Default Headlight wiring or relay operations

Does anyone know how to prevent my lowbeams and foglights to stay ON while the Highbeams are on? I noticed that the lowbeams 9006 and my fog/driving lights turn off when I have my Highbeams on 9005/HIR1/9011.

I found how to disable my DRL Daytime Running Lamps, so I'm not replacing 9006 bulbs often, at $39.99 a pair for Sylvania Ultra Silverstars, I'm not having them on all the time..

I've read your post a couple times and I'm still not sure what you are asking. Try rephrasing your question so that we can get you a good answer.

When you kick your High Beams on, the Low beams, and Fog/Driving lights turn off. Is there anyway to disable this feature, and have all lights on when the High Beams are active?

Got it! Yep you can. However, running with more than 4 forward facing lights on is against the law in all states. The exception is off road. But, your vehicle is licensed for on road use and that trumps the exception.

I only would use my High beams when needed, but i provides alot more light with all Low/High/Fog. I would not run them all the time, that would probably melt the headlight assembly.. Only for short runs thru dark strips.. We have a lot of Deer and their numbers are growing daily.
