Hey everyone. I put in some silver stars about 6 months ago. The driver side light went out so I put the stock ones back in. About 3 weeks the driver side light went out again, I went and baught some cheap lights from Canadian tire and today the driver side went out again. Theres obviously something wrong in the wiring being a short or something. Any Ideas? Gonna bring it to the dealership this week hopefully. Will it be covered under warranty. Its just over 1 year old. Thanks!

Yes, it wil be covered under warranty. I doubt you have 36,000 miles on it in over a year. The SilverStar's should not have burned out like cheap after-market "Xenon" clones can. It is a short for sure.

Braught it in today. Yes there was a short a wire had come partially out of the head light harness and was shorting out. Also got the vibration issue fixed up too, there putting in a new rear axle.

You got Silverstar headlight bulbs 6 months ago? Didn't they just get released, in the H13/9008 bulb, within the last month? Isn't that the bulb # these trucks use?

Not a big deal, and glad they got you sorted out, but are you sure they were really Silverstars you had?

Can anyone confirm the part number for the Silverstars for the Dakota? I want to get these. I had them in two of my previous trucks and was very pleased with the results.

I have serched all over for the H13 Silverstar. last i have heard there is no silverstar H13 bulb. I have seen the H13XV from selvenia. I think there is something going on with the NTSB cracking down on the bulb makers for making these bulbs.


But if someone knows were to get a silverstar H13 i would love a piar!


on a side note i was think why couldnt they just market them "For Off Road Use Only" and be able to sale them?

They released the Silverstars in H13 within the last month or two. I much prefer the Xtravisions myself. Just as bright, work MUCH better in the wet, last longer and are cheaper. They don't have the blue coating to filter out yellow light though, so they aren't as "pretty".

They also work better for deer spotting for IMO. Why would you want to filter out the yellow? It's closer to the color of animals you are on the lookout for! OK, maybe not if you live in Muppet country...

I'm hopping that someone will put out a complete HID kit that includes the total modular replacement, Lens/reflector/lamp/ballast. This would be the only way I would go for HID. I will buy the Silver Star in the meantime and that may be forever.
