    I have a 2010 tacoma and i installed bi-xenon hids in to factoryheadlight. After installing every thing I found that i have no lowbeams, I have hi beams but not low. I checked the polarity and allthe grounds I have had no luck finding out what is going on.
    I have been looking for the answer for a while and i see post in here that are close but they have not been the fix.

    This happened to me yesterday with my retrofit. I called trs and Matt had me switch the high beam connector with the connector going to the ballast.

    The blue and black plug was originally going to my high beams. Matt had me plug it to the ballast and the Orange and black plug go to my highs.

    Yeh, the wires coming out of my projectors for my high beams were going to the blue and black plug on the harness. The Orange and black plug was going to the ballast. I switched the blue/black with the Orange/black.

    If that doesn't work try taking some pics of the connections.

    Where did you get them from?

    Can you plug your highs into another plug on the harness?

    Sorry worded it wrong
