Sadly no longer A Bambi Owner


« on: January 08, 2017, 12:32:24 PM »

Although its not on a Rascal, i know there a lot of Knowledge out there, so i thought i'd ask anyway !

I am fitting a pair of 55w Spot / Fog / Driving Lamps to the 1.3 carry pick-up and i remember on an old Ford Escort, when fitting spot lamps I added a relay that when triggered by a switch send power to the lamps via a more heaver duty cable.

I plan to tap into the low beam headlamp wire to power the new lamps, via another on/off switch, but on more modern vehicles (2003 as apposed to the 70s for the escort) is a relay still needed ?

The wire's on the lamps are only about 1.2mm

Any thoughts / Advice ?

Hi Colin thanks for your reply
I am thinking of using a wiring kit like this one on amazon:-
XCSOURCE Universal Wiring Fog Light Driving Lamps Wiring Harness Fuse Switch Relay for Automotive SUV MA653
 I was hoping that some one may have found a route through as Im not keen on drilling holes in a "new "
car,
Thanks again
