Okay Mike, You asked for it...... EVERYONE If your going to upgrade your
headlight wiring PLEASE save this post.....
Okay here's the poop.... With this Mod you can keep the Autocheck system
from telling you that a bulb is out and Gain around 1.5 volt's at the
bulb. The headlight won't melt, at least mine is still togther and I've
had this mod on the car for 10 months. The Difference is HUGE.... The
existing headlights are now much more useable.
Get 4 30A relays, 4 Inline Fuse Holders, 2 100/80 watt bulbs, 2 10 amp
fuses, 2 15 amp fuses, some Heavy Gauge wire (I Used some 8ga I had
laying around) 1 2ga ring terminal, a bunch of female spade connectors in
various sizes and 2 9000 series headlight connectors. (Availble at
Wal-Mart, Grandpa's etc. for $4.00 each) Total cost $40 total time 1 hour
Take the four fuse holders connect one end to each of the relays, then
take the four pigtails and then crimp them togther in the 2ga ring
terminal connect this to the Jumper Cable Post near the right headlight.
Use the existing headlight connectors to get your Low-Beam and High-Beam
On signals, Use both connectors... (This is what keeps the auto check
off) This is why we have 4 relays, 2 High-Beam (W/15 amp fuse) and two
Low-Beam (W/10 amp fuse) Use your heavy gauge wire to go from the relay
to the new head-light sockets. Presto chango High wattage lights that
won't burn up connectors, That are bright white like they should be, And
if you sell ther car the change back takes 5 min.
