Brown/blue is ground

Yellow/black L/H. Yellow R/H = 12 volt supply

Red/blue = variable supply from levelling switch

Seems the colours change from the ten pin connector to the internal wiring of the headlamp unit which converts to;

Brown = Ground

Blue =12 volt supply

Black = Variable supply

You sure its a 12v supply Chris?

Dunno why but 9v sticks in my mind for some reason...

The supply is from the dipped beam fuse, the supply from the leveller could well be around nine volts depending on the position of the switch
