    I have a 01 chevy 1500 with the 4 port 3 plug fisher harness. I wired everything the other day and it all worked fine and now my passenger side headlight won't go on with it hooked up to the truck side wiring. If I plug it back in to the truck plug it works. Any suggestions?

    Try changing the plug from A to B. That would be my fist starting place.

    Do you mean switch port 3 to port 4 and 4 to 3?

    I just looked at it. And no configuration of switching plugs around makes it work

    Yeah. Doesn't do anything. If I plug the passenger side into the drivers side light then the passenger side works and the drivers doesnt
