I have a bull bar and driving lights up front. I recently installed an expedition rack and would like to add four lights to it. Can I run them off the switch that is already on the dash and controls the two driving lights up front?
If so does anyone have the wiring diagram for the add on LR lights and the switch?
Do you want then seperately switchable, or just to come on with the lights already on the bullbar ?
If the latter, then I would feed the roof lights with a supply direct from a +ve power source ( like the one on the bulkhead ) through its own fused relay. The control signal for the relay I would take from the wire that supplies one of the front bullbar lights. Done that way, then when the bullbar lights switch on, then they'll feed the new relay to switch on, and the roof lights will come on also.
That way your placing no additional load on the cabin switch / circuit and all the load is taken through you're own circuit ( which is easily removed should you come to sell the car )
Yes I would like them to come on when the lights on the bull bar come on. I first have to locate the current light's relay. Then a power supply. This is why I was hoping to see a wiring diagram or if someone has access to the instructions for the original lights that might be nice.
It has tabs for two lights. I got those installed tonight. I figured out the wiring. I added a relay and spliced the switch lead.
I have two left to install. I need to find two black plastic blocks that are about 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch thick to use as risers for the lights. There is a flat panel on the front of the rack that I intend to drill through.
I ordered the MTRs today also. I'll try to get picture up soon.
