Mobilio RS Headlights :

Ever since the Mobilio RS was launched I was in desperate search for getting a pair of RS lamps for my Amaze. I once went to the Honda Showroom to book a set and for my shock each one was costing around 16K back then. It was too much money put into an headlight which just has a Bi-Xenon projectors with a normal Halogen bulb. Walked off from the showroom in hope of finding a used pair soon. I almost searched around 2 years on different markets around India. Searched all spare parts shops and aftermarket spares shop in hope of finding a similar pair with a cheaper price tag, say anything under 30K would do. Even the cheap looking knock off headlights was costing around 26K back then. Even tried reaching out to some firms from Indonesia hoping this would be cheap there and could import it, but that also ended miserably since these headlights costed almost the same in Indonesia after conversion. Years passed by though the search was never stopped until I came across an ad from Kochi on Olx. He was running these RS lamps on his petrol amaze and he sold the car and hence selling these separately. He was running an aftermarket LED's on this and I bought this all together from him. [;)]

Happiness does come in big packages!

MRP is 17172 for a single unit and then GST(28%), would easily cross 40K price range.[frustration]

He even gave me a pair of stock halogen bulbs with the package. Not using it anyway!

Unominda Headlight wiring to properly wire this thing up, a plug & play is what we were planning to do.

This is how it looks with the LED bulb in place, all tucked in perfectly.

We had a hard time wiring this thing up. Amaze headlights are negative controlled and the positive being common. We tried to wire this thing on the first and we blow a fuse and a bulb. Went to Honda and replaced the bulb and fuse.

All neatly tucked in, waiting to get ripped minutes later [frustration] Apparently the Mobilio RS has a different BCM unit which allows this projector lamps to work fine.

More info on the Boslla Led :

Model name : Bullet B4
It's a Tricolor LED with 3 different temperature scale. The White color is 6500K, Warm is 4300K, Yellow is 3000K. It even has an SOS mode which will basically turn the headlights to look like Hazard light, which I felt very annoying.Here's a picture for reference. 4300K is the closest temperature setting to that of Halogen lamps. Felt it pretty good since I'm running on stock fog lamps and it's yet to be upgraded.

One of our trickiest works, gave sleepless nights and three complete redoes of wiring kit, due to one simple ulta-pulta wiring of Honda. Common for high/low was positive, instead of grounding and that too powered up only when headlight is on. High and low were switched with negative. Each of the kit tested on Beat and even FZ before fitting, but showed no sign of life on Amaze. We even stripped the Amaze once and installed lights and had to revert to stock light because of this issue. Blown fuse of Amaze, which we couldn't sort out as there was no proper designation chart in the car. Finally, sorted out the third time.

Though there was umpteen installs on Brio and Amaze in Indonesia and a few in India, there was no detail or slight clue on installation anywhere on world wide web and on inquiry with fellow Kerala guys, all were done by a single shop in Cochin and needs a whole day. Called up the guy who sold it and he said it was done at the same place and wiring was almost the same way I did. They did soldering, we did a 100% plug and play job with no wire cut.

Pin out connection of the RS head lamp.

Wiring diagram. Hope it will help the future installers. Last issue we faced was headlight not turning off. Positive for shutter was fed directly from the battery. Once the high beam is on, the connection completed through the shutter coil and remained on even after cutting supply, had to disconnect from battery each time. Sorted out by connecting to the stock headlight connector.

The second iteration of the plug and play kit. Note the connection taken from the other side as the LH side conked off due to blown fuse, which we had no clue. In third version, tapped from the LH side itself.

Testing them on Beat. Third time, @vishnu vichu insisted on wiring and testing on Amaze only and sort out.

Dunno how many times we bought these clips. At least 30 of them bought.

IMG_20200716_100752.jpg


Indicator wire length was short. We made a custom plug-n-play extension for that also and one to tap park light connection. Not even a single stock wire touched. Only headlamp leveler left, for which we need some male clips and the pinout.

Oh yes! It's as simple as it can get.
Turn on the headlights and you'll be by default in White light(6500K). Switch OFF and ON within 5 seconds and you'll go to the next light setting, that is Warm(4300K), do this again and you'll be on the next setting, Yellow(3000K) and following the SOS lights.
Turn off the lights for 5 seconds and you'll be going back to the default setting, that is the White light. You can even Force Reset by quickly switching 3 times and it also will revert you back to the default White light. [;)]
