You lost the ground connection on the right headlight. Remove the headlight and splice in a new ground wire on the black wire. You can drill a hole and install a screw just inboard of the headlight. That's where I mounted my LED load resister. For more tips, visit GAOwnersClub.com - Alero's and Malibu's welcome - all the same under the skin.

Okay thank you! One more thing. Do you have resistors on all six blinking bulbs? Including the back one?


Also which black wire do I splice?
