Default High Beam warning and turn signal problem

I'm having some electrical problems this week, on the message center I get a light High Beam Out, but it is working fine, and when I try the turn signals both sides flash at the same time. All of the bulbs seem to be working. I read somewhere it may be a broken ground, or something with the fog light ground, anyone know where these grounds attach? A photo would be amazing!
Thanks
Dave

Default Fixed it!

All fixed. After some more searching the site I found others that had the same problem, so I pulled on the ground above the drivers side headlight and the small wire came right off of the terminal. So I cut the large wire and put a crimp terminal on both wires and it worked!

Had I seen this post in time I would have suggested just that. I had similar electrical issues on my 2002 and pulling on that ground wire caused it to fall out.

Yes glad I read that, the day before I looked at that ground and it was all green corrosion. I took off the bolt and sanded it down to bare metal, as well as the terminal connected to the two wires and they looked fine. The small wire must have been broken inside the plastic insulation as after reading the article I went out and pulled on the wire and it broke right off!
