Another Headlight Relay Mod Thread

Alright, here is the dilemma: I have wired up my relays and spliced into the factory high and low beam wires. The high beams light up, but the low beams do not. I replaced the dimmer switch and it still does the same thing. Also, if I take the "trigger" wire and connect it directly to the battery the low beams work. Could the actual headlight switch be bad?

Did you have Low Beams before you put in the relays?

If the headlight switch was bad the highs wouldn't work.

Should be pretty easy to track the problem if you have a volt meter or even a test light. Are the fuses/circuit breakers/fusible links (whichever you are using) all okay? Sounds like you are getting battery power to the relay, but not getting power from the factory wiring coming from the dimmer switch. Gotta be a bad dimmer switch or wiring between the switch and the relay (check your splice and that the plugs are all seated completely).
