Sounds like you may have fried the bulb.

You will need only one ground. Check out this image for the pinout


Common is your bk/y, high is your rd/bk, and low is your Rd
Which should be green--bk/y, Blue--rd/bk , and white--Rd

You can twist the rd/bk's together, or just cap one of them off.

If you arent using a city light, cap those wires off individually.

test the bulb on a test lead if you arent sure if you blew the filament, or just try a new one. If it still doesn't work, check your fuses.

EDIT: Looking at your pics again, it looks like you have two rd/bk due to your city light. You can cap off the one from the city light if you aren't using it.

Something seems fishy in that schematic. I don't normally see city lights wired to the highbeam circuit. Then again, I'm in the US, so I don't normally see city lights.

and I didnt cap that wire I removed it all together because I removed the dash board circuit all together
Ok, I get it now. I thought the little bulb in the "original schematic" pic was a city light (like in the other schematic you posted) but its the dash indicator.

with that cleared up....

The thing that is puzzling me is that even if you hooked everything up to the bulb incorrectly, it shouldn't burn out. It may not work correctly, but there should not be any combination of incorrect wiring that will blow the bulb. Its possible that the bulb housing is grounded and connected the "common" pin to power may have blown your fuse, and could have left a burnt mark somewhere.

As long as you hook the bk/y up to the "common" pin on the bulb, the other two connections don't matter (other than the switch being backwards).

I would check all your fuses and go from there.
