    so then why would a battery or alternator help him?


    ------
    capacitors are made for the purpose of dimming lights...



    now for him yea he doesnt need one cuz theyre turning on when the bass hits


    i hate starting crap but i really dont understand:shrug:

    Yea, I'm done with this thread. Obviously no one has any help unless it's reguarding DD bullitts, s281 wings or mach 1 chin spoilers. :shrug:

    I'll figure this out myself I guess.

    yeah cuz this site is def. all about appearence mods:doh:
    Maybe if the problem wasn't caused by poor wiring and the fact the amount of watts your sucking in order to power subs can supply a middle-eastern family for about six months we'd be able to provide some insight into the matter.

    What crawled up your ass and died tonight? :nonono: :rolleyes:

    And thanks for looking into the issue. I thought I saw you outside inspecting my "poor wiring". Appreciate it! :nice:

    are they getting all 800w?

    Um........... re-read my post. I didn't say that getting a battery or alternator would help him. I said that IF his lights were dimming then a capacitor wouldn't help and he should get a bat., alt, ................ I've never seen a capacitor fix dimming headlights. That was my point.

    My guess would be since you have HID's something is probably getting crossed/connected when the bass hits. I'd check the wiring on the HID's/fogs and follow them back to their sources (grounds/fuses) and see if anything looks suspicious. Being as it's flicking ON when the bass hits that'd be my best guess is that it's pounding enough to close that .001" gap between the wires and short something.

    Maybe I missed it in the post trying to weed thru all the stupid **** in this post....

    But have you done any testing with an ohm meter? Verify the wiring between the fogs and the fuse panel and on each side of the fuse is solid and not losing any current, with all the situations you described (lights on, off...fogs on...off...bass cranked, etc.)

    i get what ur sayin now...me being tired last night made me misread what u were sayin, sorry


    capacitors ARE for the purpose of surging tho. which causes the dimming of lights when the bass hits...if you have say a 2000+ watt system then getting a 1 farad capacitor wouldnt be enough...it all depends on the farads

    you have to be drawing too much current and causing arcing somewhere. Tell me, is the fog light switch set to "on" when this is happening? Or is the switch flipped off and they still come on? The latter I would not even begin to try and comprehend (I'm not too good with circuits) but the former might be a ground or overamping issue. Time to start tracing steps mang
