    Girlfriend got me an Xtreme HID kit from xenondepot.http://www.kbcarstuff.com/HID-Kits-s/216.htm
    for our anniversary.

    6500K Hi/low beam
    3000K Fog

    I got everything hooked up, but the passenger side refuses to shine!

    Connection to ballast-check
    Connection to factory plug-check

    I don't need to ground the passenger side right? Only the driver side with the battery (obviously driver side cause it works..)

    I performed identical procedure on the passenger side as I did the driver side, only thing I didn't do was connect to the postive battery terminal and ground to the body, cause well, there just aint a battery on my passenger side... do I need to make a connection from passenger side to driver side?

    Ran out of time today but could switching the ballast's do the trick? They're both the same, negative and postive battery connections on each ballast/relay connection. Maybe a bad bulb? Bad ballast? Maybe the bulb isn't fully connected? Psh... I dunno... just wanted to know what you guys thought. Sorry for the hasal
