Default Need wiring diagram for Interior wiring. Headlight switch

I took a peak into the truck today to see about why the parking lights are always on. Well, the wires from the headlight switch are FRIED! burnt to a crisp and bare wire showing. I am going to need to re-wire it. So looking for a diagram to follow. It looks like they run up behind the cluster, and they dont look damaged that far down.

Yeah, the PO said he had a problem with the lights when towing a U-haul trailer. Must have burned them up

Dont mean to be pickey, how about location of wires and what harness they are in? What and where the physically run?

thanks. If I need too, I will cut wires on both ends, run new.

----------

I have confirmed that the wire is only burnt a short ways, just far enough back to not be able to work with it

WHHAAAATT!! How prey tell did this happen?????? Was he towing a 50ft box??? It looks like the white/black wire is totally melted, so it was probably the one of that overloaded and its heat melted everything else. What is the other one that is reduced to completely bare copper??

I think before you turn this back on, you need to try to figure out how the F that happened. That wiring should never get that hot because the fuse would pop long before it got to that point.

yeah, not sure. Headlights work, blinkers work. Park lights stay on unless fuse is pulled. No control of cluster dimmage (?) No fuses blown. Beats me.

----------

looks like white black and tan/? And it looks like this two are fused together somewhere, bypassing relays to power the parking lights.

I think I got most of it sorted out by PM. Hes going to have to cut out and replace the tan/white power feed to the switch and the white black out of the switch to the parking light circuit. Bypassing the relay entirely is going to be fine since its only actual function is blinking the lights with the keyfob or other GEM functions. So basically it depends how far back the wires are melted to determine how involved this will be.
