I have a 03 Ion and I tried installing my HIDs. I get them both in and then only one bulb works. When I turn the hi beam on the bulb that didnt work now works. If someone can please explain to me how I can get them to work I would very much appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

If that doesnt work, flip the connecter going into the ballast over so that the polarities are reversed. Thats how my old kit worked for some reason.

What is the listed "Bulb Type" is it 9006 or 9007.......if its 9006 then your going to have to cut and re-crimp after switching two wires.....but thats only for Bi-Xenons.....can't imagine that would affect 1 light working on low and 1 not working on low.......

Well when we hooked out ballast to the factory harness to power them some times we had to turn them on a off once or twice to get them to light up. Its like you have enough power running threw the factory harness all the time to power them. So when you flick it off and back on it kind I guess jumps start them.
