    Headlamp relay wiring

    Iím no auto electrician and wiring is one of those jobs I dread doing, so Iím after a numpty proof drawing or instructions please.
    Basically I need to put relays on my headlamps to stop the switch cutting out. I have some 5 pin relays so if you can bare that in mind it would be good.
    Also here is a pic of the wiring destructions for those of you who read trickery



    Please make this as simple as possible
    Russ

    To start with what are the spade terminal numbers do you have on your relays.

    Thanks for the replies chaps. Do I just ignore the terminal marked 87a?

    87a can be used for dipped beam and 87 for main beam if powered from the dip switch
    If it's got tits or tyres, its gonna be trouble

    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

    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.
