Headlight Wireing for Dummies

Does anyone have a diagram that a layman can understand for the wireing to the headlight??

The PO screwed up the wireing and now have no headlight. All the rest of the lights work but no headlight. Yes it's been bypassed due to the relay burning up but can't find whats wrong.

Best I can give you verbally is that the Bk/Y is your ground wire and should connect to the same ground going to your fuel gauge, acessory leads, cooling fan, and a bunch of other things; R/Y I believe is your high beam lead, and R/Bk is your low-beam (and should be the constant power once the engine starts up). The blue wire to your jbox should be bypassing the relay that sends power to the R/Bk once the engine's running.

The best diagram I have is in my Haynes manual, but I'm not sure it's something I can locate on the web for you. Anybody else have a Haynes and know how to capture the image and pdf it?

i find that instead of making it a PDF (which I can do) it is easier to make the image a JPEG by coppying then pasting it into paint....that way you can trace wires easier....but inorder to do this you need to be using Foxit Reader, instead of Adobe
