    I think you might have it backwards.

    This is the only socket configuration that puts out any light

    I believe I’m activating the daytime running lights with my high beam switch currently.

    You might want to re-think the configuration and confirm them 1 by 1.

    Not saying it’s right, but at least I can drive with them currently. The low beams are a huge upgrade from what were probably the original headlights.

    If anyone has any info on how toyota operates the high beams it’d be much appreciated.

    A basic 3 wire headlight should be the low wire hot with low beam, and both low and high beam wires should be hot with the high beam.
