Default Bypassing DRL Relay question.

Ok guys I read your article on running a jumper wire from the 30 and 87 on the relay, and I think either you mistyped the correct terminals or its different from my model. Again I have a 200 bonneville. I actually jumped the ones you stated and nothing, I have the front left head light out, I tried a different testing combo, and came up with a 86 & 87 that worked for me. Just wanted to state that, incase anybody else is having problems. What years is it 30 & 87? Cuz technically there is 2 87'* on my relay, one actually looks like its tied in with the #30 terminal internally. Maybe a ground? Can I get some input to as if I have it right? Its ON obviously lol. The paper clip is just for testing, I ordered the terminals and have the wire here at the shop.

This is really weird. I'm curious to see what other people say, since all I had to do to disable DRL'* is to pull that relay.

You're right to just dis-able DRL'* all you need to do is pull the relay. You to make that jumper to get the function of your drivers high beam back. The highbeam is ground thru that relay

We discussed this already. The jumper DOES go from 30 to 87, there'* a picture floating around that I made that proves this.
