    Question wiring

    Does anyone know how to hook up the wires for the tail lights on a 1993 silverado pickup ? The seem to have come apart some how and I don't want to hook them up wrong.

    Do you mean they came apart from the socket that the bulb goes in?

    If so there is a simple way to find out what goes where with just a trouble light.

    Simple ground the trouble light and check each wire. With the lights on.

    The ones that light the trouble light will be live.

    Now all you need to do is look at the socket and the way the bulb fit in the socket.

    Or you could just take the other socket out and look at that one.

    Now if it’s the wiring harness. AutoZone has a helpful section that if you join will give you the wiring diagram.
