HID help please!!

Hey guys i ordered two kits from ddm tuning and started by installing the headlights. Got them in and there working good but i do have one small problem which im sure is an easy fix i just dont know what it could be and was wondering if anyone else had the problem. I got a hi low kit and put in the harness they supply with it for the hi low conversion i guess. When i run my lights there is no fog lights on low beam and the high beam indicator always stays lit. When it is in low beam the indicator is lightly lit but still on the high beams come on and there is little diffrence and the idicator lights up like normal? Any clues or help would be great

Switch the red and white wires going into the blue plug.

That'll fix that (or it should).

That's correct. Kinda strange that the blue plug came already pre-assembled. Both my kits didn't come like that. Black is in the middle... that's a definite. The red and white wires? I don't remember which is on which side, and I'm too lazy to remove the headlight to find out for you. lol

yea it came pre wired. I switched the two red and white and it fixed that probelm but while driving tonight i was informed that my high beams are my low beams and my low is my high beams. I assume its the plug again. Black in the middle is a definte then ill switch it cuz i think white is in the middle and black on the left.

Side note:
This configuration is if you're looking at the WIRE side and not the plug side (if that makes sense).
