Mongoose9400 is an unknown quantity at this point
I cut and spliced my wires. Else, buy the needed male/female plugs and make a jumper to plug into the factory fog light harness and the HID ballast.

Example:
Factory fog light plug, purchased fog light plug, spliced wiring, purchased HID ballast plug, Factory HID ballast plug.

Oh ok. Cut and splice is the easiest way seems like. What kind of connection did you use wire nuts?

I solder and heat shrink wrap my electrical connections. After that they are protected in a wire loom.

No problem man. Take your time and do it right the first time and they'll work trouble free for years to come.
