    OK so I'm replacing my Boss headlight/parking lights with some used Grote 9 pin headlight/parking lights. Iv'e isolated the boss side wires as these if I'm correct.

    BY/WY = High beam

    RY/WY = Low beam

    BR Park
    PK Right turn
    Y Park
    Violet left turn

    Y = grd.?

    These are the wires coming out of the Grote lights

    RT side
    W = High beam
    Purple = Rt. turn?
    BK/O = low beam?
    BR = park?
    BK = Grd?

    Left Side
    W=High beam
    Grey = lt turn?
    BK/O = low beam?
    BR = park?
    BK = Grd?



    Now I need to connect these to the Grote 9 pin wire harness. Iv'e already cut the 9 pin connector off as I'm going to solder the connections. Could someone please help me out in figuring out which wires go where (color wise)

    I edited the post and included the wire colors coming out of the Grote lights.

    Update

    Ok this is what I have so far. I have parking lights both turn signals.
    However no headlights(actually the headlights keeps blowing my fuse)
    I have the the W/Y wires tied into both the R/Y and B/Y wires as the Grote headlights only have one feed wire to each high and low beam BK/O low beam BK high beam. The white wire in my previous post (I had this and the BK wire wrong in the first post) I was unsure of until I took the Grote assemblies apart to follow wire colors.

    So nobody wants to give it a shot here, I'm disappointed. It seems in the past when someone needed help there were plenty of people willing to help out. What happened?

    Thanks I've been to the site however I've come to the conclusion that these grote style lights are not compatible with the boss system. I ended up welding the rusted headlight bracket back on and rewired the light back.
