Help with Mach HID's!

So ive wired up my machs using the stock blinkers and running lights in the grill. So i taped up the 3 extra wires on the oem mach pigtails. im pretty sure ive got the remaining high/low/ground wires hooked up correctly and lows come on but all i get is a clicking when i switch to high beams , nothing comes on.

Ive taken a picture of the lights on low setting. Please tell me ive done something wrong and i can get these lights working right tonight. thanks

FWIW, that is the high beams.

The projectors are the low beams and there is a shield inside that opens and the traditional lights come on for high beams.
Low beam - projector
High beam - projector and inner lamp
