Just return the bad kit and buy a ddm 35 watt slim ballast kit with error eliminators bro. Save yourself head aches, they also provide a lifetime warranty

sometimes the ddm kits one of my fogs doesnt turn on, if I turn them on and off 1-2x it does come right on. I thought it was a fluke but i also installed a set on my corvette fogs and they do the same thing.

How are you installing them? Can you take a few pictures of the connections especially on the plastic cover? I think I asked this before on the previous set.

Bypass the cap cover and hook up the bulb directly to the ballast and eliminators as a test
you reversed the polarity I'm betting that's why it fried.

I did that bro and it didn't do anything and I connected it as on the website it was on DDM but it doesn't turn on because the metal pieces inside aren't around I'm looking at there flat if you know what I mean look inside the connector

Should have two metal blades in there, is it just bent to the side or totally missing?

Wait a minute... are you trying to plug that into the plastic covering cap? the plug you post a pic of where is that coming from?

I don't think I understand what you're saying. Is there any way you can take pics of it connected together?
