Fog light wiring harness with relay - March 31, 2013, 07:05 PM

I drew up wiring sketch for some fog lights I'm planning to install - am i doing it right?
I used this as a guide: Wiring a Relay for Accessories

Also what's your favorite relay switching source? I indicated the ignition wire in the sketch, but now I'm thinking of connecting to my license plate light wire which is already hacked from a fender eliminator job. Opinions?

I'm planning to install some fog lights I've had sitting around forever (ADV Monster in case you're wondering). They're 3 mode lights, 24W max. The power level is switched by flipping them on and off within a 2 second window IIRC. I'm thinking of building a harness for them, and eventually maybe adding on an outlet for things like heated gear, cig lighter outlet, coffeemaker, etc. to this. I'll be using 16 ga wire. I have no idea if an FZ8 alternator can handle all that, but that's what I'm thinking.

30 is your power source (from the battery)

87 goes to whatever you are turning on

Gotcha. The back of the package indicates otherwise but now I get it (interchangeable in this case only because there's no 87a pin). Thanks!

Well I am just now realizing these exist. They look way better than my spare parts hackjob plan

edit - nevermind, the fuse panels aren't too expensive, but the fuse panels + relay kits are more than I want to spend. I may still get something out of making my own relay.

The kicker is going to be the module that adjusts the output. Is it built in to said relay (I hope not), the rocker switch, or a standalone unit?

You mean the light output? That's built into the light units themselves. The 3-mode lights were discontinued awhile ago though and no longer appear on the adv monster site.
