PIAA lamps are intended for use solely as auxiliary lighting. Lighting laws vary from state to state. PIAA makes no representation or warranty, either expressed or implied, as to the legality of its products for street use on any vehicle or in any location. PIAA lamps are designed to improve visibility during night time motoring and inclement weather conditions. However, irresponsible use of any auxiliary light can be dangerous and illegal.

How do I mount this light on my vehicle?
All PIAA lamps come complete with installation instructions.
My lamps have water in them for the third time, how can I stop this from happening?
Some moisture inside the lamp is normal. The lamp should dry out after a few minutes of operation. If it doesn't, check the following:
1) The lens may be upside down. The PIAA name must read right side up so the vent on the bottom can drain.
2) The lens/reflector unit may not be mounted tight against the lamp housing. Loosen, then re-tighten the screws.
3) The gasket may be twisted or pinched. Some gaskets have a vent gap.Make sure it's on the bottom.
4) Lamps with a "Snorkel" type wiring grommet in the back of the housing must have the opening facing down.
5) 9O Pro lamps have a vent on the back of the housing in the center. The opening must be facing down. Water leaks through an obvious gap in the sealant or from a loose lens are defects covered under warranty.
Can I mount my lamps upside down?
PIAA lamps are designed to function properly mounted upright or upside down, as long as a few details are taken into consideration. When mounting your PIAA lamps opposite of their intended installation, remember that lamps with a "Snorkel" type wiring grommet in the back of the housing must have the opening facing down. Also, the PIAA name must read right side up so the vent on the bottom can drain. 9O Pro lamps have a vent on the back of the housing in the center. The opening must be facing down. Proper auxiliary lamp aiming is the most important part of an installation. Refer to the Light Aiming Instructions on this web site for proper alignment.
What is the difference between a fog light & a driving light?
Fog lights provide illumination forward of the vehicle that enhances visibility in fog, rain, snow, or dust. Fog lights are intended to be used in conjunction with standard headlamp low beams. Driving lights are mounted to provide illumination forward of the vehicle and intended to supplement the high beam of a standard headlamp system. It is not intended for use alone or with the low beam of a standard headlamp system.

BULBS,Are these legal?
PIAA 9000 Series Bulbs are DOT/SAE compliant and are street legal in all 50 states and Canada.
Will they fit my vehicle?
The PIAA Application Guide is available to assist you in your bulb selection for newer vehicles.
This is the third bulb to blow out in four months; why does this keep happening?
Bulb failures caused by voltage surges have become more common as new vehicles have placed greater demands on factory electrical systems. The main lamp ground wire must be connected to the battery negative terminal or to a cable leading to it. If a voltage surge occurs, the bulb will look like it was struck by lightning! The metal base & glass will be burnt or the filament will blow up! Refer to the Trouble Shooting section of this web site for more information.
