i got my raptor hid's from ddm tuning today. i went to hook them up and they dont even work. i called the guys at ddm tuning they said i had to hook like the main wire harness from the headlight upside down??? that still didnt work. then they told me i have to send them back now. So before i send them back does anybody have a clue if or what i did wrong? thanks

Positive and Negative are switched on our trucks apparently so take the plug on the ballast side, turn it over and plug it in again. This means that it looks like your plugging it in wrong. It will not "clip" into place. Make sure you try that before you send them back. Almost all kits have this problem, there just wired backwards from our trucks.

I have had 2 sets in my lows, one I had to reverse, one I didn't, I think its just luck of the draw on the kit.

yea i tried them the right way were the harnest clips together. that didnt work so then i tried it backwards, upside down whatever and it still didnt work. So for the hell of it we pulled the new fog lights out of the box to test them and see if they worked and those didnt work either? idk if something happend to them during shipping or what? but im most likely gonna send em back tomorrow but its gonna take a while to get em back because they have to be ground shipped from south carolina all the way to california and back. man im pissed!

Ok...do you have the relay? Have you checked your low headlight fuse? Are you leaving one side unplugged?

we tried fucking everything! i mean me and my dad arent electrician experts or whatever by anymeans but we just tried everything we could think of and everything the guys from ddm could think of. It was the raptor hid's so i dont know if that has anything to do with it?
