    No clue what you're showing us there.
    I've never seen anything that looks like that on the DDM harnesses I installed.

    Connector doesn't look right, and there should be an identical black wire next to it.
    DDM uses the same connectors for + and -, but they reverse the gender of the connector so they can't be plugged in improperly.

    So more update....

    The wire that I was trying to show was a wire that was coming from the harness on the driver side to the passenger side.

    I took out the wiring and flip it, and it work. Now i just put it back in the original position and clean where the ground plug is. Both lights work now. I will try it again later and see if any problem pop up

    I found my issue was the grounding, found better spots and they are working perfectly

    Me too

    I think it was because of the cheap U shape wiring at the end. After a throughout cleaning of the grounding spot and tighten the screw everything work now.
