2000-2005 Pontiac Bonneville Remove relay #30 in the fuse panel under the hood. For the high beams to work correctly a jumper wire should be ran from 87a to 30 where the relay would normally be. If this isn't done the driver'* side high beam will not operate.

Yes, the only time they'll come on like that is when you turn them on yourself.

Okay, cool. Glad to help.

I found that how-to on the same site I found the one for my car, and it worked like a charm for me.

INCORRECT!

I have that relay removed from my 2002, and the low beams still come on when the key is turned. I also have HIDs, but they heat up pretty fast so it'* a non-issue.

Also, that'* my picture.

You'll have to short the daylight sensor. That'* also a pain in the *** to do.

Also, by reading your sig, might I suggest going to lower color temps for your bulbs? 10k bulbs are fairly ineffective as a light source, and seriously hurts oncoming drivers eyes even if your bulbs are aimed correctly.
