VRD Harness *HELP*

    Hey Guys I Need Help With My VRD Fogs.
    I Bought A Set Of VRDs From Someone..... But I Didnt Get A Harness .

    I Made My Own Harness, I Found A Image On Google That Showed Me How (Image Below)
    I Followed Everything But I Need Help With One Thing.

    The Wire Connected To 85 On The Relay Says I Should Use A Switch, And Then Connect It To The Brown Wire In My Parking Lamps. I Do Not Want To Use A Switch, So How Would I Connect The Wire From 85 On The Relay So It Is Connected To My Low Beams? That Way When I Turn On My Low Beams, The Fogs Turn On Automatically, So I Do Not Use A Switch.

    Don't use a relay, splice the fog light positive to the low beam positive and so on with the negatives.

    I recommend T-taps instead of splicing.

    Ok Ill Try That. Do You Know Where I Can Locate The Low Beam Wires?
    The low beam wire right behind the headlights. Or you can go at it in the fuse box. Grab some 9006 extension cords and splice those, then just plug it back in between the low beam harness and bulb. That way you won't have to mess with the factory wiring, just splice/tap the extension cords.
    Definitely use a relay!
    wire the "85" wire to your headlight using a t-tap, just eliminate the switch.

    Why? If anything splice an inline fuse. A relay is complete overkill if your just doing a 1 power to 1 light type thing.

    Heres a DIY i wrote where a 5 pin relay was used.

    He will be drawing a lot more current for the fogs than is designed for the electrical system.
    A relay will carry the current needed for the lights.
    I've electrical work for a VERY long time and I think I know what's up.
    If he wants to trust his electrical system to this, then let him go ahead.
    just sayin'
    I completely agree. Use the relay. I have an complete vrd wire harness. Not sure the value of it but if you want to PM me an offer. I can dig it out for you. It was never used came in my Meng replacements for vrd fogs that cacked so I already had a harness installed. I may have a switch too but I dont recall.

    I Plan On Using The Relay Anyways Since I Already Hooked Everything Up!

    If Nothing Goes Well, I Might PM You.
    Dont use T-taps. I wish they were never invinted. Splice, Solder, E-tape for the best connection. T-taps work,and the easy way out, but also end up breaking copper strands inside the wire
