i just bought a set of 35watt 6000K dual beam HID's from the local china shop, For my 2009 ford ranger sport. It was all plug and play so i set to work after a while i finally got them to turn on, and thye worked fine, however ftr i got in my truck drove ot the store and got out i noticed both the lights were off.
I found out from someone that they might not be getting the right amount of power, due to the fact they were just plugged into the factory harness. So i went back to the store and found out they sold a seperate wiring harness to power the lights.
The problem was it was made for a 9004, so i had to splice the wires. So i did and used a set of butt conectors for the splice. The other flaw was that it needed 2 grounds, and a power spot, i hooked the positive to the terminal in the fuse box, and the first ground i hooked up with the batteries ground, on the header panel. As for the second ground i couldn't locate a good spot so i just bolted it down with the bolt that holds my horn in place, surprise surpirse i get nothing out of the lights now. does anyone have any ideas. or does it sound like the lights are fried. I'm new to this auto wiring stuff it was probably my stupid grounds but i just thought i'd ask to see if anyone else has any good ideas first. also does anyone know if theres any good factory ground spots near the passenger side driving lights.
here is a pick of the full kit you can see the splice wrapped in the blue butt connectors.
