TRS HID Relay Harness....?

Well, I feel stupid now..

I've got an 04 325xi. So the car uses an H7 style head light.

I retrofitted to mini H1's.
I bought the relay harness for the H7 because I think that's what I need..?

But, I'm looking at it, and I know how to install it.. some what.

DOes anyone have a good guide to follow?

There are extra coinnections and such that I honestly have no idea what to do with.

Let me guess you got the harness with 5 connections, huh?

I believe you ordered wrong. I made the same mistake when I ordered my setup. All you need are just the headlight error cancellors.

Call them though, they close at 12 EST today for Thanksgiving.

Do the headlight cancellers draw off the battery?
I have capacitors that work the same way pretty much.
I need the harness to draw off the battery, because the LCM can't handle it as it was described to me.

But yes I have the 5 prong one.. would that still work?
Assuming the "extra" cables are just grounds..?

Well, with the harness installed, it works great but I have 1 bulb our warning. The other warning light is off because the "trigger" for hte harness is connected to it.

So, I just need to find a way to get the other light plug to connect to the trigger. Splicing I think. I'll try. worst case, I buy a new harness.
