    Default Side lights off with dipped beam ?

    I wonder: is it possible to tech2 (or vaux-com) so that the side lights go out when you turn on the dipped beam ?

    Here in Sweden most cars are wired/programmed to have the dipped beam go on with the ignition, along with the side lights. Only way to turn off the headlights is by using the middle "side lights only" setting on the light knob. So, all in all it is impossible to drive around with all lights off on my car, an i do¨'t mind that, its just that i want the side light to be off in the "full on" position and then i could wire up my DRLs on the side light wire.

    anyone tried things like that on the tech2?

    yes Tech2 can turn of DRL.

    Front is controlled in the UEC and the rear in the REC.

    You cant have the sidelights off when you have turned the "knob" on..

    if i would retrofit anything it would be fog lights


    btw, i dont think aut headlights would do it...

    what i have is :

    pos 1 (off) dipped and sidelights on, no dimming of dash, no full beam
    pos 2 (sidelights on) sidelights on (duh) , dash dimmed
    pos 3 ("ON") dip and sidelights on, dash dimmed, (very) full beam if i want.

    the only change i need is pos 3: to dipped beam only, and full as required....


    oh, here´s a "sweden lights" pic for you Ken !

    Sorry what you wnat isnt possible with tech2.. you have to do it with relays..

    always like those "swedish" lights .. you can never miss them.. even 1 (UK) mile away.
