Default Wiring question

Calling all wiring Gurus! I will soon be retro fitting a set of JDM BD Legacy lights with HID projectors. I need a diagram to convert the 9007 to the HID setup. The HIDs must remain on when the high beams come on and I cannot come up with a way of doing this. Any help would be very much appreciated!

Really? Not even a blip? Ok. I tried searching but I guess I need to look elsewhere.
Got it-sort of. This is what I found and what I will be using to referrence when I make my harness. This may be helpful for JDM conversions in general.

Hope this helps!

thats a terrible schematic.... I'm gonna stare at it for a while....


Are the HID's low beams?


Edit:

Once you sort through it, it's not too bad.

Relay is labeled 'high beam', but I don't see anything switching hi-beam. Common power @ 86 and switched ground @ 85.

Hold on.....


am I correct in assuming you want HID lows to run while the highs are energized? If so, I've figured it out.
It works fine but the diagram sux! Theres only 2 wires that don't cross other wires. Damn.

The HIDs are low beam projector only with halogen highs-it should all make sense once I post my install on my aftermarket lighting thread. Yes,it is a horrible schematic but far better than nothing. I can read basic electronic schematics as a result of several credits towards an associates of welding many,many moons ago so I wouldn't be able to do much better but hopefully it will all make sense in the end so stay tuned! I'm working on two projects at once and will update when possible on the aftermarket lighting thread I started. Hey Jay-post some pics of the Toyota!

OK. Sometime tommorow I'll pencil out a decent diagram for you. Don't wait, I'm gonna forget.

Lol! 'Preciate it. Yes,the HIDs need to stay on when the high beams are on and thats the part I was having trouble with.

Ok so I cleaned up the diagram for myself and I'll soon be melting solder and splicing wires. I plan on using split loom,18 gauge wire and soldering all connections and splices. I plan on splicing ahead the driver's side headlight connector and leaving it in place so a return to stock wouldn't be out of the question. Lots going on so I will post pics as progress is made. I think the lights themselves are already here! I love the smell of rosin core in the morning! Lol!
BTW: This wiring setup would also work great if someone wanted to use their USDM halogen housings for a single xenon projector retro fit using external driving lights as the high beams-this might be a bit less expensive than retro fitting the JDMs. Just a thought.
