Well now that'* confusing. I have an 03 with low beam DRLs and your dads 03 is high beam. What month in 02 was your dad'* built? Mine was in September so I wonder if they switched mid model year

I'll look into it later on tonight
I just installed HIDs on his bonneville low and fogs
And I was kinda surpised when I saw his highbeam as drl
Thought they were all the same
Also another better feature in his over mine is when I switch from low beam to high on mine the low beam shut off with the fogs, so only highbeam on, were on my dad'* SLE when you activate the highbeam low beam stays on as welll

My 02 is the same way. I call it "all 4 on high" since all 4 bulbs are one. Only my fogs shut off when I switch to highbeams.

Yeah I wish my gxp was like that, it really sucks with HIDs now because it take like 20 or 30 seconds for them to go on and it'll be too dark till they warm up

There should be a way you can make your operate like mine. I know in the Avalanche world 2002-2006 would swap between highs and lows. The guys over there tinkered with it and found a way to make all 4 stay on with the highs. If you want I'll look up the diagram to maybe give you an idea of how to go about it.

That would be great! I'd really appreciate it
I've been wanting to ask for a while but I keep forgetting
Everytime I hit the highway late at night I have to hold my highbeam forward till it warms up then flicker it backwords ( if I pull the switch forward low beam stays on, if I push it back that'* when it shuts off)

Sooo... basically, I should only need the wiring harness to handle the extra load.
