wires to foot dimmer switch

I am slowly working towards an inspection.
I have a foot dimmer switch but no wires going to it (1985 cj 7 auto 258)
Does anyone know qhat wire go here and how they connect?

I also have most of the other wiring accounted for. The only think i can think of right now is that my right front blinker will not blink with the headlights on. All others are ok with lights on or off but the right front will not blink with lights on.

Thanks and I am getting closer.
Wes

The front fixtures use special shoulder screws to hold them on. The shoulder holds the ear of the fixture to the grill for the ground. If it is missing, that can happen.

There should be a three pronged plug down there with two gray wires ou tof one pin, one for low beam, one for fogs and two gray wire out of another pin, one with a white stripe for the high beam and the other with a blue stripe I think for the dash light. The last wire is red with white stripe and there may be two wires in the pin.

Sorry about missing a day.... had this one in my hand. The single on top comes from you headlight switch. it comes dab smack in the middle on terminal "H" and is red with white trace.
on one ofo the low 2 terminals (it does not matter which) there are two grey wires. One runs through the bulkhead and down the drivers side fender toward your headlamps, this if for low beams. the other grey is for fog's as mike said but i can never quite find the other end of mine.
on the other lower terminal i have a grey with a black trace that ran over to my high beam indicator lamp and a grey with a red trace (slightly heavier ga wire) tht met up with the grey going through the firewall and to the headlights.
Get a good dimmer switch at Napa $20, get the pigtail from Advance about $3.00. ROck and roll!

Now if you have H4's or HID's thats a whole 'nother story!
