HI/LOW are reversed HID bi-xenon kit

I've done a little research and I know I'll have to probably do some re-wiring on these.

Should I re-wire off the HID bulb connector or the main lighting harness connector?

Which wires would I be re-wiring? I unfortunately don't have access to a volt meter/test light at all. I'm sure I could borrow one from Auto Zone or something but I just wanted to check on here first.

if the polarities are reversed just swap the hi and low wire on the harness side...at least that's what i did on my last mustang that had that issue.

You can buy a cheap multi meter for less than $10.

Most HID kits today have polarity protection in the ballasts anyway so, you aren't risking an expensive fire any more.

Thanks everyone I fixed it however there were no tabs to lock the wires in place. I think I'll need to replace the spades one of these days. Temporary fix.
