Re: Light Relays ????

     The relay ground is only used for sensing current.  I ran a separate 
     ground from the engine grounding point, and all relays share it.  I 
     let the lights use the original grounds, and it seems to work fine.

I am also putting in some Relays I have had lying around for a month in my 
car this weekend.  I am wiring the relay power straight to the Alternator. 
And then to the lights.  Third wire is the power wire from the switch in 
the car.  What to do about ground.  Do I ground the Relay to the Switch in 
the car using existing wiring harness and ground lights directly to frame 
individually.  This seems the best route for me.
        Thanks again.    Boy, I am quiet for a month and then I post
messages in big groups.  Sorry everyone.  L8R
