Headlight upgrade problem!!

Hi guys.
Iím new in this forum and this is my first post, I want to upgrade the headlights of my Sahara and I found a little surprise.

I bought a led headlight with an H4 connector and it comes with two wires, one for the DLR and another for turn light.

The original and actual headlight is a Hella H4 halogen, but when I removed it I founded two connectors!?, the main one (H4 I suppose) and other for a Little bulb. How I connect the new headlight with one connector H4 to two connectors?

And other problem is that the turn light (the little light under the headlight) has two wires and no three like all videos I found on internet. How I connect the DRL and the turn light wires of the led headlight if I miss one wire?

Thanks!!

What year Sahara? Is it an export model?

I have a 2012 and it only has one connector.

The other connector calls in spanish "cola de pescado" (fish tale), for the position light.

Position light sounds like a side marker light.

Is the small light connector part of the factory harness?

The new headlight had additional wires? These sound like they are there so you can wire the halo to either the turn signal or as a DRL. Use of which would require tapping into either the turn signal or an an ignition power source so the halo would illuminate when the ignition is on.

I'll try to take some pics today and I'll share it with you, please.

Yes, the new led headlight has two additional wires also the H4 connector, and I think one y for the halo, the DRL and the other is for the turn signal into the same headlight.
