Rear Seat Delete Builder
Has anyone figured out how to bypass them,so they stay on when the brights are turned on? On my camaro it was a simple grounding of one wire under the hood on the foglight relay.
notgetleft said:Just curious, but why do you care if your fogs stay on with your high beams? It's not like they'd provide any useful light compared to the earth scorching brightness of the highs as is.
And of course in some places it's actually illegal to have more than 2 sets of lights on at the same time.mistermike said:I agree that trying to fire up the fogs with the brights on may be of questionable utility. You can't really make a case for appearance, because hopefully, you dim the brights for oncoming traffic. I don't think they will contribute meaningfully to the visibility, and you are just imposing an additional load on the engine/alternator.
My 300M's lows stayed on with the highs...I think that the only vehicles that don't work that way are the ones that have lows and highs in the same bulb (the low filament in my Explorer would shut off when I went to the highs).CMNTMXR57 said:Have you noticed that our low beams stay on with the highs?
Something cars Stateside can't do per Federal regulations.
Sorry, I guess I should've clarified, those with two bulb setups and from GM. Most GM vehicles used 9006/9005 series bulbs.phobos512 said:My 300M's lows stayed on with the highs...I think that the only vehicles that don't work that way are the ones that have lows and highs in the same bulb (the low filament in my Explorer would shut off when I went to the highs).
California, for one.Cosmoso4 said:We had an '86 Sunbird GT that had 4 headlights, the low beams would go off when the high beams came on. I thought it was just that car model as I found an '86 Sunbird SE that worked "normal". My wife's GP works with 4 lights on high beam. Where is it illegal to have more than 2 sets of lights on at a time?
The only thing I'm not sure about is where it says "dual headlamp system"...I'm assuming that's two filaments in one bulb but that may be incorrect.CADMV said:Maximum Number of Lamps
