SOURCE: Headlight problem

Yeah,

There was a relay between the headlight selector switch and the dip/high beam stepper relay which was not on the circuit diagram.
Its a bit difficult to access and is right under the dash on the far left above the fuse panel (British right hand drive type).
The multi spade connector (5 terminals) had been intermittent and overheating for some time. I cut off the connector and soldered all connections to the relay.
The 240SE is back to its reliable self.

On the discovery there is a purpose made plug behind the panel on the drivers side rear, behind the rear lamp
i think the relay you have bought is for lamp failure you just need a normal 4 pin 30 amp relay.
Good luck Davelee

SOURCE: 20 amp ignition fuse keeps blowing

I'm curious, does this vehicle have an alarm/remote starter? If so I expect the installer didn't wire it correctly ... it was an all too frequent issue, with inexperienced installers we had .... I would first suspect any add-on device first (if any) ... In answer to your question ... I know it does have a relay (Starter solenoid is a relay and built onto the starter) As far as it being a relay or the IGN switch ... I'm skeptical.

Hi I have a 2002 Mazda 323 Protege and I'm trying to put spotlights on but I can't work out where to get the power from the high beam. Can someone please help. Thanks.


Spotlights or more correctly auxilliary driving lights should be fitted in accordance with prevailing construction and use regulations that mostly require such lights to be fitted above the bumper line and not be placed too close together. They should be aimed as if they are headlights and be wired so they only illuminate when main or high headlamp beam is selected.

The lamps should be supplied with a fused supply direct from the vehicle battery and switched by a good quality relay with a current rating substantially more than the current drawn by the lamps. Use a heavier gauge of cable than required for both the supply and ground. Keep the wires sensibly short and neat so it looks like they are meant to be there.

The switching supply is taken from any convenient point in the supply to either headlamp main beam. These days that small task is not easy and will usually require splicing into the cable once the correct wire has been identified using a circuit diagram and/or a test lamp.
Carefully remove half an inch of insulation from the headlight supply cable and then wrap the conductor of the relay wire around it several times, secure with solder and then carefully and neatly waterproof and insulate the splice with pvc tape and secure it from unwinding over the coming years with a tiny nylon cable tie.

Good luck!

Need headlight wiring diagram for 2013 Kia Rio,want to fit spotlights


you will have to fit a relay into the system. Tap a wire into the high beam power wire for the headlights. (Piggy back connection) take this wire down to the fitted relay to a coil pin on the relay. connect a wire to the other coil pin of the relay and return to the dash area to an control switch through it then to an earth point.. Run a wire to an inline fuse directly from the battery ( fuse close to the battery as it is a high current line) down to one pin of the relay. connect up the power wire for the light to the opposite pin on the relay and connect the earth wire of the light to an earth point

According to road regulations you cannot have spot lights on by them selves and they must only operate in conjunction with high beam operation.. The setup as I describe allows you control of when the spotlights will be on ( switch in the dash) and if on will be extinguished when low beam is selected as per regulations. The relay ensures that the trigger wires do not carry full light amperage so light gauge wires can be used and only the power wire from the battery to the relay to the light need to be heavier gauge.

Spotlight wiring in landcruiser


I would just tie into the high beam wiring at the factory lights, wire them into a relay and go from there. I wouldn't even consider adding into the high beam system without a relay. You may also want to consider a switch so you can shut them off if you found yourself in a position where you want your factory highbeams but not the extra's. Good luck and have fun :)

Car won't start but turns over, engene light flashes real fast and a relay on the passenger side up under the dash keeps clicking cery rapidly.


The flashing check engine light means the computer is turning off and on. The relay may be the fuel pump relay caused by the computer going on and off. That could be all kinds of things. Someone is going to have to start troubleshooting all the power supplies using a wiring diagram.

Can't supply a diagram but I can tell you that 15A fuse 27 in the central junction box (CJB) applies power via a LT BLU/PNK wire to terminal 2 (the coil) of the indicator flasher relay in auxiliary relay box 1. 20A fuse 18 in the CJB applies power via a LTGRN/RED wire to the brake pedal position switch and terminal 3 (the relay arm). Terminal 5 of the relay connects the relay coil to ground (BLK wire). Terminal 1 of the relay supplies power via the LT BLU wire to the turn signals when the relay is closed. Terminal 4 supplies power via the WHT/RED wire to the hazard light circuit when the relay is open.

Fitted a set of anti-roo spotlights on my wife's car. However, trying to get a signal to the relay via an on/off switch in the dash from the high beam, the wires all seemed to be hot at some stage


Yes First, you may be able to get a FREE diagram from Autozone.com by registering your car. Foreign cars a little less likely.

When you look at a Relay there are several terminals. While conventional thought is that a Relay just interrupts a wire and breaks connection, the Reality is that both Positive and Negative wires tie in several Relays.

For instance, a Positive terminal in a Relay engages and it moves a pair of connections inside the Relay. But another Relay is lacking a Negative Pulse to engage its connection. The first Relay activates and then makes a connection supplying a Negative or grounding charge.

So the way you are wired, you are providing a ground to a KeyOFF terminal. Now it completes the circuit to light. When the KeyON Relay is activated, it toggles the Circuit and breaks the connection.

What you want to do is add an external light relay. Think of it like a starter Relay. A small tickler wire connects those massive battery cables to the starter. But only when the ignition is turned to start.

Use the tickler wire to activate the external Relay. Tie the tickler to the high beams so when the highs are on, the added Roo lights will work too.

Remember to fuse the hot side to the relay from the battery. That way you can lose the added lights but not the factory lights in the event a fuse breaks.

I hope my solution helps you.

Headlights go on and off during a trip


Go to Autozone.com and register your vehicle for FREE and then you can get Fusebox diagrams and even chassis wiring layouts. I suspect you have a bad Headlamp Relay. Just look at the Fusebox layout and replace that relay to start with.

Find highbeam hotwire for connection to relay for spotlights


You would be better off to run wires to the battery , put in a fuse, and put in a switch for these. Depending on the year. Switches, relays,wiring, and fuses in the newer years can not carry this extra type of load. They will eventually burn out.

I need diagrams for the fuse boxes in the dash and engine compartment so I can find the fuse/relay I need to replace. My dash lights, tail lights and windsheild wipers are out.


Hi
There are a couple of wiring diagram and manual available on the net. The relay you are talking about is the park lamp relay which supplies power to the tail lamps, license plate lights and both front and rear park lamps. If the park and plate lights are working the light switch, relay and supply power are good. You need to verify for a broken brown wire to the tail lamps (assuming the sockets, lamps and grounds on both tail lights are good) .If none of the lamps are working then the 15A fuse number 3, the light switch or the park lamp relay could be bad (note different contact in the main light switch work the other lights)

You can find a wiring diagram and component location at
www.autozone.com and http://www.pdfgeni.com/book/1998-ford-ranger-wiring-diagram-pdf.html


Let us know if you want something more else accept the solution.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com
