Having all lights on at once, Brights, Dims, and Fog.

I am not knowledgeable about messing with the wires on our trucks so I was wondering is there a way to leave all your lights on when you put your brights on. I would like my dim, brights and fog lights to remain on when I turn on the brightrs. On older chevys there was a kit you could purchase. I hardly ever use my brights except when riding the levees early in the morning or late in the evening. I'm sure the fog light mod will enable the fogs to remain on, but how about the dims?

Not a problem man thanks for the info. I thought the fog light anytime mod would only allow the fog lights to be on any time, I didn't think it affected the dim lights. I have been meaning to do the fog light mod but have just been putting it off. I have messing with wiring on vehicles unless it is just for play, or a complete new rewire.

I know in my 01 Tacoma I could pull the headlight lever back just enough for the lows and the highs to be on at the same time.

The fog anytime mod ONLY allows the fogs to be on whenever the key is on. Nothing else.

You would need something to send power to the low filaments. IE, a relay or something that doesn't also send power to the highs when just the lows are on.... Maybe a diode (limit electricity flow to only highs to lows, and not from lows to highs)?

If you had your dims and brights on at the same time, wouldn't it be too hot and burn out the bulbs really fast?

Agreed... you can do it with a relay but i would not reccomend it.
if you had sepperate bulb for both lows and highs then yes very cool..

I did it on my Old Passat Here is a picture...

Man that car was fun....

yeah, I would think it would burn the bulb out faster. Also consider the fuse to make sure it doesn't overload.

When I did the fog light mod, I was able to keep the fogs on and have the brights on at the same time.

That's the point of that mod. The OP wants LOWS and brights on at the same time... Not just fogs, but low beams AND high beams as well. The fog light mod has absolutely nothing to do with how hi/low beams work.

the problem is that both the low and high beam come from the same bulb. on the 90's model chevys there where 2 seperate bulbs, therefore really easy to do.
