Not going to pull the plastics off, but I thought it was a yellow wire. All it takes is a sharp pointed test light... probe each wire and cycle the shutter. Pretty quickly done.

So I looked for that pink wire and I see a pink and white wire and a reddish/black wire.I went with the pink/white wire but I can't get the high density light out of my dual density Denali DX.Any suggestions?
