Default 06 sti HL leveling switch wiring help

Hey guys hope you guys can help me out as i am almost 100% with my 06 sti front end conversion on my 02 WRX

So i need a little help and just double check to make sure i have this all figured out

so here is the deal, i have yet to find any threads to help me figure this out, I am just piecing some info together and hoping i get it right with some of you guys help

so this is what i gather thanks (xrdriver) for posting this info

The gray plug at the switch has the following 5 wires:

red/green (output to levelers), red/yellow (ignition), 3 empty slots, black (ground), violet (goes to FB9, F/B Fuse #12), orange/white (illumination).

The 2 plugs at the headlights have the following 3 wires:

red/yellow (ignition), LH headlight has red/light blue (from red/green output from switch), RH headlight has red/green, black (ground).

my question is the red/yellow wire, do i run the red/yellow wire from the headlights to the red/yellow wire in the switch? or does (ignition) mean 12v source?

The red wire on the leveling motor is needed to power the motor itself.
The yellow wire is used as a signal wire. It sends a positive volt at different voltage to move it up or down. So,dont connect that to an ignition wire. I found out the hard way and burnt out the level motor.

Instead of running many wires from headlights to switch, you can
splice the red wire from the level motor directly onto a +12 volt wire on the headlight and ground itself. It doesnt take alot of power.

Next, connect together the 2 yellow wires from the driver and passenger side level motor,hook that to your switch, and you're done.


Headlight level pin
-------------------
1= Signal wire(yellow wire from the leveling motor)
2= +12 volt Power wire(Accessory wire in igition)
3= not used
4= not used
5= not used
6= Chassis ground
7= Violet (Any dimmer wires)positive
8= Orange with white line(positive)
