On '02's:

Orange = +12v to headlights
Yellow = ground w/ low beams
Purple = ground w/ high beams

Headlamps are postive switched (powered applied when the switched is turned on).
Low and high beams are negative switched with the dimmer switch.

thanks--will try again.

If it'll help, I'll dig up the instructions that I had printed out years ago, and post it for the '00s -'02s.

Connections from the Painless Wiring kit 30821 installed in my '01 YXL:

Relay terminal 86 connects to the orange (+12V) wire, with a 5A inline fuse.
Relay terminal 85 connects to the purple (ground) high beam wire.
Relay terminal 30 connects to the yellow (ground) low beam wire.
Relay terminal 87 connects to chassis ground.

Hope this helps.

Success. I assume that the Relay terminal 86 connects to the orange (+12V) wire, with a 5A inline fuse is on the High Beam because it works.

Next mod is the DRLs with both Hi and Low beams.

Thanks Chuckee - The circuit is switched through the ground for future reference. Just use the same logic when doing the DRL add-on. Do check it first.

Anyone have a link to the aftermarket kit? No time to DIY (wish I did have the time).

Thanks:)

I think GMDIY.com use to sell them for about $50. Still will require you to DIY to connect the various wires. I'll install it for you for $100 if you drive over.

Hmmm - that looks tempting. Maybe I will have to look into that while working on the Magnaflows!

If I still lived in Norwalk I'd take you up on it, but payment would be in beers:)

I tried the 4 way headlight mod and fog lights on with high beams, but I would really rather the foglights come on with the low beams. What can I change to make this happen. I currently have the both 85s from the relays going to ground, both 86s from the relays going to the green hi beam, one 30 from a relay going to the foglight purple and one 40 from a relay going to low beam yellow, and both 87s running to a 30 amp fuse link and then to the battery block.

Hi Dan,

With the 4 way mod, this is pretty easy, because if you think about it, the low beams are always on, after the autolamp kicks in.

Simply leave the 4 way mod alone. However, switch the lead to the fog relay coil + from the green HB lead, to the yellow LB lead.

Make sense?

Ok so I should modify my wiring to look like this:
both 85s going to ground
both 87s running to a 30 amp fuse link and then to the battery block.
one 86 going to the green hi beam with that relay's 30 going to low beam yellow
one 86 going to the yellow low beam with that relay's 30 going to the foglight purple
