    The +12V connection to the passenger high beam is Orange/black. Note that this is hot all the time, not just when the light is on. The switched ground connection to the passenger high beam is Black/green. This connection is switched on and off to turn the light on or off. It is also PWM'd for day time running lights, if you have that feature enabled. Note that these colors are at the light itself. They change to Orange/brown and Black/red respectively. Note that there are also wires with the same colors in the same locations that are different connections (like the low beam light). You will have to trace or otherwise verify that you have the correct wires.

      Thank you very much!. I put lights on a cavalier I had and it took me forever to figure out it had switched ground. Once I figured it out I just ran a hot wire to the relay then used the high beam ground signal to switch the relay.
