HID low beams not working?

I just installed new halo headlights with HID low beams, but they won't turn on. Everything else does except the low beam. I plugged them color for color, red with red and black with black and grounded any grounding wires. What could be wrong?

Unplug the new setup, plug the old one back in...
If problem persists, it's obvious where the problem lies.

Try switching the ballasts around.

Re: HID low beams not working?

Harness to ballast is PNP, but the part where you connect the wire to the ballast that the other end would lead to the bulb is the issue. That part can be inserted both ways inwhich you would have to unplug that part and rotate and reinsert n then turn on your lights to see! I'm sure that should be the issue bc I did that when installin the HID to my girls car! LMFAO!
