HID Troubleshooting

I just put a set of Hi/Lo Hids in my 2001 Ex yesterday. The Hi beam light on the dash stays on all the time now. Any ideas on this?

When you push the switch forward, does the indicator go out?

No it stays on all the time when the headlights are on. I also put single Hid in my foglights. Don't know if that would have anything to do with it.

You've got a ground issue somewhere. Make sure both ballasts are grounded really good.
