Default OEM HID ballasts? orange label vs green label

Anyone know the difference between the orange label ballasts and the green label ballasts? I have a pair of each and cant get my orange label ballasts powered up with the morimoto harness. Based on the instructions the orange label ballasts needs to be rewired to work. Does anyone know what the wiring difference is or which pins need to be powered for them to work?

Just thought I'd update this for anyone having the same issue.

I purchased these lights from white_dc and could not get them to work. A quick call to retrofit source answered our question, the green wire going to the ballasts needs to be cut and taped off. That simple, works like a charm!
