    Default 2 high beam style connectors?

    So for some reason on my new set of headlights the HID bulb has the same style connector as the high beam and honestly i have no idea what to do about this.

    I dont know how this happens...

    Looking more at it it looks like there was a halogen conversion put on. Can i use the stock ballast?

    No, you cannot use the ballast with halogen lamps.

    You would need harness connectors for the halogen bulbs spliced into the power feed wires that currently feed into the ballast.

    Thats not too bad then. I dont know too much about these conversion kits but it looks like i should be able to put any bulb in here really, getting the power source and the check headlamps message to go away would be the only issue but in the long term this could be beneficial.
