If you are talking about the wires you plug into the blue plastic thing, you really have to guess. Mine came orange, blue and white. Look on ddm's website for which one should be ground, hi and low. Ground is the middle, not sure on the other two, i just swapped wires til it worked right since the wires were not labeled in any way. Orange or white ended up being ground for me

With the flat side down and the 3 holes making a V shape, the black will be in the middle and ground, red is on the left and hi beam, white is on right and low beam.... Hope that makes sense, if not, pm me your cell # and i can text u a couple pictures

Go to ddmtuning.com... download their instructions, it's a pdf file. Look at the picture I gave you above... that is how it should be wired up.. it's straight off their website. If it doesn't work one way... play around with switching the wires up... test it every time until it works. It's not that difficult.

Yeah you're probably gonna have to play guess and check at this point if they have multiple wire colorings. Wire them the same on both sides in the plug, if they aim high on low beam and low on high beam, just switch the two outside wires on both harnesses. The middle plug is a ground.

Its my 3rd set of hids. The slim kit I have is junk, hi/low are backwards but I guess its a common problem in the 35w.
