I installed a hid kit for my car but the lights dont turn on at all or hear a buzzing sound from the ballast. I dont think its my cars wires because the old lights worked fine but I dont know. Im hoping to get an answer soon or just find a place where they can check it out.

    The head light wiring for the stock head lights is straight forward if you need to know the details of the stock wiring for the Mustang headlights I can forward on the colors. Do you have a voltmeter to check wiring?
    Look on the box that the HID Xenon light kit arrived in, they usually have a 1-800 tech hot line.

    Glad you figured out the HID problem. The main light switch sends power to fuse 13 (or 18) its a 10 amp fuse. This fuse carries power to the dash lights illumination on the light blue/red wire. This wire brings power also to the heated rear screen switch illumination and ac heater switch illumination so if those two switches are illuminated the fuse is OK.
