    Mirage SE Halogen headlamps to Mirage GT Xenon headlamp swap

    I have a 2017 Mirage SE with the Halogen headlamps. I would like to buy the Mirage GT Xenon projector headlamp assembly and swap out my Halogen headlamps. I noticed that instead of having three connectors to connect the three separate bulb sockets on my Halogen headlamp assembly, there is only one connector on the back of the Xenon headlamp assembly. Is there an adapter, or harness, that can be used to make this a simple plug and play operation? Has anyone done this type of headlamp swap? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Use Sumitomo 8 pin female connector for headlamp assy and 2 pin male connector for small lamp.
    And HID relay controller to convert from H4 system to HID.

    Thank you for your quick reply. Is this for converting my original Mirage SE Halogen headlight assemblies into Xenon? The Mirage GT Xenon headlights that I want to buy already come with the Xenon bulb and has the controller attached to the bottom of the assembly. See the attached photos. My SE headlight assembly is shown in the top two photos and the GT headlight assembly is shown in the bottom two photos.

    you also need this to locate where to place the right wires on the socket.

    That's ballast for HID.
    The relay controller is to keep light power when You switch to high beam and move the high beam selenoid. Without controller, in H4 system the low beam will off when You switch to high beam.

    Yes, there's line in ETACS to control the headlamp, You can choose 2 beams or 4 beams. I tried this and it didn't work for me.
    Mine is 2015.

    edit. I also tried on my 2018 Xpander, low beam still off when I switch to hi beam. Or I missing something on ETACS?

    Thank you. This is very helpful. It looks like there is a jumper wire connecting terminal 6 to terminal 8 on the Sumitomo 8 pin, female connector. Is that right? It also looks like the two connectors on the HID kit (#1), get cut off and replaced with the Sumitomo 8 pin, female connectors and the two connectors (#2) get cut off and replaced with the Sumitomo 2 pin, male connectors. I see that (#4) on the HID kit goes to the factory harness. Where does that connect? Does it connect only to one of the original wire connectors that went to the original headlight (driver's side) and the other original wire connector (passenger side) does not get anything connected to it?
