Does anyone know how to put a hid kit in and where all the wire connections go when there's only one that goes to the old light?

Ok. The wire that goes to the pin on the globe is constant 12 volts positive.
The high/low beam head lights are negatively switched. All the other lights, tail, reverse,stop and parkers are positively switched.

This will show you.
(If you don't have fog lights, just ignore that circuit).

Sorry mate. Don't take this the wrong way, but if you have no clue as to what you are doing with the lights,
you are better taking it to an auto electrician.
You have to be exact when it comes to electrical wiring, especially hid's as they produce a very high voltage.
Things can go from very good, to very bad, very quickly :)

My thoughts exactly.
