    Stop shouting. Calm down and explain a little more. What's with the "TRUCK AND PLOW A TOTALY DIFFERENT WITH 2.5 ."?

    There are no relays in the EIS system. If you have a relay it's not EIS. If you have relays then yes you swapped some wires.

    Here is a link to the proper relay wiring configuration

    Sorry I did it on my way out the door. What I was trying to say is I have the EIS when I turn on the low beams only my highs come on, when I flip it to high beams only my lows come on. when i unplugg the lights from my truck the lights on my truck are normal. I am assuming that the little box on the wiring harness was a relay. But i guess it is not

    The pic in your Avatar appears to be a MT series. If so it does not have our EIS system. The MT would have a relay in the system.

    Yes it is a relay. Look at the pictures on the link and rewire your relay you switched the number 2 and number 6 wire.

    You do not have an EIS system.
