    How did u connect it?

    NOt sure if it is the same but I bought the Bi-xenon: 9003/H4/HB2 from them and the instruction sheet that included was WRONG.



    They email me with the correct connections


    orange/black outputs: go to ballasts
    blue/black outputs: go to bixenon solenoids
    H4 input: goes to the output on the car closer to the car battery
    Positive terminal: to car battery +
    Negative terminal: to car battery -
