where did you install your grounds on the relays? you should only use the factory ground locations.

Didn't have the relays the first time I hooked them up but I remember reading somewhere I didn't need relays for the fogs?

When the relays come in (have sets for lows and fogs) I'll use factory power pedestal in the fuse box and the driver side ground location on that fender.

when you get the relays, connect them to the battery positive terminal and the factory grounds on the fenders

for the power I dont like to go to the battery.......open the front most fuse box and use the big stud to add you power wire connection.
its like a 13mm deep socket; i haave like 4 wires up there.
we all use one relay PER side per HID. that is safest and if you ever lose one, say a fuse goes, you have one headlight to get you home.

MOST HERE buy our kits from xenondepot as they know to provide high quality relay harnesses.
What about this?
