I have no idea offhand but the way i would find out is to remove the cover off the back of the headlight and on the bulb is a connector ,the top horizontal connection is the earth and then the vertical connections either side are the dip and the beam ,most vehicles have the right one as the beam so look at the color ,if you have a twin bulb type then the inner one which is most often the beam so look for the colour on this one ,now be carefull as some vehicles have a multi plug going into the headlight then the wires run from the back of the multiplug socket and could be different colours ,and as iam colour blind red/green i always use a multimeter or a screwdriver probe that lights up when power is present .This may not be the answer you need but it will enable you to have some idea what to look for as some vehicles have a big connection block where the engine loom connects to the firewall so again the wire colours can change their as well.

I have a 2005 pathfinder and want to piggy back the main/full beam to power a light bar. I do not want a dash switch What colour is the full/main beam wire that comes from the lights Jon

Depends on the option package as well as what it was country it was built for. Your best bet is to use a voltmeter to determine which wire is it. You will need to drive a relay with it. Adding the light bar directly to it may cause issues.

Left headlight low beam went ouy, replaced it and still did not work. I figure it's the wiring But my shop manual headlight cicuit isn't shown.

Your problem sounds like either the globe (did you touch the glass on the globe if so that could be your problem as you musent touch the top part or glass with your hand (use a clean piece of cloth) and also change it with the other side light and if it works then its the head light plug or the wiring .
If you carnt find the problem with the wiring then take the colour from the light on the wire (main beam should be BLUE with White trace) so find the wire and run a new wire from the other side head light and it should work ..But make sure its not the globe first.
If the main beam light works on the left hand side then it carnt be the earth wire on the back of the light plug

If you cannot find a problem then run a wire from the other side light main beam (go by colour on wire)

I need to know what the box is attached to the back of the bulb on the exeon lights on the mini cooper s 56 plate and can this box be replaced as the main beam isn't working.there is some wires that plug...

This is the control unit for the xeon headlamp. If the wiring is broken then you need another control unit. Do not attempt to repair these as they store very high voltages .

05 Jeep Wrangler High Beams Work, Low Beams dont

There are no relays for the headlights. Your problem could be from the headlight switch. You would have to check and see if you have power coming out of the switch on the low beam side. Check with a test light.
