Default HELP!!! Headlights...

<Back ground>
I have the cheapO Ebay JDM head light jobbers. I got them used from Tad(maybe u can help me if you see this), they were all wired up with the "Blue Plug" and worked great. From washin the car in the cold so much some of the wires may have froze and cracked. The headlights are all messed up. Low beams are hay wire, hi beams done work, yadda yadda.

<Problem>
Can someone hook me up with a wire diagram of the way they should be wired and connected to the blue harness. I don't care if you draw it in paintshop. I need to re-wire these before i make my 5 hour drive home for the holidays, HELP!

Why, the wiring on those lights is ridiculously simple. They have no relays or anything, just bulbs and wires. As long as you can identify the commons and low/high beam wires you can put it all back together.

right, thats the problem. A, the existing wires are all the same color. B, they are all messed up/braded together. C, i don't have the OEM lights out here at school w/ me to follow the way they go.

So your sayin both hi and low share a common power, but have their own grounds for switchin on and off?

Yes, the Subaru headlight system is common power, switched ground. As I said in the other thread the center pin on the blue connector is the common positive, the two bulb commons should be tied to that. The other wires are the switched grounds.
