    Turn the key and lights on, hold the frame and then lick one wire at a time. You will have your answer. As a bonus, you will never forget.

    Better. The grounding-and-licking method is cheaper though. :D

    I haven't licked the end of the signal light, but I did use that method for testing the wires when wiring up my trailer plug.

    I didn't figure it was one of those things that needed pics. I thought everyone did it that way. I guess I will have to do an instructional thres of "How to Lick It to see if she is Hot". :D yeah, I said she because as far as I am concerned my truck is a chick.
