    I need to know how to wire the second set of lights. /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif
    The botom ones that are only suposed to come on when the brights are on(in which case all four lights should be on)I tried to wire them up last night by just taping into the ground and bright wires and runing them to the lights but they now have a strange backfead problem. Now when the dims are on, the top lights come on and the bottoms come on also but extreamly dim. Then when the brights are on the bottom ones come on bright and the top ones are dim /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif what is going on?

    can you replace the whole harness that is meant for a quad headlight setup?

    those harnesses are known for backfeeding problems, a grounding nightmare for some reason.
