"Where did you live?" or "Where do you live?" are correct because, if the helping verb is the second form of the verb, it should be followed by the infinitive or the first form of the verb.

You are watching: Where did he live

For example, we say, "When did you move to New York? or "Did you move to New York?"

Even if the question is in the present,the main verb should be in the first form of the verb, so "When do you moved to New York?" is wrong.

The rule applies to almost all helping verbs; for example:

When did you come?

When do you come?

When will you come?

When can you come?

Why should you come?

In all those examples we can not replace come with came.
