Im still a bit confused...
I'm plainly a complete numpty, but all this electronica really doesn't make sense to my aging brain.
I've read through this post and I have a Hella wiring kit diagram which suggests, as far as I can tell, exactly the same setup that offroader posted. (Man, for fastidious Germans those wiring diagrams suck don't they?)
So I think...
"If that's how it is, disconnect it from ground and connect it to the other terminal on the high beam bulb."
...Which simply means attach that other wire (the 'single black'- which is Blue in my wiring kit...!) to the HB headlight black wire so the 'coil' inside the relay now runs in parallel.
Now this would mean;
a) the only Earth attached is now the one direct from the aux driving lights.
b) I have to tap both the red and black wire in the back of the main HB light.
"Now you have the relay coil in parallel to the high beam light. They both go on at the same time."
If my interpretation is correct I'd greatly appreciate a response.
Now, I have one (actually two) other issue with my driving light switch. It's one of those backlit jobbies with three prong outlet. One to relay, one to ground and one to "Power for Switch 12V" - I assume this means the aforementioned red wire in the back of the high beam headlight?
There are some tiny, tiny illegible symbols on the back of the switch, which one would be the ground?
If I'm modifying the relay setup as above, then do I actually send it to ground from the back of the switch, or somewhere else?
And, if I inadvertantly reverse any wiring will I blow the relay or my headlights or anything else, or it just won't work? (In which case I'll just pop off to the auto elec and get him to do it....)
Apologies for my confusion....I'm sure you guys are weary of going over this time and time again.
