Halo/projector headlight issues

Okay ive got the halo/projector headlights from ebay, bought them used from a member on the facebook page and im having issues with them. First off I can run HID's in the passenger side and have a low beam, but no high beam. But there also is no connector for the H9 bulb, its been spliced for some odd reason and I cant tell where the wires are going, or what they are plugged into. I just have the bulb in the headlight, with the two male/female connectors going to the ballast. and I have a factory H13 connector going from the ballast directly into the factory plug from the car. The driver side still has the H9 connector and whenever I plug an HID setup in there it fires up then flickers like absolutely crazy, as in turns on and off in a matter of half a second. but when I put a halogen bulb in the driver side I have no issue whatsoever. So any idea whats going on, ill try to get pictures in the morning of the mess of wiring. I would think the driver side would blow a fuse as much as it flickers but It still hasn't. And I was considering just cutting the wires that are spliced on the passenger side and putting in an H9 connector and running a halogen bulb on that side. And one last question, has anyone ran an H11 halogen bulb in these projectors? They have no upgraded halogen bulbs for H9 but they do have Phillips xtremes in H11, which I would like to run in these instead of HIDs. Thanks ahead of time and ill post pics later this morning

Well ended up wiring the passenger side up and it worked good. Took the hids out snd tried a set of h11's and they didn't work, the light output was terrible, then I figured out it was the shield at the end of the bulb that caused it, threw a set of h9 halogens in there and they worked perfect. Now anyone know of a good h9 upgrade bulb besides hid? I have the 'basic' Phillips bulb and can't find any nicer ones
