Wiring PIAA lights
I'm installing some PIAA 520 lights on my bumper this weekend. PIAA's wire harness comes pre-made with the relay wired into it and a switch incorporated into the harness. I don't want to use the switch (or any switch) as I'll be triggering the lights off the high beam wire via the relay. A copy of PIAA's wiring diagram is attached. I'd like to get rid of the switch you see in the diagram so I don't have that mess stuff into the engine compartment (I recognize I could leave it attached and in the on position in the engine compartment but prefer not to do that). So, my question: how do I get rid of the switch completely...meanign what wires do I tie together?
If I'm reading the diagram right, I think I just cut that plug off (#3 on diagram) and solder all three of those wires together?
