I
Wolfman,
have a '93 5-speed SL2 with DRL's but here in Canada the DRL's are the flashers, not the headlights. How will it affect the wiring?

Thanks,
Len

I'm looking at the same thing with a '94SL1. DRL's are the innermost set of lights, these are used as the turn sig's.

30= POS power supply (to what you want to turn on) the 30 indicates it is a 30 amp relay. Can handle a current load up to 30 amps)

87 What will GET that power once the relay is tripped

87a What will GET that power when the relay is NOT tripped

86 1/2 of the trip circuit (can be EITHER POS or NEG)

85 The other 1/2 of the trip circuit can also be EITHER POS or NEG but MUST be the opposite polarity of the 86 terminal for the relay to be tripped.

it should work with disabled drls, but don't just remove the relay, short it out so the right hi beam works to.(i know there is a how-to around here somewhere,can't remember who posted it).

don't know what happens with drls enabled

So, what exactly is it going to take to get this mod to work on a 2001 SC2? I presently have the DRLs short-circuited.

Hi-Ho Classic:

This is our classic version of the ever popular Hi-Lo beam modification. Enough to modify several vehicles with black or grey interior. $6.98

Hi-Ho Special:

The Hi-Ho Special is of the same quality of the Classic, but matches tan interiors. $4.25

Hi-Ho Sport:

The Hi-Ho Sport offers the quality of the Classic, but with the color Yellow. In addition to activating both high and low beams, it also gives your vehicle a sporty look and 5% performance increase*! $4.25

On my '03, here's the wire colors that matter:
Pink: High Beam ground (switched)
Blue: Low Beam ground (switched)
Brown: Marker HOT (switched)

NOTE: the turn signal lamp ALSO uses a brown wire. They look identical. Be sure to use the MARKER lamp, not turn signal. Also, it is a 18-20 guage wire, so the "add-a-tap" splices will not work properly (at least the ones I've seen only do 14-16 guage).

Don't forget to fuse the +12 Volt feed you'll need. Here's a link to my drawing: Diagram
I don't get why you are using the marker light in all this....

very nice picture....

Default Re: Vue is wired different

if the low beams are always on with the high beams, DRL is a problem as they use the high beams. the way around this so the low beams are on with the highbeams and sidemarkers.

Default Re: Hi/Low Beams at the Same Time

After 8-hours of ghetto-rigging this SOB, I've decided to just ghetto-rig it even further, because the whole thing is starting to PISS ME OFF.

1. The Fog/driving light kit wasn't at Wal-mart. Got a 4-wire adapter. NO RELAY. MORON! (I'm the moron, btw... nobody else...)

2. Got the relays and wiring. Didn't know how to connect them properly. F___.

3. Got some **** to connect them right. Got it rigged up and blew SOMETHING when I turned the engine over. F___

So now this is my plan: Run the power to my parking lamps, use the low-beams as the switch, highs as lamp, and ground it to chassis. Hook the power and ground wires to fog lights, so the fog lights will now by DRL's. Only problem with this is that I won't have DRL's with only parking lights on. Damn.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

ow that hurt my eyes!!!

FYI in some areas having more then 4 lamps on is illegal (lows=2, highs=2, fog=2, total=6, be careful when you use them all together)
