HID kit hi/lo help

Received my HID kit from DDM tuning today and realized i ordered the H13 hi/lo even though i ended up deciding on just sticking with the 9008 single beam i guess i forgot to change the kit in my shopping cart by accident. Now i have the H13 with extra positive and ground wire coming from the bulb? what are these two wires for and where should they go? thanks

There should only be one positive wire. That's the one that has the inline fuse and you connect it to the battery. Then it runs to a relay which runs to one ballast. Both ballast should have a ground wire, you need to ground both ballasts. There should also be a additional 2 pin plug that controls the hi/lo function, but that is plug and play just like the 2 wires going from the light to the ballast.

Sorry but im a little lost here. I have the regular plug and play ends but i have one red and one black wire both hanging from the bulb as well. Are you saying i have to buy a fuse and extra wire to hook these up? I dont mind losing the hi/lo function in the process

That red and black, does it have a plug at the end? If it does it should have a 3 flat edges and a half moon on the last edge. If it looks like that then it will be the plug that controls the hi/lo function. There should be a female plug on your truck that looks the same way.

Okay. Those prongs have to go into you existing plug from your truck. I'm not sure why your came to you like that. My kit came with a plug instead that you plug into the trucks headlight harness.

I'm sorry, I just saw this. But does the bigger plug fit your trucks 05 headlight bulb?
