So I changed out the middle lights(highs) with bosch units from a benz(replaceable bulbs) now when i turn the lights on,they always light up,even with just the lows...

Should go..

Low beams---outside lights/lighted inside lights off
High beams----outside lights/lighted second stage and inside(highs)lighted.


how it works now(wrong)

Low beams---All lights lit
High beams---All lights lit and the outside goes to low stage?

Help!I have not changed the wiring,and it worked fine before the install of the benz inside fogs..

I had the same issue with my '74 Celica, which someone had installed those lights on. Pertano on here told me that this is what happens to everyone who uses those lights, I guess. I didn't pry for an explanation, but at the very least, it's not your car at fault here. :lol:

Well there has to be a reason?it has to be a wiring difference,or the outside lights need to see resistance? Pertano? Somebody?

Is it a 3 prong (pin) style or just two? I believe our high beams are only 2 wire, but I don't think there's a 3rd wire on the plug.

I used to have an adapter sold by Cibie in Japan that was to prevent the lights to stay on when the low beams were on. I dont know why but that is what I used and never had a problem. On another note, you should run relays to your headlights to make them brighter if you have not done so already. H4 or H1 bulbs require more juice than the standard wiring can handle.

Did the same thing on mine. tried to switch polarity and it almost burned my car down(it shorted the wire. Dumb of me!! :evil:

Robakun, you still remember the adapter you bought as well as the relays you used?
Anyway, since I almost destroyed my wirings, Now my low beams just stays open all the time.

Yes, I think it need more juice than the ordinary set it has. so now, I'm bringing the car to an elecrician to install relays. Can you use the relays from the bimmers? Or jsut any standard relays one can get at autozone?

thanks.

Some of those housings have isolation issues to ground. I have had this happen before with some old E-spec Hellas on a FJ62. Remove the bulb from the housing, turn the light on with the bulb out, and see if the problem goes away. If it doesn't, check the factory headlight relay or switch aren't melted/shorted across.
