Headlight Mods

Hey Guys:

I just registered on this forum. I am amember on a similar forum for the Duramax Chevys. My question is I have a 2002, 7.3, F-250 and I would like to modify the headlights to where both high and low beams are working together when the lights are on the high beam setting. That mod with the Chevy involved jumping across some circuit breakers under the hood with a small diode. Any ideas if that can be done with the Ford????

Thanks.

Hrmm -- First -- Welcome to the .org!

I'm too have not heard of this mod -- do the Chebby's have two bulbs? or just one like the Fords? We're still trying to figure out how to get the fog lights on with the high beams or parking lamps on the 01 and earlier models of trucks

You could take a 12 volt relay and do this:

Term 87 to 12 volts constant
Term 85 to ground
Term 86 to the high beam wire on your harness
30 to the low beam wire on your harness

you can use one relay to do both sides, just split the connection from term 30 into each low beam wire on either harness, you will need to use 12AWG-14AWG to be safe. Relay wire and time should be about $5.00 and 20 mins.
