Well, the fun has ended for me. When I shortened the wires as suggested, which makes lots of sense, I ran into a problem. The turn signals were not connected but I wanted to check the headlight assembly to ensure it works. Some of the wires started to overheat and begin to melt. Pulled the key, stopped the melting but that is it for me. I know when my efforts are finished. I do thank you for your assistance but for some reason, I have screwed up and don't plan on touching it again. I will leave it for someone who has more knowledge and ability that I do. Obviously I did something wrong, possible missing a ground wire but that is it. Thanks again.
