Using Relays To Wiring Off Road Lights And Accessories


Whenever wiring off road lights, it's important to add a relay to the wiring. Failure to do so would cause excessive heat in the wiring and switch and create a risk of fire. This is caused by the amount of power being drawn by the high output lights or accessories. A relay works by using a switch to run 12 volts to the relay. The relay acts as an electrical switch that activates and draws power straight from a good fused battery connection and sends it to the lights or accessory. The power actually going to the switch never gets routed to the lights. Generally you'll have a larger gauge wire going to the lights than to the switch because the lights pull much greater power.
[/QUOTE]

I used google I just wanted to make sure I understood it correctly. In fact I read the same exact site you quoted from. I was just looking for some aditional info in basic terms. I know nothing about wiring and am trying to learn to do things myself.

Hahaha! Oooooh Snap! So I'm guessing that means you're definitely not ready for a "Round 2" then, eh?

I wish I could give you some of the Trazadones I have a home...

Yeah i'm pretty much set on the 3.5". I just read that the 3.5" kit also includes upper control arms and a high steer kit thats not included in the 2.5".

I'm emailing with Krawl Offroad and setting up a layaway so i'll be able to have everything shipped around when I get back

You going to put it on yourself?

Thinking of getting an off road club together out of the guys I wheel with.

Ah! Got ya'! Haha! That's awesome! I'm glad you're trying to learn for yourself - it's good to know these things. I'm sorry, I sent you a PM as well, because I wanted to make sure you saw the info...

Here's my best attempt... I know I'm GENERALLY right... But I may have some wording wrong. I've also been working for about 10 hours at this point... So I may get a little jumbled. haha!

From my understanding of how electrical stuff works, and in terms of the site/quote - You need the relay to keep the accessory from "over drawing" (I don't know if that's a correct term - but it makes sense) and causing the accessory or light to essentialy fry - which could very easily cause a fire. The relay maintains that the accessory itself doesn't try drawing more voltage or amps than the output, or your battery, can handle giving.

When you accessory/lights burn out - or if they're able to draw enough voltage without the relay regulating it - then you run into the potential problem of what you were saying where you could have the wires burn . Especially if two of these "hot" wires end up touching eachother (they'll melt through their casings right away) or being able to get hot enough to just melt the one wire's casing and have the wire burn through it which it then could ground out by touching something metal or even start causing other problems up in your harness because the casing will continue to melt.

I actually had this problem with some of the wiring in my J-truck. I had an electric choke that had burned up on my carb and the wires coming off of it melted like crazy (pretty much melted into eachother) and then grounded themselves on the rear of the block. It sucked because I have NO CLUE when was happening and the only way I found it was I had accidently left my key "on" and the wires were burning - which I noticed the smoke coming from the back of the engine. when I touched the wires they were HOT! I ended up disconnecting them and electrical taping them so they couldn't ground out anymore and .... Bam! My truck started and ran great again! I even still have the wires like that - I installed a manual choke on my carb shortly after.

I'd rather do it myself. I just don't have a lot of tools. It would be my first lift kit install so I do want to learn how everything works rather than paying a shop to do it. My garage is also pretty small. Just a one car. But I have a decent sized parking area on the side of my appartment that could work too.



I was thinking I could bribe some people to help with pizza and beer lol

Next time you want to do something, you should go get some hockey or football pads or something on first and THEN tell her you wanna do stuff.... I think it'd be hilarious!

Sweet truck (not the RAM)! Is it yours?! What is that - like an '85?

And you can totally do the lift! I bet you could have it done in half a day and a 6-pack!

H3ll, I'd do it FOR him if he came to me! Hahaha! I've got PLENTY of tools, and the ones I don't have I'd bet my life my Dad or his roommate have at the house their renting a few blocks away.

Oh!? I don't think you need the pads then. Haha! Im sure you can hold your own. ...... Maaaaaaybe put on some shoulder pads though.

Yeah it's mine. It's a '79 f150. It's got a nice little 302 but the C6 probably needs a rebuild. It doesn't like to down shift so if I need to get on the gas I have to shift it down manually. Or maybe even not a rebuild. I think they have a kick down linkage on the carb so maybe thats not hooked up right. Not sure.


And a 6 pack?? I would barely be buzzed after a 6 pack

The Ram I sold to a guy that lives in Clinton I think. Gypsy might see it around there if he's in Clinton often lol

Sweet. Yeah I have like one of those 90 piece sets and some standard and metric wrenches and a few others. I'll probably have to get a jack, jack stands, torque wrench...not sure what else is needed.

Well Keymo If you were close by I'd say we could do it for him as I know my dad would also have any tool we needed.

Yea, She's literally the only woman that I've ever met that I would do anything for.

79 is the last year of that body style. And I think the first year of the square headlights. 80+ they went with the square body style.

Kind of a wood grain look. You can sand it down or file it . And it will buff up.

Oh yeah! I remember you telling me about it now! Wow... How could that 've slipped my mind!

If it's an auto - it should have a kickdown switch. I'd check that first before rebuilding or taking too many things apart. I don't know if you're having any other problems with it - but those things can cause some pretty weird/random problems when they go out...

Hahaha! That's the point! You get your Buzz on, finish the job and then you're sober enough to take it for a celebratory test drive and get more beer! That's my process, at least!

SO TRUE!!!
Man... I've got a set like Raider's and a torque wrench sitting behind the J-truck's seats. I've also got a 3 ton jack (a 5 ton at my Dads), a Hi-Lift, 4 tall stands, 4 small stands at my house, two creepers and a small rolling bench, any tool you can think of etc at my Dad's... We'd be GOLDEN at my house! Haha!
