I need a little assistance please. I am installing the E/C led 10 watt lights. I want to be able to run them on hi or lo beams. That part I can not find in the instructions. There is a round push on connector on the lights. On the pigtails ( I will call them pigtails because I don't know any better) there is a pound push on connector and a spade connector and a female spade connector. I do not know where these pigtails go. Any help would be appreciated please.

Thank you.

They won't run on high Beam without major mods, as there are relays in between the switch and the power lead that goes to the + side of the light. The power draw when high beams on is offset by shutting down the Cowl lights. Cars operate the same way. You will need to run a direct feed to the light from the battery if you want it on all the time, through the switch.

Are you talking about cowl lights? Do you want them alwayson? If you do just utilize the panel switch that comes with them and leave it on all the time. It is bad business to wire them so they stay on all of the time with no means to shut them off anyway. If you do not have the OEM switch that fits in the left panel EC sells that also. Really not complicated at all.

I called today and spoke to EC tech. He told me all that I needed to know. Lights are installed and working the way they should. All is good in Northern California.

That's great. See how easy that was? They do know their stuff.

They are configured at EC so that they will operate on hi or lo beams. If you hook them up to the horn, when you use the horn they will strobe for about two seconds. I like that for safety reasons.
