Headlight problem

I have a buddy that recently put hid fogs and headlights on his truck. Well actually he paid to have it done, but every time he turns the headlights on the brights come on as well, and when he goes to flick the brights on, everything goes dark, including the fogs if he has them on.

I have looked at the wiring and from what I can tell it was pretty much a plug and play system an exception to the ground. I honestly have no clue though. The headlights have a capacitor I believe wired in somehow.

Any thoughts?

Yeah. He got ripped off.

I have all mine on seperate circuits and relays. Did my own wiring too, that way if one system srews up, theres no chasing wiring all over God's creation. You know what wiring harness it is.

That is a good idea, except for those that are better off getting someone to do it for them. Example I will not work on a Honda. The wife had a Accord that the thermostat stuck open on and the heater would not work on for that reason. I pulled and changed the Tstat and the check engine light came on and would not go away. Well I took the car in and the mechanic told me it was a good job but I just needed to ..... at that point I knew for 50 bucks he can change the next one.

Back to the problem. Take it back to who ever did it and explain the problem they are responsible for their actions. BE NICE we all make mistakes and the problem could be something you have done in the past or a previous owner has done.
