The last mod you need to do is getting the ballast grounded. So it looks like your pin 2 and 4 are used. This means that pin 2 is most likely the ground for your ballast and pin 4 is the ground for some other lights in the headlight. your cars harness does not use pin 2 so you will need to tap the wires from pin 2 to pin 4. If it is tight, you can do it externally on the car wiring harness by making a pin and connecting it to the empty pin 2 slot and then tapping it to pin 4 wire externally.

I don't think swapping pin 2 and 4 is going to work as it may be providing the ground (most likely) for your angel eyes.

Another thing you may want to do is providing power to those 3 led lights on the side of the headlight near the top. Those probably go to a pin that isn't set up. You may want to the positive to the positive wire for your angel eyes.

send me a whats app msg if you need and any help.

shoot. It would have been the ultimate oem move if I could have switched 2 and 4. I guess I will just tap them. I think there should be a lot of slack on the ballast wire from looking at it.

I don't like those three leds in the corner and would rather leave them off so I probably won't tap them to activate. I hope that covers everything. I will get to the coding as soon as I piece together my one more ballast and led blinker.
