I may have misinterpreted something you were asking. I thought you were originally saying that your harness only had two terminals. I am seeing three in your pictures. What was the original problem you were asking about?

The terminal that connects to the existing harness only has two blades/two wires. The wire harness has 3 blades and three wires?

So, are you saying the headlight bulb terminals only have blades? Or what do you mean when you say the terminal that connects to the existing harness? In all of the pictures you have posted, I don't see anything with two terminals on it.

The male connector on the the relay harness only has (2) blades/wire. The female connector on the factory wire harness has (3) slots/wires.

The female connector on the relay harness has (3) slots/wires.

Let me know if this makes sense.

Thanks for trying to help me out.

Ah ok. It must have been the angle of the first picture you took. My brain is probably just trained and I thought it had three. That third wire would be for a ground. If you have grounded the harness already, then the third female terminal on the new headlight connectors has a ground from it. The two wires coming from the male terminals on that connector are picking up the signals from the low and high beam signals coming from the switch. Does that make sense? I can be a little confusing sometimes when I am explaining things.
