Default HIGH beam and fog lights

Any one knows how to use both HIGH beam and fog lights at the same time . I mean a way to cheat the system so they wont shut off when using the high beam?

I thought about that .But when I had my former Grand Prix there was a way to mess with the relays and have both activated at the same time.

I thought we had this discussion some time ago.

Your former Grand Prix (what is it now?) has/had a very different wiring/electrical system from the Astra. Astra's use a can/bus system, where everything talks to each other (and sometimes to itself). Previous posters have indicated you might need to wire a separate relay.
