wiring up a highbeam indicator bulb

Hi Guys,

A little help please. I'm finishing up my custom dash in my S10 by doing the wiring. I'm having a problem finding the right wire to tap into for my indicator light bulb. Under the dash I'm testing all the wires with the test light but can't find the one that lights up when I hit the highbeams.
I tried to splice into the wire at the highbeam headlight bulb. I thought I had it but blew a fuse.Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

Thom

Find where the light was on your old gauge cluster and see what was near it. If you have something that was near it already working chances are the wire you need will be in the same bundle of wires.
