    pass is high, drive is low....guessing, but sounds right.

    You could always hook up with some household wire twist locks and test real quick....I do that all the time when I'm not sure on a connection...or just a touch of electrical tape to protect the twisted wires.

    Sounds right, but in many countries drive is high and you dip your lights with oncoming traffic. You could wire em up with jumpers and see which is brighter.
    My JDM motorcycle had drive and dip symbols on it.

    Just wire them (left and Right) the same if it is not correct you should be able to reverse them at the switch, or slide them out of the connector by sliding something thin in next to the female connector to push the catch over to slide the wire out.
