Lighting question HIDs and high beams
So, my GC is going to be at the dealer for a while as they are fixing the heated seats. They have some parts backordered and the truck is apart, so they are holding her.
I've been reading all I can in the meanwhile, especially about the lighting.
She is a 2011 Limited 3.6 with factory HIDs, and they seem to move when I turn them on (though I will check more thoroughly when I get her back).
My question is, since I don't have DRLs (sure of that), and the HIDs use a shutter for high beam, what is the light between the HID and turn signal doing?
If I had the truck I would walk out there and turn on everything and see if they come on, but she isn't here.
If that light isn't being used (if I understand what I'm reading on other threads) is there anything that would keep me from installing a relay, separate H11 socket, and another switch to allow me to turn on another H11 in that position for off roading?
I would unplug and seal the existing socket, so she could be returned to stock if needed. Would it pop up bad bulb warnings on the Canbus?
Like I said if she was here I'd walk out there and test, just not sure when the dealer will let me have her back. Figured you guys might know.
When it meets spec in the simplest most reliable way, STOP MESSING WITH IT!
