    im trying to install my HID fog light kit and i cannot get them to work. i replaced the bulbs as you can see in the picture these are my new bulbs and ive mounted the ballast but i dont know what im doing wrong.. should i be connecting the OEM wire directly into the ballast? and there are too of the bigger female and male ends that i dont know where to attach.. can someone try to explain or help me?

    this is my kit the skinny male an female off the bulb pluged into the male an female connects off the ballast , then the one wide end plugs stright into the ballast then the long wired one pluged into the other ballast ( from the passenger side over to the driver side) then battery wire to battery an ground to ground! i have the one male connect just hanging on the driver side cause thats where the long one pluged in!

    ok i think i understand but let me see just to make sure... soo you went small bulb connections to ballast and then you used the battery chord and connected the long make end of the batter chord into the passenger ballast and the short batter male end into the dirver side ballast and plugged the OEM connector into the female end connected to the bulb? along with battery connecting
