    I have a pin broken on my snopro 3000 harness connection and the curtis website shows the schematic for the angled plug only.The wiring color seems to have changed by just the description,too i just want to by pass that pin but don't know which color wire it is. My setup is separate connection for main power and ground with a total of 12 pins /now 11/ on the large non angled connector. thanks for any info!!!!
    if it helps the other lights work, running, turn but the headlights do not come on when switching toggle and the hibeam indicator comes on when switching to plow lights but with no headlights at all.

    The pin you are refering to is the white/red wire that runs to the headlamp connectors.
    It is the ground wire.
    Be careful opening the harness, there is also just a white wire, so be careful which one you cut.

    That would be a good assumption, but let me double check.

    Your assumption is correct.
    Good luck
