Lighting issue NEED HELP

Ok I have a 02 GT and when I bought it they had put the HID bulbs for brights.. Well yesterday I changed out my battery wire connectors because they were rusted and stuck to the post and one of my bolts went under the headlight.. I pulled the headlight out enough to get it and put it right back.. Now neither one of my lights on the driver side are coming on! What the deal with that? And then my dash isn't lighting up as bright as need it to be.. I can barely see it.. Please help

Re: Lighting issue NEED HELP

the HID lights require a ballast to power them, the ballast is powered from the battery generally, make sure that connection is still being made else they have no power and they cant work.
