Default HID's stuck on high beams

My 6k HID lo/hi (all in one bulb) are stuck in high beams. The dash icon has a dimmed high beam, and when I flip high beams on they brighten up some. My lights are always stuck on high.

I just bought the 6k HID lo/hi, before I had 6k lo beams. One of the new ballast's do not work. So I'm using a ballast from my 6k lo beam.

The only difference of the two are the new ballast have 10a lin max. My 6k lo have a 5.5a lin max. Is this why my lights are stuck on high?

I have made sure I have good ground, and good connections. I also have after market headlight houseing's.

Couple of things, check you grounds!

Are you using a proper relay harness?

Check the pin out of your headlights you may have to switch some of the pins depending on how your HIDs interface with the factory wiring.

my grounds are good checked those. The relay came with the hids so that should be good and I have already changed the pins around and that didn't help.

When I switched the pins around that didn't fix the problem. It was still stuck on high beams.
