Factory harness works as it should. Plugging the original h13 bulbs in works. With the h13 when high is on low is off. This is to darken the area immediately in fron of the car forcing your eyes to focus farther up the road where the highs are aiming.

Ive tested and i have 12volts where i should and good grounds with no resistance (not open or ol).

There was a wierd thing on the harness about half the size of a resistor or a diode but un labeled and only had one lead. I believe it was on the ground circuit. It must have feed back to the low side power circuit but rusted away.

Most likely i will end up having to replace the harness and relays as i doubt there is any warranty on them
