73 Corvette headlights not working

Bought a 73 recently and the owner told me the headlights sdidnt work. Did some digging, tested the bulbs- they light fine, tested the headlight switch- has power to red and orang at dimmer all over pins have good ground. tested hi beam switch- works fine between hi and low beam. All testing of light functions was done by jumping the light blue wire under the center console near the shifter directly to 12v hot lead. Otherwise the blue lead sits unconnected to anything under the console. Wear should it go and will it fix the headlights if i correct it properly?
