Default help installing HID's

I got my kit today and it didn't come with any instructions, well it did, but they are no help. So far I got this much

the ballast and bulb


got this part


I'm guessing when you disconnect the halogen bulb, you take the wire that was hooked up to it, and put it into this right?



but where do these wires go?

thats strange the bulb has extra connectors?? never seen that, not sure what that male 9006 connector and those other 2 smaller wires are for. all HID kits I have seen the bulbs all just have the connectors going to the ballast (the two you connected) and the factory plug/or harness plug (if you have one) into the ballast. bulbs have never had more than those two connectors. Wierd. Is this some sort of special kit?

is it one of those make shift bixenon ones? doesnt look like it, no extra shield or anything. power up the ballasts with the bulbs maybe you dont need them?

your car/harness connector should be going into the ballast, thats what powers wont do anything hooked up with the bulb connector as its not a 12v source
