2013 RT. Anyone know the color code of the high beam wire?
The instructions don't say what color.
I am installing Clearwater lights and all I have left is to hook
the white wire to the high beam. Sure is a tight fit with those
radio speaker boxes in the way. I can almost see the wire loom.
My hands are still recovering from the HID install. cry
Posi tap should work for this.
Thanks in advance.

WHITE. I have a 2012 and installed the Clearwater lights. The trigger wire you need to tap into is the White one.

White is the color of the high beam wire on every German vehicle since ... well at least the 1960s. Bosch standard.

Low beam wire is yellow

White light is brighter than yellow light, right?

And grounds are brown. Ground sometimes called earth. Brown is the color of dirt. (except for Oklahoma)
