Making all 3 lights come on???

Might be a stupid question...but I can't figure out how to get the DRLs, fogs, and headlights to come on at the same time.

Simple answer as designed they don't all work at the same time. With some aftermarket wiring you can do this.

you can do it with 2 diodes, by wiring up the fogs to to the DRL's, the diodes are used to keep from powering the fogs in the day time.

Or buy the wiring harness from gen5diy.com. I had it on my SS and ZL1 currently.

Uhmm, OP's profile says SS, but this is a ZL1 section. Which one are you inquiring about?

I believe by law, you are only allowed six forward facing lights on at one time ... Your headlights are considered four, with the hids and halos on.

I believe it's a Federal DOT law, and personally I don't give any extra reasons to pull me over. They are fine for shows and such, but modder beware...

ZL1 Halos

Has anyone installed aftermarket halos in the headlights, DRLs and fog lights? Can't seem to find a car with all 3 done

I bought the harness and it works great, PIA to get the inner wells outta the way , there are bolts on the bottom of the front of the splitter including the three in the wheel well. Good luck

Not true,It always depends on the state ! there are some fed laws as far as the new cars etc...but the state laws are normally want counts,as far as texas you can have pretty much as many lights as you want,as long as there is no forward facing red lights,period including HALO's,which sucks as I wanted red,and just found that out,lol

Vehicles that are equipped from the manufacturer with approved lenses which are clear and lighted by red L.E.D. lights will pass state inspection.
Vehicles that are equipped with aftermarket lenses which are clear and lighted by a red bulb will be rejected. (Currently, there are NO DOT approved "Red" bulbs.
As far as High bean lights,they can be as bright as you want, any color temerature as you want, and as blinding as you want ON HIGH BEAM. There are no TEXAS LAWS preventing use Of HID if adjusted correctly and only federal laws preventing sale for street use. The only statute that covers aiming states your low beams must illuminate at 150 feet minimum and not project the high intensity portion of the beam into oncoming driver's eyes. This only applies to the low beams.
