can you tell me the wire colors and the drivers side has one bulb with 2 filaments in it correct ?

im just being sure as they had alot of different wiring set ups and bulb set ups for this year

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The wire is blue and black. One bulb in each light with one filament. These were replaced
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
One wire is green and one blue.
Chevy Mechanic: Gary, Chevy Technician replied 2 years ago

does the black show a good ground ?

and with the low beams on does the low beam other wire show 12 volts ?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I have to get a tester tomorrow. I don't know how to do it.
Chevy Mechanic: Gary, Chevy Technician replied 2 years ago

if just the drivers side bulbs will not work then those drivers side bulbs are missing power or grounds

two wires on each bulb and to turn the bulb on one wire needs to be 12 volts and the other a good ground
