It's easier than that on a Cobalt You just need to insert one diode between both relays.

You just need to put a diode negative on A2 and positive on C2 of connector C2.

I have mine set up like this from the previous owner. I like it, but if you have stock head light or headlights that use one bulb for blow lows and highs you blow the fuses all the time.

I want retros eventually, but I don't know where exactly the guy added in the diode for me to undo it. Kinda screwed until I figure that out.

I apologize for not knowing to much about this but where I live it's really dark and I really need this done.. Is it possible you can take a picture of your diode setup?

I've never done it myself just coached a few people that did it as I said and it worked.

Thanks I read through the entire thread and I believe I have a good idea on how to do it now! If when I finally get around to it and need help I'll ask again.
