Default VVME HID kit install highbeam problems

first off, i tried to search the forum for an answer the this problem, but couldn't find anything that applied to my situation. so, i'm sorry if this is a repeat.

I just installed an HID kit that i ordered last week from vvme.com. i installed a bi-xenon 9007 4300K kit with one of their bi-xenon relay harnesses. the low beams work fine, and the fog lights still work fine, the main issue starts when i try to turn on the high beams.

with low beams on, fog lights on, the high beams turn on just fine, and the fog lights turn off as expected.
with low beams on, fog lights off, the high beams do not turn on at all.

there is another issue that the interior high beam indicator is always on if the headlights are on at any level, low or high. the light seems to be a bit dimmer when the low beams are on, but it is still clearly illuminated.

all the connectors came pre-assembled from vvme, relay harness included, so i dont believe its a crossed wire unless it was messed up from the vvme factory. all of my grounds are isolated and seem to have pretty good contact, clearly enough to allow the lights to turn on.

one thing i tried was to plug an old halogen bulb into the unused factory headlamp socket. i believe this corrected the problems, but created its own new one with having a random bulb on in the engine compartment. however, i was wondering what anyone thought about jumping the unused headlamp socket to the HID-used socket, so there are no open circuits anymore.

I can be long winded, i know. sorry if this is confusing, but any help is much appreciated.

Sorry I am late to the party, If you never got it to work, this might help some others. The wires apparently are placed in the wrong order from the factor on some occasions. A Google search will quickly lead you to a solution.

This is what I was told and what I did.. I have no issues with mine.

OMG. Return that kit! You should not have to go through that at all. Pretty sad when a manufacturer cannot tell the difference between their hand and aS$. Never mind left from right!

It took me all of 2 minutes to do the above that I quoted.

I like my kit.

Not sure why they would do that... only thing I can think of is to check your grounds.

A 9007 kit is the same kit for a 9004 kit with the exception of the ground in the harness. They both have the same harness connectors

^^ hey Pat - as my friend you should post MY how-to...

Hmmm, maybe really the relais harness. But that would not really explain the foglight problem...
