you need to replace the sockets. the sockets you need are the exact same as the ones for the rear tail light (6pin). buy these from the dealership or pull from the junkyard

here is your diagram


the new sockets are symmetrical btw (that is, they will be mirror images to each other)

Thank you. I am wondering about the symmetrical part. Does this mean that you are showing the 6pin socket for the driver's side and the other side will be the mirror with the wires on the opposite side? Also, with the diagram you are showing, is this as viewed from the wire side or the socket side?

Here is another diagram of the conversion this may help you as you look at your old connectors and wire position

Just wanted to add this in... here's another view in color. :thumbsup:

The blue wire is for city lights. You will have to splice the blue wire onto the wires operating the corner lamps.
