Three wires on 07 Focus headlight socket?

Hello All: There are 3 wires on an 07 Focus headlight bulb/socket. There is a cenetr black wire - which is a ground wire of course. There are also 2 green wires - & this is where my question comes in - one green wire has a red stripe while the other has a black stripe. Which is high beam & which is low beam? My guess is that the red stripe is high beam - - -? Thanks

To find out yourself, go to an auto parts store and get one of those cheap test lights that have a clip W/ a long wire on one end and screwdriver handle with a probe on the other. Remove socket from housing, remove bulb without touching it with your bare hands (rag will do) With the clip on a good ground, probe the contact in the socket that has the green/red wire going to it. (headlights on and on highbeams) if the test light is lit...Bingo!!! highbeam wire...if not...well you know the rest!!

>To find out yourself, go to an auto parts store...

And buy a repair manual for your vehicle that has wiring diagrams.

Seriously, a repair manual only costs $15-20 and if you do much of anything on your car is a bargin to have as a reference.

In case anyone is interested, I got out the old VOM today & did some checking. The green wire with the red stripe is for the low beam & the green with black is for the high beam.
