OEM hid lights installation problem

I have the ford mustang oem HID lights, part number ar33-13005-ce

I am also installing them in a 2011 ford mustang which only has a 3 cavity connector for the headlight. This one requires a 4 cavity connector that had preassigned pin assignments.

Can anyone tell me the pin assignment of the socket where the HID headlight connects? In other words, there are 4 pins, can you tell me which one is for the positive for the halo light, the main headlight high beam and low beam, and which one is for the negative?

Please help me.

There is more to that. First of all, HIDs require a 12V+ source always on (1 cable)...
Then you have ground, low beam and high beam (the other 3 cables).

However, you need to create a circuit for the high beam. In halogen headlights, high beams are a separate bulb in the bulb.
In HIDs, the low beam has to be powered (for light) and a little actuator opens the lens for the high beam.

So you need 2 relays for high beam. See attached picture.

You can also just buy a Plug and Play harness here: Web Store - ProjectoRetrofits

Might be the easiest thing. It will also help if you experience HID flickering, as the module takes care of that.

I am still using my self made wire harness, but have this one for the 2013 HIDs in my cabinet. As you have to remove the headlight to work on those, I will do this once I swap my bumper.

That's good to know. I've never been totally satisfied with the original haolgens that came with the car.
