somewhere in the wiring is messed up. the brights dont run with the low beams at the same time.

also change the fuse or check it.

i aint trying to get the highs and the lows to work at same time, its the FOG LIGHTS and the highs i did the mod on and its only one wire and its for the ground on the fogs so in theory it shouldn't mess with the brights but i will check the fuse but the fuse runs the low and highs so i don't think that will be it but you never know. any other ideas would be great

Looks to be doing this mod.

Fog Light OverRide

Might have touched something and popped a fuse.
