K guys i just did this and i did it EXACTLY how it shows. BUT i lost control of my low beems and now they are always on.... i was going to play with it more tomorrow. Can anybody know why and save me the trouble?
diodes are all the way they are supposed to be according to the chart. All the wires are hooked to the 85 posts on all the relays. I do have control of the fogs when my parking lights are on, but as soon as the low beams come on I loose control of the fogs
also, it's not necessarily the post on the relay rather the location on the board itself for the wires. The relay can actually get plugged in 2 ways, flip it 180 degrees and it still works, but the wire would be on the wrong post then if it's attached to the relay itself.
Very wost case scenario is something cracked underneath the board. I have heard of this happening when someone tries to shove too much wire under the prong. Easy to check, just remove all mods and check light functions.
Can you get a pic of how yours looks? How are you connecting the wires?
Yeah i can get you a pic. I soldered all the connections so it was clean and I wasnt jamming too much in the hole (thats what she said) I tried flipping the relay's around and it didnt help. It only made my brights not function at all. I'll try to get you a pic. PM me your email if you dont mind its a little quicker...
Its not a big deal, it actually saves me the trouble of having to remember to turn my fogs on but just bothers me because I cant figure out why
Ok, so I have three diodes (4004) in place. When I hit high beams my fog, drls, high and lows come on. however, when i have my reg. lights on the fogs (fog light button doesn't do anything, just stays lit) and drls are still on. Any suggestions? I don't really mind but I would prefer to be able to at least switch the fogs off or possibly not have the drls on when the low beams are on.
Secondly, should i insulate any of the diodes (heatshrink or tape) or take any other precautions?
Finally, would any harm occur if they diodes touched one another while they were active (e.g. a short, etc.)? There is one point where they cross over but they are basically resting resistor (?) on top of resistor so the metal parts are not touching.
Sounds like your fogs are getting constant power. Basically, you lost control of the switch and have to run them all the time.
Try to remove the one diode for your DRLs first. That'll make things easier. Next, switch around the diode and face it the opposite way with the one going to the fogs. If that doesnt work, there's another way to do this.
