Default Recon Headlight Install Help

Hey Folks!
I am wanting to install my Recon headlights but am at a bit of a standstill. The wires coming from the signal lights has THREE wires, not two. The instructions,which suck, say I should tap into the one positive wire that is solid. Well neither of the two is solid. On the drivers side there are two positives, white/green and white/blue. I can't get at my electrical tester at this moment to figure out which one to use.
Has anyone installed Recons and is able to give some advice on which wire I use?
Thank you!
p.s.
Thanks for replying earlier Brad!

Thanks for Replying Bordin. I HAVE looked at your thread several times, including just now.
In the picture with the wiring in your hand, I don't see the wires for the halos/LEDS. Maybe because you've installed HIDS instead.
My truck has the quad headlights and I am supposed to splice the LED/Halos from the Recons onto the running/park light.
What I am asking is which wire do I use? There is three wires to the signal light: One black(negative) and two White (positive). The two positive are either signal OR running/park. I want to splice the Halo/LEDs onto the running/park lights.
Thank you for any info. I emailed recon but got no reply.

Ah I see what you mean now.

My LEDS/HALOS are wired to a seperate switch instead of my parking lights. So I can turn them on whenever I Want. I like to leave them on when I head into stores ha

Best thing to figure that out is to put your parking lights on (Selector switch) and take a voltmeter out. Get on your neutral (-) than find your positive(+) with the steady 12V. Its pretty simple, well if you have experience with DC electrical circuits and a meter of course.

Even if you want to isolate it better. leave all your lights off and shove your hazards on (or turn signal your choice) and than apply your voltmeter to your neutral (-) and your Positive (+) (it might be to fast to read) you will see it fluctuating on/off/on/off. You get the idea you DONT want to slice onto that wire

Here's my thread on my Switches for my halos/leds also

Its sounds like you only tinker with electrical once in a blue moon. Picking up a cheap DVOM will help you greatly. You don't need anything elaborate or expensive like a fluke. I think you can normally find one for $10.00 or less...even at walmart.

I had to use a voltmeter as well, I had the same problem. Luckily we had one around, saved us a trip to the store!
