HID headlights not working: need help

After camping out in the mountains this weekend I ran into a problem. Last night I went to turn my HID headlights on and only the parking lights come on. After playing with the wires I found that by tapping this box they would come on. Im not sure what its called or if anyone has had problems with there lights doing the same thing. I was wondering if I could just buy this piece at radio shack or if I need to order one?
Its the black cube I'm holding that says "Max 40A"


Here is the HID model info
