Default HID Tap to Turn Relay

I have aftermarket HID headlights on my '16 WRX (were installed before I bought it). I am looking for a tap to turn relay but everything I've found are for LED (stock) headlights. I bought one relay but it did not work. Any idea if their are any relays that work on HID headlights or have I bought a faulty or cheap relay?

A tap to turn relay should not be affected by your HID headlights, as it runs the turn signal which is either a tungsten filament or a LED depending on your aftermarket headlight. Check that your relay is compatible with ground side switching [AKA "pull type circuit"].

If you're referring to the TapTurn relay it should be compatible with your '16-
The headlights don't matter for the turn signals as already noted above.
Also the '16 should already have the tap-turn function built into the BIU, so the aftermarket module would not do much for you unless you are changing the turn signals to LED.
