LED Washer Nozzle Installation

This installation is designed to be done on a vehicle with factory nozzles mounted in the hood.

In your nozzle light kit you will find these parts:

  • 2 Nozzle Light LEDs
  • 2 Nuts
  • 2 Washers and/or gromets

First, you will have to remove your old washer nozzles.

After the old nozzles are removed, you can now install the LED nozzles. The LED nozzles will have 2 wires each, one black and one red. Run these through the hood. Then puch the nossle LEDs thorugh the opening left in the hood by the old nozzles. Secure the LED form the underside of the hood with the washer, gromet, and nut. Tighten the nut securely.

Once both of the LEDs have been mounted, snap the fluid hosings onto the new LED nozzles.

Run the wires coming from the LED nozzles on the underside of the hood to the side of the vehicle. The first step is to ground the 2 black wires. This can be done anywhere in the engine bay. Make sure you ground the wires to the vehicle chassis. You want to run the red wire down the the headlights. Run the left nozzle wire to the right headlight, and visa-versa. You have two options in wiring the red wires for the nozzles.

Option one - Remove the vehicle's headlight wire. This is the wire that supplies the headlight with power. Using a voltmeter, locate the wire within this harness that is powered then the headlights are on. You want to connect the red nozzle wire to this wire in some fashion. Make sure that your connection is completely waterproof. This wiring option will turn the nozzle LEDs on when the headlights are turned on.

Option two - Remove the vehicle's turn signal harness. Turn the blinker on, and using a voltmeter locate the wire that is powered when the blinker flashes. Wire the nozzle's red wire to this wire. Make sure that your connection is completely waterproof. This will make the nozzles flash in conjunction with the blinkers.

That's it! You have now successfully installed a set of LED Nozzle lights.
