RE: Headlight relays

I'll have to look that one up in the archives.

I have identical relays and wiring setups from the post to Euro
headlights on both sides and I'm still getting that damn bulb out
warning. The only thing I can think of checking would be that there's
somehow less draw due to resistance in the wiring (am I grasping for
straws here?) from the driver's side...
