High Beam Indicator Light

Hi everyone a newbie here; I have a problem with wiring in a new highbeam indicator light. The printed circuit board on my 1977 Chevy Pickup that I just recently bought, was burnt complete out looks like it had had a short at some time. Will I was going to use the wires from the plugin to the circiut board to wire in the the two wire bulb that i bought, and used clips to test it first and it worked. Then I traced the wires and cliped them and wired in the bulb but it does not work now. Any help or ideas of where i went wrong would be greatly appreciated.
OH! I checked the fuses and all appear to be ok.


THANKS

THANKS for the replies

Have been to the + side no power there and I called all the bone yards in houston to find a circuit board and no body had a good one. I am going to try running a line to the side of the switch itself tomorrow. to try it and then I am going to change some other things on the dash lights.
Well post what happens tomorrow. Can't wait to start on the FORD I have. I am going to have to install a painless wiring kit in it.. It is a 1950 ford pickup.

Thanks

Figured it out HURRAY!!!!!!

HI ALL
I Figured it out today after playing with it for about two days saturday and sunday, but found another problem, no ground.
There is not ground thru the whole wiring harness. Great right
guess it is time for a new wiring harness for the steering column.
Now to figure out what is wrong with the ground. Fun time but fixable for now and drivable for now. At least I can fix the High Beam indicator light and pass inspection.. Thanks for all the help and have a good week all.
