Not sure exactly what you mean by 'cut and slice', (perhaps you meant 'cut and splice') but double-check to make sure your connections are perfect.

Aftermarket HID systems are usually all the same:
Original headlight harness/plug--->aftermarket ballast-->aftermarket igniter-->aftermarket HID bulb

If you're still having problems, narrow it down to find which component in the system is faulty. Since you said that your driver side still works fine, swap each component to the passenger side, one-by-one starting with the ballast.
That should allow you to see which component of the passenger side system is bad.
