Default HID high and low

i install my bi-xenon hid yesterday and they work great. but my problem is that when my truck is on low beans the light is on high and when i switch to high the light goes to low. that might not be a problem with some people but i got hids in my fogs too so you know when you go to highs the fogs go out, so can somebody help me figure out how to make it so when i switch to high my lights are high and when im on low my lights are low?

i thinks so. i got two wires form the light connected to the ballast, the third wire form the light to the relay, a resistor on both of the original light plug and one of those connected to the relay, the relay is plug into both ballasts and i got the relay to the positive side of the battery and to ground.

im thinking that they cross my wires on my relay. like when my relay is pluged into the original plug that the relay high wire is connected to my original low wire and the relay low is connected to my orginial high. so do anybody know which is the positive wires on the original plug so i can switch the wires on the relay plug? the wire on the original plus is a white one with a green stripe, a black one, and a white one with a blue stripe

This is not the first time this has happened.

Your connection has three wires, the middle is ground the outer is low beam and high beam.
Switch the outer two wires.

My kit had this problem and others aswell.

Agree with this, probably just need to swap your wires
