Smile Can you activate the headlights motor without turning on the lights?

Hello

I just installed new headlights in my 96 ford probe GT. The headlights came with a blue "halo" that glows when the headlights are off. The only problem is that when I turn the headlights off, they, of course, close.

I was wondering if there were a way I could hook a switch up to the headlight system motors so I could open the headlights without turning them on. If anyone has some suggestions that would be great! Thanks!

William

Well, here's a lazy way. Turn on your head lights, look for the headlight fuse "in the fuse book of course", pull it out. The headlights will stay up. You can still turn off the lights from the inside, but the headlights won't go down until you put fuse back in.

Thumbs up I think I figured it out.

Hello
I did a little surfing the other night and found a couple of different sleepy eye modifications. One of the mods I found allows you to use a momentary switch that you can use to raise your highlights to any height you desire and keep your headlights turned off.

The mod also allows you to operate your headlights normally when you want and you don't have to do any physical damage to your car to install it! So if it doesn't work or you decide you don't like it or dont want it anymore, you can simply remove it and replace the retra fuse.

To learn more about this mod, please visit http://fordprobemods.co.uk/ and click on the Sleepy Eye Mod.

Thanks!
