    I'm having a hard time finding a 3 wire one? Auto zone, napa, no one has it or has ever heard of or seen a 3 wire connector and I don't want to mess with connecting the 2 black's together, that can't be right.

    Any help is appreciated! Thank you!

    The wiring diagram shows 2 grounds and it seems people normally connect the two grounds to the one ground on the replacement two-wire connector without issues. The green wire is hot.

    The headlight uses a shutter to shift the beam pattern for high/low.

    Is there any site or video with info on how that 2 grounds one hot wire system works? I'd be very curious to know how that system with a "shutter" (what's that?) works. Also any documents out there that clearly show the wiring and where both grounds go through (at the other end of the harness)?

    Thank you in advance for the much appreciated info!
