Default New led install, problems occured

Okay guys , I just bought a set of AuxBeam LED headlights for my car. They were suppose to be just plug n play and it seemed like everything plugged right in and was a quick install. That is until I turned on my headlights and the low beams turn on the high beam. along with when I switch on the high beams, it shines the low beams. So I have been driving around with my high beam setting when I want my low beams to shine, and vise versa. If anybody know where I went wrong or how to fix this that would be great. I drive a 2002 Subaru Impreza

The led harness must have its wire's switched.

Using a test light, figure out which wire on the headlight bulb harness (not the vehicle harness) is which.

Then simply cut both, cross them to correct the issue and solder them back together.

Or, try a different brand LED. They are all made very cheaply overseas. Don't be surprised by quality issues.

The 2002 Impreza uses a switched ground system for the headlamps.

The combined low/high-beam bulb is a 9007.
