I have a rare 01 2wd pathfinder I need to know which of the three wires is hot on the headlight harness

Here is a little detective work for you!
First, identify the color of the ground wires, and that should be the same color for nearly all of the electrical things under the hood, but pay particular attention to things like lights.
There will be one wire of that color to every light.
Next you will likely have two wires, one for high beam, one for low beam, and those can be matched. Highs one color, lows another.
None of these wires should be hot with the headlights switched off, except that, during the 2001 automobile era, some cars and trucks had driving lights that were on whenever the car was moving!
God bless your efforts.

I spliced new headlight sockets (that go into the headlight housing). ever since i have had poor low beams but great hi beams. but if i reverse the lines ten i have hi beamish low beams and no hi beam

if you have H4 bulbs in the head lights ( 3 pins on the bulb then the centre pin is the earth wire and needs to be connected correctly. I am thinking that you have the lights connected incorrectly so that the lights are trying to earth out through each other and the earth pin is a power wire. remove the bulb and using a multimeter turn on the high beams and find which wire has the power. next turn on the low beams and find which wire has the power . the last wire should be a dead short to earth. Re-splice the wires accordingly.

I have a wiring problem.

Need your make and model. Usually low/high beam lights have 3 inputs. While high beam only lights have only two. Every make/model has different color schemes so that's why it's important to have full make/model. Someone with experience could easily do it with a multi-meter. It's all 12 volts. One ground, two hot wires one for low one for high.

High Beam Wire Color? Distinction between three?

with a test light ground connected to the positive battery terminal,,the one that will light up the light is the ground...the other 2 wires are the low and high beam. cut one of those,if the low beam is now on,you cut the high beam wire. if the high beam stays on,you cut the low beam wire.
