Why do you think the delay module is the cause of the headlights not working ? What else have you inspected and/or tested ?

I don't know how he determined this, but I put one in the mail for sofixj and now it's stuck in a sorting facility since the post office here while they're on strike!

If it's not the delay module, I'd feel like less of a dooche if he gets the lights sorted out, if it is the module I still feel like a retard for mailing it' express' to have it sit in a pile gathering dust.

Then splice the wires together to bypass the module.

The white/grey wire is power from the ignition.(This also goes to the gauges, ignition interlock magneto, overhead console, and brake light switch.) That is how the module detects if the key is on or off. Work with the rest of the wires and ignore that one.
