    I have a '05 2500HD with autoheadlamps. I want to hook up my low beams to turn back on when i use my high beams. I have done this on many trucks before, but I am unsure if the auto headlamps will get messed up. Has anyone tried this on theirs?

    a diode eh? i thought it had to wired up with a relay, but thats what i have been seeing on this topic. So i take it with the diode, you modify the gm circuit board to activate the relay? hmm, i wonder if i will find this thread with this diode you speak of.

    Thanks for the info. I will see if it works on my '05. Seems alot easier then soldering in a relay and cutting up the factory harness.

    Thanks for that link. I followed their idea, although my wire coloring was different, and I now have All 4 on high. It cost me $ 0.64! And I can do a second truck since the diodes come two to a pack! Thanks again.
