July 26, 2006Ok, I just recently installed a new head unit into my 99' GT. Today is the first day I have driven the car since. I drive all the way to work and realize when i get here that my parking lights and fog lights are on.I try to turn them off and they won't. The knob is all the way in and they are still on. My dash lights too.
I think, "maybe if I turn the Head unit off they will go off". They don't. I then turn the headlight knob like I would if I dimmed the dash lights, except my dash lights don't dim, the parking and the fog lights do. As I turn the knob down, the intensity of the parking lights get lighter and lighter, the fog lights get a little dim and then turn off but the parking lights will get totally dim to where there is barely any light in the bulbs.
It's kinda a cool thing to be able to control the parking light dimness but weird that it's doing that.
I think I have wired the head unit dimmer to a incorrect wire and some how backfed the relay to turn on the parking lights.
Has anyone ever done this?
Will this hurt the car?
I wired the harness exactly as is shows on the wires. All the colors and descriptions matched up. It's really strange.
