(umnitza) Wrong lights?

Got my lights in.. I ordered the 55w version. Key on engine not running they work fine. Engine on the flickered at first and now they wont even come on. These have the modules built in so I investigated further.


On my orginal head lights (halogen) there is a plug on the top that is blank. No prongs, no harness.. On the new p46s this same spot has 4 pins and above it is stamped 12v 55w. Soooo I went to look at my receipt and it shows a factory xenon selected. (which I obviously don't have) in ordered these over the phone so it wasn't a typo on my behalf.


Anyway. They want come on at all now. How can I rectify this? I don't mind doing some quick wiring if it means I don't have to wait another 3 weeks for lights. Love the angel eyes on them though. Very bright. High beams work fine. Both bulb indicators show bulb out on dash.

This plug is the one I'm talking about.

This is the factory headlights.... Ie.. Blank plug.

The new ones have 4 pins here that I assume were for the bixenon setup, but do they also feed power to the hid? Either way. They ain't working at all. Need fixed asap
