I've searched the threads in this section, but have not found exactly what I'm looking for. I'm looking for some direction in wiring my offroad lights to come on only with my HID headlights when in High beam.
Current headlamps: Monimoto Mini D2S bi-xenon projectors with Morimoto ballasts and harness.
Offroad Lamps: IPF 900XSs
I used to have my IPFs wired to my headlamps so they would come on with the high beams only, but when I switched to HID, I could not get them to operate only on High beam.
Originally, I connected the IPF relay wire to the red wire with blue stripe of the lamp connector on the drivers side, this triggered them on in High beam, but off in Low beam.
With the HID harness connected, that wire no longer triggers the relay, the blue high beam indicator on the dash no longer is illuminated, but the HIDs work perfectly in both Low and High mode.
Incidentally, if I put a stock bulb in the passenger's side, the blue indicator on the dash will illuminate on High and the red wire with blue stripe on the driver's side will again trigger the IPF relay.
With the HIDs in place, I have conducted continuity tests on all three lamp socket wires and the two wires for the solenoid, but could not find one that was live only with the high beams on.
The black solenoid wire triggers the IPF relay on Low but off on High, and the red solenoid wire will trigger on both High and Low.
For now, I am tapped into the red solenoid wire to use the IPFs, but would like them to come on only with High beam, can anyone help?
