Help! HID Light Kit Problems
I'm having some trouble installing my H13 hid kit in my '07 F-350. I'm using a relay harness for it. I have it installed (as best as I can tell), exactly to the specifications on the wiring diagram on the inside of the box. However, when the low-beams are supposed to turn on, nothing works. Then when the hi-beams are switched on, they work 100%. Once the high-beams are switched off, everything turns off and no low-beams work. I do believe that when the high-beams are switched on, the low-beams turn on as well. Just because when the high-beams are switched off, the high beams turn off instantly, and there's a 0.5 second delay before the low-beams also turn off.
This same thing happens regardless of whether I pull the turn signal backwards (temporary high-beams) or push the turn signal away (toggle high-beams).
I really don't understand what could be wrong with it. Both ground wires wired to the the universal 9006 plugs on the relay harness are being used. The red positive terminal with the fuse seems to be connected to the positive battery terminal correctly. I'm using the passenger-side battery, as the truck has 2 batteries. I'm only using 1 of the original adaptors that's in the truck (because I want to use the relay, not just pnp). I'm using the one on the passenger side. Everything else seems to be hooked up properly as well. It's not like I had to fight to install it. It seemed easy.
Help! Keep in mind I'm bad with electrical work, so please use the easiest terms possible to explain lol. Thanks!
