    18's projector headlight hid 10k fogs smoked out hid 10k LED's everywhere
    This has proberly been asked 3456 times.
    I added projector headlight in my 2010 tacoma, The headlight assembly holds a hi beam and a low beam, I have HIDs in both hi and low,

    My problem is my low beams dont stay on when i turn my hi beams on. I have 4 ballest, one for each bulb.

    Any ideas for a fix so they both stay on when I turn my hi beams on???

    From what I have seen they are due to the bulb size, H10 but Ill check into that being the case. !
    Thanks

    My corolla uses 9006 and 9005 bulbs for low and high. Only one is on at a time. Whatever you are trying to do is most likely going to involve some wiring and relays as well as the know how.
