HID Fog light HELP!

im trying to install my HID fog light kit and i cannot get them to work. i replaced the bulbs as you can see in the picture these are my new bulbs and ive mounted the ballast but i dont know what im doing wrong.. should i be connecting the OEM wire directly into the ballast? and there are too of the bigger female and male ends that i dont know where to attach.. can someone try to explain or help me?

ballast


i dont know where the 2 big plugins go...(one is at the top other is at the bottom)

this is for headlights but will give you what you need..

You should have a set of wires that goes to your stock headlight plugin
and 2 sets of wires that will plug into the ballast.

ok i think i understand but let me see just to make sure... soo you went small bulb connections to ballast and then you used the battery chord and connected the long make end of the batter chord into the passenger ballast and the short batter male end into the dirver side ballast and plugged the OEM connector into the female end connected to the bulb? along with battery connecting
