Does anyone who has the highbeams relayed to turn the low beams on have any melting issues with stock bulbs? Considering doing this tonight.

I have had the two light on at the same time for about a year .
I have experienced no light bulb burn out so far.
I personaly would recommend the system from my night driving.
I have had only one flash back from other drivers since i had the HD lights installed.
I got the Keep the two light sources on at the same time from the good people on this foram.
Thank you all.
Firefighter.

No issues. I've driven at night with the brights on for maybe 10-20 mins at a time.

Hi all,

Know this is an older post but super keen to do this modification to my new to me ‘97 Riviera. As many know it is a low mileage original supercharged Riviera that I purchased early last year and imported to Australia.

As we live in the country, lighting is critical to avoid our kangaroos at night and early mornings.

I am using a Narva double relay to have the low beams come on with the high beams but am somewhat confused about the wiring for this modification. Have wired up standard relays for QH conversions on other Buicks but not sure on this.

Just need to know which wires go to which terminal numbers.Write-Up: Low Beams + Brights On at Same Time - Page 4 Img_6914

Have sent a message to the writer Eldo but happy if others chime in.

my ‘97 has the DRLs which I want to keep but not sure how this all wires in using the double relay. Do I need to add a third relay to cover the DRLs? Picture of what I am using below and BTW this relay has both #87 terminals powered (not #87 and #87A) when the relay is switched, giving four powered terminals when both relays are switched.

Many thanks in advance.

Rodney
