Re: Driving lights

Google is wonderful it found quickly
http://www.gadgetjq.com/wiredrivinglights.htm (yes it's a harley but the circuit is the same)
http://www.classictruckshop.com/club...h/drvlites.htm (ditto it's a truck but..)
http://www.offroaders.com/info/tech-...rce/index.html
http://www.exploroz.com/Vehicle/Acce...vingLights.asp

and if you want more on relays see http://www.the12volt.com/info/diagrams.asp\
Note in Australia they must be wired to go off when you dip the headlights so you must use and tap into the high beam feed wire.

Re: Driving lights

G'day,
sorry if i burst a bubble, but to conform to ADR's you need a seperate switch for driving lights.

that switch can be on or off, but to come on, your headlight status must be high beam.


Very hard to describe, but you take a feed from the high beam to your driving light switch, which in turn powers the driving light relay.
If you are not in high beam then there is no power to the driving light circuit

To be legal, your driving lights must only be available when you are in HIGH beam mode,.

The reasoning is simple....
It comes down to headlight adjustment....

Headlight adjustment, is...... from centre, at a distance of 7.5m is a drop of 25mm for every 300mm of hieght, coming centered on high beam (this gives you the side to side adjustment)

Spot/Fog lamps, should be 5mm below centre at 7.5m

I probably confused you..but i hope you can make sense or my ramblings.

Cheers
Jas
