Default Driving light wiring

I want to trigger my new driving lights by switching on the high beams. What I found on the head light plug is power on all 3 pins????? Even with the head lights off, so connecting there for the switching power source would result in the driving lights being on all the time. Does anyone know how I can hook these driving lights up so that they can be switched on and off with the high and low beam. Big thanks

Wired like below will activate the aux lights on high beam only. Suzuki lights have a permanent live and switch the earth/ground. With the bulb in and lights off all three wires are 12v positive because it's reading through the bulb filaments.

The fuse is rated for the 55w bulbs, this is an old diagram I did and your bulbs may well be different.

Thank you sir, this did work but a bit strangely, When you switch from high to low beam there is about a second delay before the relay drops out. not really a problem but i thought it was strange.

Strange indeed, can't think why that is

I wonder if it is the relay, its one I picked up at an auto parts store. However when this happens the high beam wire retains some voltage than bleeds off.

Something else I just found out, the high auxiliary beam lights will only dip when the vehicle is running ?
