    I was just wondering if I have to connect the line with the fuse directly to the positive side of the battery or if I can put it to any positive line? Also I was wondering if anyone has any pics of there install showing where they put all there wires and ballast. I searched and found some pictures but couldn't find any that really showed full detail of where everything goes.
    Thanks

    Ok I managed to hook up the headlights and they seem to be working ok. I didn't hook it up directly to the battery I just put it to another hot line. I did have a problem with the fog lights though I can't get them to work I switched the ballasts but they still don't work. So I just put back my stocks and the stocks work so I think there is a problem with the bulbs or the ballast. Also are the ballast supposed to be making a buzzing noise.
    Thanks

    The ballasts will make a buzzing noise till their are fully warmed up. Also some HID's you buy. They will have reversed polarity. All you have to do is switch out the wires on the connection the red/black usually
