There is a factory plastic plug that all those wires plug into.
It’s part of every factory wiring harness and it plugs into the headlite switch with all the wires plugged into the correct slots in the plastic plug.

I might have a used one on a used good condition wiring harness.
American Autowire makes and sells the factory wiring harnesses and might sell you a plastic connector

here is a picture showing the connector on a new underdash wiring harness (gray connector in middle of picture)

This switch fits many years, pretty sure it’s the same in C2 vettes as well if that helps in looking for a used or new one.

Check the Classic listing.

I have 2 headlight switches and the cables are there. I don't need to buy them . I just need to connect the cables to the switch I just don't know which cables go on the switch. I'm looking to have someone post a picture of the installed cables to match up were they go. Sorry for the confusion.

What you need is the plastic connector that your wires plug into, then that connector plugs onto your switch. I was suggesting where you could find the plastic connector. If you have a plastic connector, the shop manual/shop manual/:supplement/assemb ly manual likely has the wiring schematic that will show you which wire plugs in which space on the plastic connector.

I got the plastic connector I got everything ready. I don't have a shop Manuel I was hoping someone could just connect the color wires to the right prongs on the headlight switch .

Make sure to pull out the locking tabs on the wire connectors. They hold the connectors into the plastic housing. They had to be released to remove the plastic housing, and if the wires don't stay in when you push them into place, use your fingernail to pull the tabs out some more. You release them by putting a tiny flat-blade screwdriver in from the opposite side of the wire clip.

Never argue with an idiot. He'll drag you down to his level, then beat you with experience.
