Default This is odd, or is it?

A few years back I did the sport light conversion. I put the lights on relays and wired the two bulbs in parallel, both low beams on or both high beams on.
Fast forward to last summer. I installed a set of factory fog light along with the factory switch. The wiring was already there. Everything seemed to work normally.
This past week I noticed something weird about the lights, I thought there was something wrong.
What is happening is:
Turn on head lights,
Turn on fog lights,
Turn on bright lights, fog lights turn off. (normal so far)
This is where it gets weird.
Turn off bright lights,
Bright lights stay on,
Low beams come on,
Fog lights come on.
So, everything is on at this point !
Turn off the fog lights and it returns to normal.
It does it every time. Not really complaining, it's nice to have the extra light. Just didn't like blinding oncoming people until I figured it out. And it gets awfully dark with just the low beams.

Is it an american truck or a canadian truck? Canadian trucks have a daytime running light module that might be causing some headaches.

Canadian Trucks would have kilometers as the prominent numbers on the speedometer and the other guages would have metric readings..eh.

Nope no Brite Box. It's doing it all on its own. I've been looking at the wiring diagram and I just don't see how it's doing this.

Stray voltage from the fog light circuit to the high beams.....are the high beams run by a relay?

All the head lights are on relays, a total of 4 of them. The headlights are isolated electrically by the relays. Not likely a sticky relay because they all do it. Must be in the switch because the fog lights are supposed to turn off when the high beams come on, which they do. It just the high beams won't turn off when switching back.
