On a '56 Bel Air, what is the wire that goes to the headlights? I can see a light brown or beige wire that goes to the headlights but I don't know what it's for. Thanks in advance.

Just because your car/truck was "Made In America" doesn't mean it's American made... think about it. Buy American First.

There is a light green wire that goes from the dimmer switch to the high beam and a tan wire from the dimmer to the low beam. The green and yellow wires split at the drivers side connector on filler panel. A single yellow wire goes from the headlight switch to the dimmer switch.
