my low beam HID dont work

ifixed the turn signal issue ( lose connection)

Pull the ballast and see if you can see any shorts in the wires, any visibly wrong with it? T

Sizzle of wires then smell is not a good sign check the wiring connections

reverse the spade connectors on the low beam.
it is reversed from the high.

I used the write up here on the board and it was a great step by step, there is even a picture of the plug on the bike that the spades go into. but for some reason it didnt work for me. I reversed the pos/neg plugs on the lowbeam side and problem fixed.
