Headlight wiring harness to return 2001 Silverado to stock

Headlight wiring harness to return 2001 Silverado to stock

Postby windytrip [OP] » Oct 24 2019, 8:33pm

Hello, I bought a 2001 Silverado (2500HD if it matters) that has a HID kit in it. They aren't very bright and the two sides don't match. I want to buy new headlight housings and return to stock, but I think the wiring harness has been hacked up pretty bad. (See below).

I was hoping there were OEM headlight wiring harness kits I could get that would just plug into the main harness and I could pop it all back together, but that doesn't seem to exist for the GMT800 trucks. Other than getting a wiring diagram and splicing stuff by hand, are there any other options? I don't even have the bulb sockets, so I'd need to cut the harness from a junk truck or something.

I'm open to other ideas, as is the lights are too dim at night.

I just failed inspection because of the headlights, so I'm going to have to figure something out soon. Any suggestions or links to the OEM wiring diagram would be appreciated.

Try a junkyard for the harnesses you need. Then maybe have a look at some Diode Dynamics LED Headlight Bulbs.
Other than that, I guess you could move to a more inspection friendly State. LOL!!!
