Need help with my Halo wiring - Pics inside

see attached files for the type of lights i have.. I think i did something wrong, I just couldnt find a decent how to on this and im a newbie with wiring.. so a little help is appreciated

the highs and lows are okay cause they're plug and play.. unfortunately it looks like they came mixed up from the factory because when i put the full lighting system on it turns to high beams only... whatever Ive seen some how tos on that and im sure ill fix it...

my main issue is the turn signals cause i want to get rid of the grill lights.. check the pic for how i wired them.. i must've did something wrong.. is there something im supposed to do with the green and red wire? I get the fast blinking light when i signal.. I cut off the harness but now im thinking i wasnt supposed to do that.. can someone tell me what i need to do?

ive searched the boards but couldnt quite find my answer

yes you will get a fast signal like that

you need to go into the side repeater light on the bumper (what people call "clear corners") the reason for this is that the lights in the grill are dual-filament, and the fast blinker is because there is only one filament on the circuit you have now.

and btw, the lows are supposed to turn off when the highs are on. if they dont you will get light waves cancelling each other out due to the projector lens on the lows and they will not be as bright

oh and i didnt mean i wanted both the highs and lows on at the same time... although i know its a popular way to go.. what I meant was when I turn the light switch to full i get high beams only... no low beams.. the lows are on with the full lighting off (i guess this would be call day time running lights)

ill deal with that issue though.. lets get me blinking right!!!

im not sure which is which but one is + and one is ground... it doesnt really matter though since the turn signal lights are just resistors, they dont care about polarity. if you want to be sure just try it out before you finalize the connection.

ya that daytime running lamp issue has been mentioned before, not sure whats going on there

so to fix the hi lo issue Ive read to just switch the two wires coming from the car... but wont that just make my issue reverse?

i.e. right now I get lo lights without full lighting system on but his when the full lighting system is on... once I swap the two wires I would probably get Hi lights for daytime... and los once I turn on the full lighting system...

which still wouldnt be right...

I'm gonna try it out, if someone has these let me know if this worked for you...
