No. The two cut wires on the JB plug don't get spliced together. Just insulate the ends. You are splicing the two wires in the harness together.

4) Splice the two wires together securely and insulate properly.........That's it!! OK that's not confusing,remove these two wires from 10 plug JB (Took me a few minutes...Junction Box!!) Splice these two "loose" wires TOGETHER...DONE!!So you do NOT cut wires then splice the two cut wires on the "plug" side together,coming out of the JB(??)....or do you splice the "longer" loose cut wires heading "out back" together??I know these questions are Moronic,guess it would make sense to splice the two coming out the JB.BUT...LOL if you remove the wires from the JB,then splice...its like connecting two "loose" wires,same as cutting them and NOT going through the JB.

Be sure you're working on the 10-pin connector.

Thorn suggested the Blue Wire Mod in the other thread... Did that work for you?

Done correctly, it should not affect the headlight operation.

Edit: Maybe it does affect the headlight relay, see the next few posts. If it needs the Blue Wire mod, that's what I would do. It's just trouble lurking if you leave the three JB relays in operation.

Change "done correctly" to "splicing the black into the yellow/red, but leave the yellow/red connected to the JB" and I'll agree. Every schematic I've seen indicates that the removal of the yellow/red wire from the JB removes the ground path for the primary coil of the headlight relay, requiring the blue-wire mod to be done to get your headlight back.
