Ok, here is where I made my mistake. You must splice two wires in here and I used those plastic crimp connectors to make it easy. The problem was, one did not make good contact and as a result, when I operated my high beams, my headlights cut out totally. SugarRushMurano prompted me to recheck all my connections, and voila!
As per the image below, (but DO NOT use plastic splices), without cutting the wires strip about 1/2" of insulation from both the solid red, (identified above), and the red with white stripe, about an inch away from the grey connector they attach to.
Alternatively, you can cut these wires and strip about 3/8" of insulation from each if that is easier for you.
Take two lengths of the wire you bought, about four feet each, (which will be way too much but makes them easier to run up once the unit is installed) and strip the ends and SOLDER one lead to each of the two exposed connector wires. Label the one to the solid red as #30, and the one to the red with white stripe as #85 at both ends of the wire with masking tape or whatever. Clean off your soldered connections, and wrap them each good with electrical tape. Thats it, ready to reinstall the headlights!
