Wiring aftermarket lights

Postby Cjs2009 » Sun Mar 23, 2014 12:11 am



We just received aftermarket lights with two wires for our 1978...which only has one. Is there a way to connect these to work?
Thank you!

The lights, with only one wire, are using the light housing as a ground. Depending on the colors of the two wire lights. ??? One goes to power (from switch) and the other goes to a ground point.
