    Hi I just bought a set of Canadian sir headlights for my 96 hx and I'm curious how they work? Do they use a switch or what. I have searched and people say to wire them to the parking lights but are they supposed to stay on even when your headlights are on

    Yes they stay on with headlights. You could wire it to a switch but I think you need a relay at that point. Most people tap into their turn signal power wire.

    But then they would blink and not stay solid right?

    ...... I know that. I'm going to look around online on how to make a circuit that shuts off when you turn on the headlights. Kinda like some Oem foglights how they shut off when you on the brights
