    Just follow my diagram in my photo bellow...

    On the factory fog plug (This is the plug you will disconnect from your factory fog bulbs)

    Solid Green Wire side is + Positive ~ The red copper lead slides into the Green wire contact on factory fog plug

    White/Black Wire side is - Negative ~ The black copper lead slides into the White/Black wire contact on the factor fog plug

    Oh and you don't need those black rubber grommets...Just carefully cut them away from the wires and pull them off

    I don't know if you have already done the install, but I've got DDM HIDs in my fogs and, as far as wiring them up, its real easy to do.

    Unplug your factory fogs and unplug and pull out the wires without a connector off the DDM ballast (the plug/wires on the left side of blazze2005 pic) you will not be needing these anymore. The factory plug should plug directly into the ballast. Test them out, and it should work.

    Hopefully this makes some sense. If not, I'll try and get a picture of my setup sometime.

    thanks for the offers and help guys..
    well i just installed the bulbs......really had to push hard to get them in but they are in...
    then i cut out the red and black spaded terminal wires and rubber gromet... then checked them they worked...
    now i was thinking about mounting the one ballast on the battery is that a good idea or no??? to hot?>/?

    update finished...works great and looks even better.....
    they should tell you that you do not need the red and black wires......would have made life much easier....
    thanks guys.....
    now i will order the headlight hids soon
