Help with hid's in a yj

I recently installed projector headlights and hid's into my jeep. I got them working just fine, however the high beams do not work. The kit i got was designed for typical H4 headlight cars, and i guess they have seperate plugs for high beams and low beams. I was wondering if anybody knew where i could splice the wires from the high beam plugs to get the high beams working.

double-check to make sure you got the dual beam HID kit

if you didn't get the dual beam kit they won't ever work. high beam comes from the same plug that goes right into the factory headlight. a dual beam kit will usually have two ballasts per headlight from the kits i have done in the past

I did get the dual beams. I have two ballasts. The problem is that the normal connectors for the h4 kit is different from how my headlights connect.

did you do the relay mod?
if not you should seriously consider doing it
your stock switch can't handle it.
and will burn out.

dont look at a connector as a permanent or even a necessary thing. all connectors are just a convenience. you have to have a multimeter and know what each wire does. after this it will be obvious.
