Spotties

Hey guys,

I am in the middle of installing spot lights into my AU.

The problem I'm having is that they will not work with the relay. I have tried 2 relays and no luck. When I bypass the relay for a test, they work fine.
Should the relay click when the switch is turned on and off?

Thanks

It's not illegal unless you get caught!

relay should click when the switch is activated, but you probably wont be able to hear it, but you should feel it.

Maybe you haven't got the circuit hooked in properly to the headlamp circuit, ie its usually a two way switch type setup, switch and headlamps need to be on for them to work

I'm bypassing the headlight circuit and running them on their own circuit.

Could be a poor earth, that was the problem with my Fog lamps, so I now run the positive relay feed from the battery, and the negative from the lights back to the -ve terminal, I had very similar probs ...Lights wouldn't work unless I bypass the relay, fixed up earth from lamps and prob fixed.
