I would just unplug the top white plug. It disables the halos

It's what the halos connect to on the inside of the headlight and that's connected to the power plug

The ballast is what usually burns out. I opened my lights up and cheked the if the halo
was burnt. It wasn't cuz I unplugged it from the ballast and plugged it to the eyebrow ballast and it worked but it's not as strong to power it
