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 :)

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.

Where to hook up power wire for aftermarket driving lights in 93 Nissan Maxima


if you hook the driving lights to the low beam circuit you will be in breach of traffic regulations the regulation reads that driving lights can only be operated with high beams and on selection of low beam , the lights have to go out
added to that is the clause --the driving lights most be extinguishable when on high beam by the use of a separate isolation switch
now the circuit is really simple
you place a relay for each driving light in a suitable place
you run a fused wire from the battery to the relay and then to each light
to make those relays work you connect a wire from the existing high beam relays connections(m piggy back or like connection) so that when on high beam the trigger power that puts the headlights on also triggers the driving light relays
Now to meet regulations you run ground wires for the driving lights back to a switch in the cabin then to ground

I have a 94 Honda Civic EX, and the right low beam headlight does not work. The bulb was bad, and I replace it, but still didn't work. The high beam works, and I can hook the low beam connector to the...


there are fuses for each light, high and lo beam. the grounds are grounded at all times, I dont know what you mean by open seeking. its wired like every other car. Right low beam is fuse 21 Red/White wire should be hot if fuse is good. I dont know what you mean by hooking low beam connector to battery? check fuses.

Roof mounted spotlights


You can run the power wire into the cab to a universal
toggle switch. Then run a wire from the other side of the switch to the + side of your second battery.
Ground the light at the mounting point. Be sure to use a 20amp circuit breaker toggle switch, or splice in an inline fuse holder with a 20amp fuse, on the +
side. Hope this helps. Good luck.
