solution for a headlight upgrade on vehicles with finicky headlight systems. Say goodbye to "bulb out" warning lamps and flickering caused by "can-bus" systems.
Effective: Each canbus headlight harness has a built-in resistor pack to mimic the characteristics of a standard halogen bulb being plugged in to your stock harness, tricking the car into thinking nothing has changed - effectively avoiding the side effects of lamp out systems such as warning lights, flickering, or pulsing.
Noise Free: The Morimoto Standalone Canbus 2.0 harnesses have built in ground circuits to help minimize annoying radio interference from your HID Ballasts. They don't have to be connected, but relative to ungrounded systems - these will allow for a much less EMI-prone outcome.
Universal: The original version was developed specifically with the VW and Euro market in mind, and they worked well on cars like the newer VW MK5 Golfs, Jettas, BMW E46, etc. The new Standalone 2.0 harnesses also work well on most domestic vehicles like Jeep Grand Cherokees and Dodge Durangos. Only the most difficult canbus systems (such as 2015 Dodge Rams) will require more complicated harnesses like the full Morimoto from Morimoto!
Optimal: When used with Morimoto's XB35 ballasts - these are technically even more "can-bus friendly" than something like a comparable Hylux 2A88 ballast with an integrated canbus harness - since the start amperage of Morimoto's ballasts is lower, the combo will create less overall strain on the factory wiring.
Simple: With fewer connections to make compared to something like a full relay wire harness; even your mom could set this thing up it's that easy. Input here, output there, ground there...done.
Sold as a pair: The standalone canbus headlight harnesses come as a pair, one for each side of the car. They are meant to be used as a substitute for a full relay harness, not in addition to one.

I have a 2010 Ford Explorer and since I decided to install an HID kit it´s been very hard to keep the factory bulb out function and the autolamps. I tried a CanBus error free ballasts and still the error came up, added a relay harness and resistors and it would trick the computer so no error but for some reason couldn't use the auto lamps, it would still give me an error on the passenger side (Right side). It was until I tried the standalone CanBus harness, now the installation is simplified, I can use the autolamps error free, I mimicked a blown bulb disconnecting it and it immediately gave a "check lamp" error (with the resistors it didn't give any errors). So now my truck behaves like factory, just the way I wanted and the best part is with a simplified installation, can´t be any happier, thanks!
I have a pair of vw passat option 3 headlights with a cheap ballast and connections. They were nothing but problems and headaches. The low beam on the passenger side would flicker at times and the driver side would not turn on and I would error messages in my dash. I installed the Morimoto ballast and stand alone can-bus and that fixed every thing. No more issues. This was worth the money.
Bought another vendor's "Error Free" Vehicle Specific HID kit for my car, plugged it in, well, guess what? It wasn't error free at all! In fact, I was not only met with a "Bulb out warning" on my dash, but was also "gifted" with HIDs that didn't turn on if it was below 45°F! The vendor advised me to wire up relays, which worked to get the lights to come on, but didn't solve the warning light on my dash, and also had a loud buzz from the relays. The other vendor's support stopped at this point, and I went out on my own to find the answers.
The Retrofit Source came to the rescue with the CAN-BUS Standalone modules! Literally took less than 60 seconds per side to pop them in (followed by much longer to unwire the other company's relays!) and I was rewarded with HIDs that turn on *every* time (no flicker and no buzz, no matter what the temperature) and, almost more rewarding than being able to see, is the fact that I *DON'T* see a bulb out warning any more!
I really wish I would have stumbled upon TRS sooner, the slight premium in price is worth every cent. No headaches, the product works as advertised, and it is of the highest quality. I know where the rest of my lighting purchases will be made from now on!
