you might have wired it wrong, if you look at this pic you can see the order in which the wires go you might have the red and white? wire mixed up

The kit i bought is 2 bulbs and 2 ballast. the bulbs telescope in and out. and the balast are working correctly. i'll check the connector first see if maybe the two are switched. would that cause the problem i'm having tho

sounds like the wires in the blue socket are in the wrong spots. They can be pulled out using a pick and put in the proper spot pretty easily. just be gentle.

Also When U click high beam to low beam, make sure u can here the solenoid move, Usually a click, if not U probably have the wires for the 9007's in the wrong spot (high/low/ground), I know I had to move mine around when I installed mine. I have a set of the high/low in my truck.

Alrite. Also, there is a small black wire on mine, two wires together sorry, that go from the bulb to something, i'll have a look at mine, it controls the blub movement. I'll post pics tomorrow of it, that has to be connected to work.

Thanks Jonno for the help. It was just the wires in the wrong spots on the blue connector moved them around and no more high beam indicator on and both beams are working.
