Default GC8 Morettes HID install problem! Need Help

Ok here's the list of questions!

1, For you all that have GC8 morettes with HID, how do you wire your system? Now, i only have the low(HID) and when i hit high or fog there is nothing.

Eventually, i want to do the wiring mod that my low(HID) will stay on when i hit the high. Perhaps, my fog will be on with the high too!

2, when I turn on the engine, and start to drive the HID came on itself. I can't turn it off, but if i stop my car (engine's running) i can turn it off.
So, what's the problem? Why can't i turn off the HID when i am driving?
Is it anything about the DRL?

3, How do you adjust your system? Is you bulbs come with a steel plate for better focus? I got flashed and some 18 wheelers tailgate me on the hwy last nite, scary:monkey:

4, I notice that my highbeam light on the dash was on even it wasn't.
The light on the fog button is gone, and the green light on the A/C is gone too, why?

Any suggestions or ideas will be greatly appreciated

Attn: TaiChic - if you are reading this, help me pls
I know you know this kind of stuff pretty well! BTW, have you figure out the HIGH stay on mod on the morettes yet?

THANKS ALL FOR READING THIS LONG POST AND SORRY FOR THE CAP

i installed/wired mine up according to North Ursalia's directions... then i put in the HIDs and everything is fine...

i adjusted mine by spinning the white notch behind the headlight...

i can keep the lows and highs on at the same time with the fog lights by positioning the lever halfway between highs and lows... [i did it on accident at first ] really bright btw! especially with the HIDs!

I have everything in my head, but won't be able to put it into practical application till I get my car back. Sanders, I'm trying to bypass that whole relay thing for the highs/lows, so you don't have to try to keep the stalk halfway.

But, how do you wire the high's? and do you have problem with your fog?

I don't have highs and fogs for now! my wiring must be wrong.

Lightbulb FYI

DRL acts on the e-brake, so with e-brake down, your HID will come up. I would love to hack the DRL wiring so that it will drive the inner pair, but apparently it's complex enough that no one has messed with it.
