OMG lampoon you are my savior thanks alot bro i really owe you alot as well as the rest of the g6 club members. now me and my dad are happy :P i was going to do that btw but just wasnt sure if it would screw up the batterie in case it wasent this the problem. but once i received your comment and i read it, i emidiatly realized that it wouldnt do anything. so i did what you said and it works. i guess ddm just failed placing the polarity. ill put some tape around the plug to make sure it doesnt come off because now it doesnt have that little lock anymore. thanks alot again

Hey, just so you know, that's not Lampoon...

Suggestion though..
Put a zip tie between the two wires on the connector and then loop it around the entire ballast. Oh and do this before you stick it down or else you won't be able to get the sip tie around it haha.
