I am sorry I tried to look but found nothing but I bought a cheap Xentec HID Kit and went to try an hook it up on my 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 but could not get them to work I had a Red Wire and I Black Wire ( Hot and Ground ) but when I try to hook them up to the stock harness and turn the switch it doesnt turn on but the 3 wires are Red/White-Purple?/Purple?. So is any of those the ground? but if I take the ground wire and ground it to the truck and plug the red wire to the purple it will turn the light on but if I switch the switch it doesnt turn it off it just stay on constant but now if I take these headlights to my 1995 Dodge Ram 1500 its headlight harness has 3 wires Red/Something?/Black if I plug black into the black the the red into whatever the middle color is ( I forget it was dark and late ) They work when I pull the ****.. so my question is how the heck to I get these suckers to work on my 2001 without plugging the red wire into the purple then running the ground wire up to my gab to a toggle switch to ground it to turn it on lol... Please Help

yeah the hid kit just has two wires hanging there with a plastic adapter I plug them into to then plug into the harness so I was messing with it by just putting the prongs into the harness to try an figure out the setup and thought I tried every possible connection lol I will try here in a while after I get off work
Are these bulbs polarity specific? For a 'normal' circuit, yeah, I don't see any problems, but, on the dodge, where things are a tad backward, power (violet, or violet/red) would go to the ground terminals, Red/Orange would go to high beam terminal, and Violet/White to low beam...... and things should work as advertised.
