    Default 96 2500 Headlight Ground wire

    I'm having some issues with my headlights on a 96 2500 4wd. Can anyone help me find the headlight ground wire? I would like to clean it and make sure it is tight. Thanks in advance!

    I don't have a wiring diagram; but if it was me, I'd pull the head light assembly and trace the ground wire. It's got to go to a body connector somewhere. I would suspect the fender, or the fender mounting assembly. The other option, is to just add a new ground to the fender, or to the light socket.

    headlight ground is located at the chassis ground for the battery.
