I had a working mock up but the DRL issue has me stumped.
DRL and high beam use the same feed from the firewall connector.
DRL feed volage is aprox 9volt.
If I use the high/DRL feed for the trigger circuit, 12 volts will power DRL+ low beam which would be overkill.
May have to run a new wire through the firewall bulkhead connection to lights.
Could then install a diode downstream of relay(s) in trigger circuit
: Daniel stern lighting has some pre made diagrams that are easy to follow. tech and then relays.
: relays rarely fail, but with one relay and they fail you are in the dark. with two, at least half of the lights work and you can at least get somewhere to get them fixed.
