I ordered E500 European (E-Code) lights from Daniel Stern Lighting to replace the worthless 9004 lights in the 420. 500's have a driving light "in board" instead fog lights. How do you "fool" the rotary light switch "pull-out" to cause the new driving lights to go on with the highbeams? Recall that the "fogs" switch off with high beams.

If I were you, I'd change the order to the non-500E ones. They have TOTALLY different wiring. Unless you are a pro, this will cause you WAY more trouble than it is worth.
