Cool I see the light.

You can unplug the headlight LEDs from behind the front grill doors.

I do like SVWC's idea of having a separate switch for the awning.

My headlights are really good. They did need a bit of adjusting at 1st.

Went out to a very quiet road at dusk and adjusted the low and high beams to light the road OK without blinding on coming traffic.

Very easy to do, but most good garages should be able to do it for you.

That may have worked too. Ended up cutting the wiring and adding a new switch, the steps svwc said were spot on and the job was pretty simple.

About the headlamps mine are almost unusable on low beam. They have dark streaks in every direction shining on the road. Hard to believe no one else has this issue

One of my over the winter projects for the fR3 is to replace the headlights with something more along the lines of the modern bluish headlights that are easy to see and yet not as bright to on coming drivers.

What year is your FR3? Mine is a 2015, maybe that is the difference.

Please let us know what you find. I am always interested to see better without blinding drivers coming head on.

I don't what bulb you all will need but I highly recommend using sylvania silverstars or silver star ultras. They give you a much whiter light and have been thourghly tested unlike the bluish made in Asia bulbs. Have seen many melted harnesses due to those bulbs drawing too much power. I run the silverstars on all of my cars and it is a big difference in the dark.

So it appears the headlight module used is the same as used on the 2013 ChevyS Silverado 1500 trucks.

So you would need "h11" for low beams and "9005" for high beams
