Ha Ha not going to use this …..also wiring... Thanks
Glad to here you have sorted it.
Well done. Relays are simple things, just think of them as 2 switches. You operate the little switch in the relay (86-87) using your original light switch with low power, this switches the big switch in the relay (30-87) to send power to the lights.
All done. I used the live feed to the light switch and 2 relays. All seems to work ok so hopefully my lights won’t cut out now the nights are drawing in
87a can be used for dipped beam and 87 for main beam if powered from the dip switch
87a is a switch from 87 so yes ignore it
Thanks for the replies chaps. Do I just ignore the terminal marked 87a?
Will do a drawing and PM it over to you Russ
Here you go.
85 86 87 87a and 30
