    Help with HID install!!!

    Well my halos with 8000k HID came in today. Got everything in and hooked up the way i thought it should go and the headlights do not work. The halos work(spliced into fogs) and when I turn on the high beams they work(they are not HID) There is a random connector in the box that has 2 ends that look like they plug in to something but I do not know what. And of course they came with NO DIRECTIONS..believe me I sent a nice email to the ebay seller! I have no clue when it comes to this stuff and any help is appreciated here are some picss

    Top wire is the one I have no clue about

    Make sure you adjust them down some when you are done. If yours are like mine, they were like super brights before adjusting and I got flashed by just about everyone before I tipped them down. They were like retina burning bright before.

    The extra wires that come w/ it, they look like extensions, must be hooked up as well man, just connect the male ends to the female ends. This happened to me, easy mistake...

    You'll see two phillips head adjusting screws. One in the middle at the top of the bracket and the other on the side. Just pull up to a brick wall or something at night and start making the adjustments.

    Yeah, I don't know that that top wire is supposed to be for. My kit did not include this. Just pluged the lights into the ballast, adn then plugged the ballast to the stock headlight wiring.
