need help with ceiling fan light kit

We decided to add a light kit to our ceiling fan, and the fan works but the lights will not work. I need help to figure out what we may have missed.

This is the bottom of the ceiling fan.



We took the light kit which had 2 wires a black and a white. and connected them to the two wires labeled light, we put the white wire with the white, and the blue wire with the black. plugged the quick connect back together, and the fan works but the lights will not turn on.


Can you help me?

At the top of the fan in the canopy where it connects to power.... there should be three wires.
Blue for lights, black for fan and common white for neutral.
You'll need to connect the black and blue together.
