I'm guessing you got the HIDs from HID Outlet?

Well, clearly if it worked before and now it doesnt, it is a wiring issue with the HID's.

Out of all of them ive seen, its always an issue with the wires swapped.

I cant remember if the Z31 used sealed beams or 9004. But if it used 9004 bulbs, the center pin IIRC is the high beam, the left being low beam and right being ground. 99% of the time, its the high/low mixed up.

Just get a test light, turn your high beams on, touch the terminals with the test light, if it lights up on the middle pin, then that is the high beam, now put on the low beams figure out which is low beam. Now go look at the HID harness, it will only use 2 pins, make sure they are in the right position with regards to your stock harness.

The best way is to first get an electrical diagram for your car, then get a multimeter with continuity mode and draw and trace the module.

It should be too hard, just take a bit of patience.
