    Note: Low beam is completely unaffected and unaltered.
    This is in the planning stages but I want to use a headlight flasher which alternates between left and right (high beams only) and I would presume that I use a 555 timer with a SPDT Relay. The problem I'm having is that I want to manually switch on my high beams and it cut off the 555 and lights both (high beam) lights steady. I do not know how to go about that. The other is that if I shut off the flasher that the 555 shuts off and the both lights are shut off... unless the manual switch is activated which steady illuminates the high beams. I do know I want each light to flash at 2 Hz

    Sugest you read the Automotive guide. This forum is not keen on projects that affect lights on vehicles.
