Need help rewiring

So after some attempts I still can't figure out how to hook my clearance lights back to there switch. I've traced the clearance lights wires to this bus bar they both have a double ended fork and is connected to another wire which leads under the dash. Clearance lights are purple and green. Any ideas would be appreciated. I presume I use a double forked wire just dont know where to plug it it.

clearance lights are either on all the time with key on for newish stuff and the older stuff could be wired into the headlight swich.
but yeah definitely need to know what you have for a better answer.

That's my bad I have a 1996 chevy bluebird 25ft school bus. I've removed all the other switches just trying to rewire the clearance lamps but the wires from the switch got unplugged so I don't know where to plug them back in.

i have never owned a blue bird so cant say for sure.
others should be along soon.
they are either on with key on or on with light switch.
pictures of your dash area and headlight switch would help.

ok i would have to start with cleaning that terminal strip and probably replacing every connector in there?
but thats me?
obviously that is not a sealed compartment but should be.
that relay/switch is cheap enough to replace so why not.
do you have a multi meter?
use that to find a terminal on that strip that is power on with key on and forget the relay wire in a toggle or just power the clearance lights with key on.
on your control pad is a button for cl lamps that should be your clearance light.
i like to change everything to illuminated toggle switches that fit the same whole so you know when a switch is on or off.
