    You can Either take the dash apart and unsolder the LED off of the circuit board or make some connections on the tire pressure module under the dash behind the ac controls

    You (or the Stealership) can do it digitally (benefit is it is non-destructive).

    Didn't mean to post that last comment, I meant to say does anyone here have a link to a decent write up on how to make the low beams stay on with high beams? Thanks in advance

    Nice write up and great mod. There has been times I wish it didnt dim with headlights on. Like during the day but raining, and still bright enough to make that hard to see while dimmed. +1 to you. I might just have to do this one.

    Thanks, I figured it out. Mounted above mirror. Just wanted to double check to see if there was any known issues.

    I don't think that is possible since the high and low beams both run off the same bulb

    Yeah, I believe there is a way to wire it to work also, IIRC. And I've read the few people who've done it, have not had any issues with heat or bulb life. :cool:
