No, + to + battery and - to - battery. Haha how did you come up with that?

That picture of where the relay housing is mounted is to the right of the passenger side headlight protected by the rubber flap. You'll see once you get you heads pulled off.

so let me clarify for myself then:

1. The HID will run full power when the DRL would normally be on.
2. I still won't have taillights when the DRL are operating.

Did you get your harness parts in today?

The positive on most all vehicles are covered by a red plastic cover of some sort.

Everything else for routing the wires is pretty much self explanitory once you get the harness.
you obviously have something else behind the battery post here.. all i saw was a red wire and a black wire and the positive harness connected to the black! my mistake..
