For our HID Install, RayGS3 and I both used the female connectors below (bought from Radio Shack) and attached them to the OEM HID connector also pictured below. I cut off the stock 9006 connector and attached the female connector. There is a little piece of plastic inbetween the positive and negative prongs on the OEM HID connector to keep them from touching. Then we wrapped the connection up with electrical tape. I am still using the 15 amp fuse that was used for my halogens and have not had any problems.

hmm why do you have to run another whole harness from xenondepot? can't you just get a jumper harness from a halogen 9006 plug to a hid d2r plug? i just bought some oem hid headlights and its on its way and that is what i was planning on doing?

no because the stock wiring is not capable to handle that much power it will melt the stock wiring ..the hid's need constant power also the ZD harness comes with relays and fuses and such for safety

i was wondering if someone can help me find a part number. i need the plug that plugs into this HID ballast plug. it is the female plug that i need. with a couple inches of wire on the end. reason is because i am trying to make a jumper or conversion harness from a 9006 plug to a oem hid ballast plug.

You're better off converting the plug on the ballast to 9006.
Lexus does not sell the plugs itself, you would need to special order the whole oem Headlight harness from them if you want to have a direct plug in. Which would probabaly cost $800+
(i tired to buy an hid plug for a 350z, they can only sell me the whole harness)
