High beam wire/ spotties


Recommended Posts

I am wiring in my LF 170 spots I am double checking the Highbeam wire that you connect to. Can someone verify is it the wire from the Highbeam light or is there a wire you connect to on the Low beam light loom. I keep reading that it is negative wired and that there is a wire in he LB loom to use.

My lights al work, but just need to sort out why they stay on when you flick the HB lever off. Suspect a wiring problem.

Cheers for any help

Are you using a relay? I connected a relay into the high-beam wire (has 12v positive power when high-beam is on) behind the left-hand headlight

yeah using the relay that came with the wiring harness.

on the LH headlight there is the low beam plug, high beam plug and parkers. I have used the t connector (will replace this) on the wire from the HB plug.

Your relay should be connected to the high-beam headlight wire, and then to the body of the car (ie. not to the positive terminal of the battery). That way it should latch on and off when you put high-beam on and off.

Hope this is helping!

both mine were pre-wired - sorry not sure.

Speaking about lights, anyone purchased one of these?? the cost is less than 1 x genuine headlight unit.


they also have the same for the new shape too!

Any feedback would be good, as I don't want to compromise light output for looks....no matter how good!
