    Hey everyone , I recently mounted two Hella 700ff's behind my grille and when I went to wire them up I had no luck! I followed the wiring diagram but for some reason the switch will not light up and the lights will not work. I've ran the yellow and green wite from the switch but instead of going green to high beams I just grounded it out because I want to run them on the switch only. Any help on why these aren't working?

    Was the green that you grounded supposed to be tapped into the negative or positive of your hi beam?
    I'm gonna guess it was supposed to be to the positive?
    Take the green wire and run that one to your switch

    I ran the green to my battery. My switch doesn't light up either but I did notice that the if the wires on the back of the switch aren't in the exact spot nothing works. I didn't tap into my headlights at all and the lights work with the switch only. Shoot me a pm with your number and I'll call you if you need any assistance
