    Low beams are low beams and high beams are only high beams. On my other plow the highbeams are both low and high. Why wouldn't they be working like this? Ideas are appreciated, Thanks!

    It's a Chevy vers a Ford wiring Ford keeps both low and high beans on in high. Chevy doesn't. Unless you hotwire in a relay kit to your tk lights your sol for factory wiring

    Does your relay pack under the hood have four or five relays?

    Thanks for all your Ideas.
    I ended up just bypassing the stock lo-beam relay. Should work till it doesn't!
    I made a little video here if anyone else wants to do what I did.

    Haha, yeah Its been a stubborn battle getting any work out of this truck.
    I installed those frame braces and found out the frame was already cracked. So I had to weld all that up. Then the front of the truck would just sit on the ground with the plow on. So I jacked the torsion bars up....helped a little, installed timbrens, helped a little more. Then the truck kept dying with the plow operations so I cleaned all the connections, nothin. Got the biggest alternator and made a bracket to fit it on there, helped a little, got the biggest CCA battery and installed a secondary battery and that helped some more. Then the front end 4-wheel drive set up is a complete joke! You floor shift it into 4x4 on the floor and it sends a signal to HEAT up this little donkey dingy actuator that pushed the 4 wheel drive fork into place! Terrible idea! Takes forever at Zero when you're ramming snowbanks. Now this headlight issue is just ridiculous. I tried hotwiring and it worked great for about ten minutes but then it would click off. So I bit the bullet and bought the 3 dollar relay and installed it.
    Ready for the season now! hah
