Glad to see someone else has the same issue. I didnt even get a nice harness like that one to plug into my headlight socket. What came with mine was the three-wire harness that plugged into a sealed-beam style adapter, then went to four wires: two white for low beam, and two blue for high beam. Apparently on that section, Todd said it doesnt matter which you plug as ground or + on each, but if its backward the high beams may not work. He then said it may be easier just to take that portion off, cut the 3-wire-plug off, and tap the white, blue, and ground wires into the factory plug using the quick splices, which I did.
That odd four-wire harness had a capacitor on it. However, when I discovered the problem with the high beams, I spliced it back on trying to troubleshoot and it gave me no luck there. I didnt even notice if it solved the issue with not turning on at all, so I may have to explore that route again.
Funny that we're having the same issue with the high beams. I cannot get anything to change when I flip the switch. It seems that its all high beam all the time. My high indicator on the dash doesnt stay lit all the time though. It will turn on when I push the stalk, but nothing changes with light output. I've been testing all sorts of things - I've swapped high and low leads (since they were just quick spliced it was easy) with no luck. Actually, if I only connect high or low beams without the other, I at least get some kind of reaction because the light itself will turn off when I select whatever setting is missing.
I also tried plugging my old bulb into the socket with the kit installed, and it would stay on high beam even in low as well. Except when I switched to high it would go out. Same on both sides.
This is frustrating me to no end, since I would like to have normal functionality. I had to drive last night and I had to point my headlights almost straight down to not blind anyone.
I ordered a couple male-to-female H13 connectors to cut apart and try attaching to this kit so I have full plug-and-play compatibility. I do not like have just quick splices connecting the three wires from the kit to the three on my headlight harness
