Angry 7th gen eBay halo projector w/ HIDs pre installed

I bought halo projector headlights for my 7th gen civic on eBay with pre installed HIDs. I got them in and the instructions are shitty. The headlights have two connectors on the back, one red wire and one black wire. My civic has three connectors on the stock lights. What do I do? I know the red and black wire goes to battery and I need to mount the ballast but how do I hookup the rest seeing as my car has one extra connector? Thanks! Any instructions, pictures, wiring diagrams would help a lot!

Did it come with any relays? Do you know how to hook something up if you had a schematic?

Your OEM headlight wires should trigger a relay that is connected to the battery and the ballasts.

Re: 7th gen eBay halo projector w/ HIDs pre installed

So you bought crappy "projector" headlights on ebay with HIDs in them. They also came with crappy instructions. Who would have figured? Instead of having amazing light output and cutoff with a REAL retrofit you went with garbage so you'll still blind people because the projectors will be crap and your light output will be terrible.

Step 1: Return "projector" headlights
Step 2: Go to theretrofitsource.com and buy a REAL projector
Step 3: Install and enjoy.
