    OK, so I have a 2017 freightliner I was wanting to know how can I stop the utility lights from going off once I hit a certain speed is there some type of bypass for that? Because I want to wire some additional lights into that for nighttime when I’m backing into a dark area or taking a turn and some dark ### area and I want to turn them on so I can see the sides of my truck, but if I’m going to certain speed limit they won’t turn on.

    Try this. Leave switch on. When they turn off at speed, cycle the switch.

    Turn the lights on. Once they turn off at speed, turn the switch off then on. I wad able to turn them on/off till I would set my brakes.
