Which wire inside the canister lid should go to the plus - red (which is going through the switch) or black (directly from the ballast module)? Just disassembled canister lid for sealing gland replacement and now need to assemble it back =)))

normaly red ;-)

point is that with disconnected red , electronics parts could with the time discharge itself ( condensators , HV coil.....) smoothley.

In opposite way with red on and black off , electronics parts might stay on tension longer time and may couse somtimes problems .

LM confirms red wire. So need to check HID bulb...
