Not sure I understand your question.

Power feeds into the headlight switch and then gets distributed out to all the bulbs.

I guess according to the mod I want to do, it asks if the headlight system is Positive Standard Switched, or Negative standard Swichted. I dont know what it means or how to find out.

Bill PM sent hope that clears it up a lil
