This seems like one of those things that should be a no brainer but I think I just another pair of eyes for this to make sense.
I need to replace the actual socket in the dash and I couldn't find an exact fit for it. I know they are "universal" but frankly the closest one I could find doesn't fit worth a damn (The outer housing where the black or negative wire connects does not fit and from the picture it wasn't used in OEM.). Anyways how does the connection work between these two things. I can't remove the old plastic connectors without cracking them. They are riveted in.
And Yes, I did check the fuses.
