Unhappy Another HID problem

I read through every HID article, and couldn't find a write-up on how to install this type of HID. I recently Purchased HID hi/lo kit from HALOAutomotive.com. It was supposedly Plug and Play. but i plugged everything in, pretty much idiot proof. and the ballast's wouldn't even turn on. So i swapped the male prongs from the hid harness around and reconnected it to the factor 3 prong harness, and the hid's work. But... When i select high beam, the lights flicker out. i think they are on high when i have my lights selected in low. i have no grounds running or any relays. just beefed up fuses in the stock fuse slots. Is there anyone out there with a tech write-up, or can tell me how to wire these correctly. its an 04 taco. with H4's haloauto kit. Thanks in advance guys.

No expert here, but you might want to run a seperatre wire from the battery to the HID's. They sell a harness that will go from the battery to the ballasts and include the relay. I would not use the factory wires asit was not designed for a HID ballast.

Like I said, no expert just have some posts about HIDS.

You never want to change the fuses to a higher amperage... Your truck is gonna get lit up.

Well, the directions say to switch to a 20amp fuse for each light instead of 10, cause it won't run good off 10. should i switch back? thanks for the input.

Put back to stock fuses. Get a harness if you're worried that it will fail on you.

Relay harness. So that it draws power directly from the battery.

My buddies did that when we were installing his, problem was just a bad ground. After getting a good ground all worked well!
