Fitting Halo Projector Headlights on a 08-09 Cobalt – YES they work !

We had a customer call yesterday and state that the Halo Projector headlights he bought from us didnt fit his 2008-2009 Chevrolet Cobalt.The customer claimed that the wiring from the projectors wouldnt connect to his factory wiring.

The customer sent us this photo showing the projector light wiring on the left, and the factory wiring that he had on the right. Notice how the two connectors are shaped radically different.

So, just to make sure they fit, we took our project 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt SS Turbo and tested the connection.

Test fitting the Chevrolet Cobalt headlight wiring

Here you can see the factory male plug, plugged into the female projector wiring.

So what happened? Well, the Cobalt factory wiring is somewhat complicated. It is a large harness, that has a quick disconnect, and further down from the quick disconnect is the factory male plug for the headlight bulb. What this customer did, was disconnected his factory wiring harness at the quick disconnect, and assumed that he could connect the headlight wiring to his quick disconnect.

This is not the case. You simply connect the factory plug that connects into the headlight bulb, INTO the wiring of the Halo/Projector. The Halo Projector wiring plugs in just like a headlight bulb!

Its so simple, that most people overlook it !
