Re: Lime green wire

Is it a twin wire? The back up light switch harness is green.

Re: Lime green wire

the light green wire is the high beam indicator, up there between the instruments.

Re: Lime green wire

It should have a bulb socket on it. See pic in post #6 this thread:

Bulb socket on light (lime) green wire gets inserted into the bracket between the gauges, at the top of JimM's pic.

Re: Lime green wire

It is wrapped into the main underdash harness, and makes it's way to the dimmer switch. It gets energized when the dimmer is clicked to high beam, and it grounds through the metal bracket and instrument cluster ground on the bulb end.
