Halogen lights run on 55 watts of continuous power. The HID lighting system runs on 35 watts. HID ballast start up requires
a higher current load of 25 AMPS for the first 5-10 seconds depending on the brand of your HID system. The factory 20
AMP fuse is sufficient to operate the HID lights, DF does not recommend increasing the fuse load. A properly connected
HID system will never blow the fuse. The factory HID on the 2002+ NSX runs on 20 AMP fuses. If your fuses are burning
out you need to check your wiring for a possible short or wiring that is too small.
There are several WARNING sections in the installation. Always read and follow the instruction to prevent
injuries, accidents, and possible damage to the vehicle.
Always disconnect the battery's main terminal before performing any electrical related work to prevent accidental
injuries or damages.
Do not power the HID ballast without a bulb, the high voltage system will arc at the socket area and possibly
damage or hurt someone.
