Drivers has two wires, passenger has one.

Drivers side needs need wires, one for the light circuit, the other for the key buzzer. They both work the same way. when door is closed, the pin holds to contactor apart ( open circuit ). When the door is opened, the contactors contact each other, closing the circuit, and always the current to go to ground. Thus lights go on and key buzzer sounds, assuming key is in ignition.
