That white van has HID low beams. Not sure what else needs to come with, but more than just the headlamp assemblies.

Yes they fit! They come from 2008-2010 town and country vans which I believe were only equipped on the Limited version.

The plugs on the lights are the same, the HID error cancel devices are mounted to the bottom of the headlight assembly, so based on my knowledge, these are plug and play.

Nope, they're not. Forgot to mention the plug is different. The HIDs use a 5-pin connector... with only 2 pins used. Be sure to grab that when you get the lights.

And enable HID in AlfaOBD to prevent it from zapping your new ballasts with the halogen bulb check signal. Not required, but it will last longer if you do.

I have ordered headlights online for my 2013 T&C that were supposed to fit several years. The headlights i received didn't fit.

2008-2017? (end of T&C production) HID lights are the same IIRC

How?

The 2008+ Town & Country headlights are all the same shape/mounting points.

In addition, 2011+ Caravan headlights are also the same.

Makes it seem like 2008 onwards through the end of the model. It's just '08-'10 and 2011+.

I'm not sure I understand what you are saying here?

5th gen minivans (2008-2020) have 3 different headlights for North America:
  • Halogen:
    • 2008+ Town & Country and 2011+ Grand Caravan
    • 2008-2010 Grand Caravan
  • HID:
    • 2008+ Town & Country

Parts sellers are confused about the 2011 refresh. I used "2008-2010" Town & Country headlights for the retrofits for my parents 2011 Caravan with zero issues.

The exterior shape of the headlights is different. To swap between '08-'10 (square) and 2011+ (rounded) you need to also swap the bumper to match the headlights.

The T&C always had the same shape throughout 5th gen. The Grand Caravan adopted it in 2011. Black bezel started in '14.

Funny... Could've swore I saw the square style on the T&C, but I can't find any trying to find them now. :unsure:

So that goes back to 4 types because the '08-'10 and '11+ HIDs are the same then. Though Michalb mentioned a different connector type, so maybe that part of them is different.

Headlight design only changed for the Caravans.

Oh right, the black bezels, forgot about those. There were factory halogen black bezel headlights, and there were black housing HID headlights shown on a concept, but they didn't make it to production as far as I know.

Can't speak to wire harness differences, but the halogen headlights wouldn't have any differences I don't think across all years. The HID connector may have changed however.
