Maybe post a picture so people can see the harness. I re-wired mine but it was a different ballast.

sounds like you have the wrong harness for a 660. the colors are in pairs for sure:
2 red
2 yellow
2 blue
2 brown
and black, white and green for power

checking on the 440 for you now

let me know if you want to try and match the wires (colors) at the pins, I can let you know which bulbs they go to on mine if it will help....

Default wiring

the diagram on the balast is the same as the one online and the harness has all the colors in singular with extra wires
