OK, This can't be so hard. The low beam bulbs are 9006, single intensity, 2 wire pigtail connector bulbs. The brown wire from the pigtail is plugged into the brown ground wire in the wiring harness plug. There is a yellow/white wire from the pigtail that is plugged into the yellow/white wire of the harness plug. However, in the harness plug, there is a white/violet wire that comes from the hi beam harness plug that is supposed to supply power to the lo beam light when the hi beams are turned on. However, there is no physical connection between the white/violet wire and the lo beam light bulb itself - on my car...

A picture of the plug from a working system would explain so much!

white/violet- + wire to left high beam
yellow/white- + wire to left low beam
yellow/blue- + wire to right low beam
white/blue- + wire to right high beam
all the brown wire are gound

here's more from your high beam indicator
white/violet wire is connected to fuse#1
from fuse #1 the white?violet is connected to your LH high beam.
yellow /whire wire from your left hand high beam is connected to fuse#13, yellow /blue wire to your RH low beam is connected to Fuse#14 and last
the White/blue wire is connected to fuse#2
this should be enought for you to trace all the wire. I look at how my car works low beam 2 lights
are ON high beam all four lights should be ON.
The fog works only with the low beam and turns off as you swich to high beam.
