Silly question, but the arrows on the caps indicate the direction to install them and the arrows should point to the HID ballast side of the wire, correct?
At this point I am so close to SEMA that the stock stuff may end up going back in.
Caps need to be before the relay off the stock wiring and the 12V for the relay (30 IIRC) should be direct from the battery.
I'll try to use this as the arrowing on the caps - >>>>>>
Just assume you don't have anything wired up.
On the stock wiring to the headlamp is where you place the caps. There are 3 wires, LO HI and GROUND. One cap should be installed so that it goes from LO >>>>>> GROUND. The other cap should be installed so that it goes from HI >>>>> Ground.
If you plugged up the stock headlamp, it would still work and wouldn't have a faint buzz. But you need to take the trigger wire (IIRC is 86 on a relay) from the relay for the LO HID and splice to the LO of the stock harness just past the cap.
Secondly, the trigger wire from the relay for the HI HID splices to the HI of the stock harness just past the cap. All grounds splice together.
Then your wiring for the HID or any other lamp would still work behind both relays for HI or LO.
edit - I did a search and found this pic on a Chrysler forum. See how the cap is wired up.... just wire it up the same but do it to the stock wiring. The modulation needs to be stopped before the relay. The 12V for powering the lights will come directly from the Batt and won't be modulated. Don't worry, continue to ask if you don't understand. I know I suck at explanation... but it works once you get it right.
