Some wiring questions..
A few questions about wiring external lights:
(I've tried to search/google these questions but my wording is too long and I can't seem to find exactly the answers I'm looking for...!)
#1 driving lights- I've got them installed, wired and working:
I have the "trigger wire"(the one that goes to the switch- that activates the relay) wired to the "acc plug"(in dash) so the lights can only be switched "on" when the jeep is on/running. This is good.
-Now can I run a second "trigger wire" to the "high beam wire" so the lights will come on when I'm using the high beams OR with the switch I just installed?
#2- if I wanted to be able to turn the driving lights on when the key is NOT in the ignition:
I just run the "trigger wire" to a constant power source- which means the little light on the switch is always "on"- will this little light, that is always on drain the battery?
#3 wiring a reversing light:
The "cheap basic flood light" I bought didn't come with a relay, what should I be looking for when buying a relay? How many amps-20/30, 30/40, 40?
#4 reversing light
I plan on wiring the "trigger wire" to the existing "stock reversing light wire" and I want to have it on a switch(so I can use it when the key is NOT in the ignition).
Do I just run a "trigger wire" to the "stock reversing lights" wire and second wire to a switch and to the constant wire(once again question #2 comes into play-)?
Thanks for your help..
