I had this same experience a couple of weeks ago when I replaced the stock
7" lamps on my Range Rover. I put the adapters in, as I expected I would
need them, and *that* screwed up the bulbs...

Maybe new H4s are coming shipped configured differently than older
ones...or maybe new vehicles (my Rover's a '95) are being wired differently...

Anyway, this particularly frustrated me, as I waited to install the lamps
for a couple of weeks...got shipped the lamps without the adapters, and
didn't put them in until I got the adapters...

BTW, Imparts was the best place pricewise to get replacement headlamps.
