halo lights

ok not really sure if anyone on here will know, or even if this is the right place to ask. i normally dont touch imports but my buddy bought new halo headlights for his 99 honda civic, everything hooked up to the stock wiring harness but on the new lights there are 2 red wires that come out of the bottom and i have no idea were they would hook up to. i am thinking they are for the blue halos and the lights didnt come with any instructions.

well that was my first guess...but they are both red, so i basically just have a 50/50 chance of getting it right? so will both his halos be on even if he is in high or low beam? those lights are set up were it has one bulb for the high and one for the low and each have there own halo.

these are leds ? think about it this way make a jumper, attach one end to the battery and just probe the wires one at a time, it is all 12v, so you will not hurt or blow it up. , maybe one red is for 1/2 and the other is for the other 1/2 of the halos around the bulb. I have never worked with the product but is can not be that difficult to figure out. How is it grounded?

The halos are leds so hook one wire to 12vdc and the other to ground if they do not light just reverse the wires. Leds a polarity defined or sensitive.
