this might help. i installed hella 700 last night in my truck. do all the wiring that the instructions say, but instead of having the green wire go to the Hi beam splice the green wire into the positive wire of the cigarette lighter in your cab. this will let you turn the hella lights on no mater your headlights are on or off, u just half to have your key in and turned to ON or ACC

If you have run the green wire to the fuse box using a fuse tap, make sure you fill the number of fuse "ports". My tap had room for 2 fuses, and would not work with only one.

EDIT: I should have looked at the diagram a little more. Just ground run the wire that is connected to the high beams to a positive source and you'll be good to go. I would hit up the fuse box to a switched source that is ONLY on when the ignition is in the acc/on position so you dint run your battery down.
