Hid install

I just installed my hids and they are surprising dull. I don't know if it is how I wired them or what but they don't even light up the road enough to see if there aren't street lights. Are ideas on what it could be?

What kit are you using?

Are you using a relay harness?

I wired them into my low beam. I'm guessing that's wrong

Ok you need to get a harness to plug into the ballasts that will wire directly to the battery and ground to the body.

these harnesses also have one plug that will connect to one of the factory hesdlight plugs that will act as a trigger when the headlights are turned on.

Hid kit installed and working perfectly.

Any chance you could post some pics of the kit and how/where you have it wired?
