Lights Q

I sent this direct to Alan Cordiero but his server refused it - so 
I'm resending this way.....

About my "won't flick to brights" headlights - (but yes, they do work 
on high beam when the stalk is puched forward...)

Thanks, Alan.  So you're voting for the "add a relay and perhaps even 
an extra wiring harness, relay-actuated" school of  lighting, I take it.

If you've been there, done that, where in the circuit did you add the 
relay?  Thanks....
