    Where to plug in for HID harness

    I have had some difficulty locating the Hi/Lo connection harness or whatever for my car... I have a DDM Tuning HID kit I'm trying to install. I have the relay harness and the separate Hi/Lo connector harness... I just can't find where to tap into the car's Hi/Lo factory connection?

    Here are some pics of what I'm dealing with...

    You can only really connect your factory harness to the provided harness one way. You will have one side of your factory headlight plug (usually the passenger side) not connected to anything. They will still work.

    I tried that... they don't work. What I'm asking, I suppose, is where to tap into so that I can turn the headlights Hi/Lo functions on/off.

    I don't know if I am making any sense here.... it's not about where to get the power/grounds. It's where to get the connection from the factory so that they work like normal headlights and I can turn them on/off from inside the cabin like you would normally.

    I need the factory H13 Hi/Lo beam connector location...

    Judging by picture #5, that looks to be it right there. Youre going to have one side plugged into the HID harness, and one side just hanging. Are the lights not coming on at all, or are they not switching between Hi/Lo beam?

    You should only need to plug into the green connector that comes off the original light bulb. This will provide your Hi/Lo functionality

    My mistake was trying to locate a connector that looks like the one in the pictures... one that would fit the HID kit connection... but what I found was that amp clamp thing that goes around a battery cable by the battery tray... that's what is in my pictures. Although it looks like it would/should fit my HID harness, it's obviously the wrong kind of connection lol

    So I need to do this for both sides? I was under the impression one side had the Hi/Lo connection?

    Like in the pictures here:

    Exactly, only one side has the Hi/Lo connection. Think of that connection as a control. All it does is tell the relay that you want hi beams, and the relay clicks on the hi beams.

    Yea, I understand... I used to have a Hi/Lo HID setup on my Jeep which had 9007 dual filament bulbs for Hi/Lo, etc. Only, for that, one side had the connection control for the Hi/Lo function and I just plugged the HID kit plug into it. What I'm trying to say is that I cannot find that plug for my Cruze...
