Key off, Headlights Off Mod Complete

Recommended Posts

I have posted before how I had planned to carry out this mod, and now it's complete.

The brown, normally open relay was stacked below the fog light relay.  The connectors to the orange/white headlight wire are wrapped in green electrical tape.  The hot side of the relay comes from the 12ga wire supplying the radio, and it's connected with a big, blue 12ga Posi-Tap and a 20ga red Posi-Lock to extend the wire from the relay right in the middle of the photo.  Another advantage to the Posi-Taps is that different gauges of wire are easily connected.  The ground side of the relay simply tapped the headlight harness ground with a 20ga Posi-Tap (not pictured).

 

Now the headlights will automatically go off whenever the key is off, but the parking lights will still stay on.  No more dead battery when it's time to go to work, or leave work.
