It's not that clear what this is - it would help to show the headlights & the car / truck?

this DIY will make your dimmed car headlights even more brighter.
it will help your car handle the heating of wires caused by a high-wattage bulb and an all-weather bulb..

you can apply this DIY to any car or truck..

And you can add some additional headlamp or fog lamps if you want, it's just that i forgot to add an on/off switch function on the diagram. it's up to you if you will make one for yourself.

you can ask me again if you have some question.


Can you point me in the right direction for adding a on/off switch?

about the switch..from your additional lights like fog light or led lights,LED DRL
connect the switch to the ground wire of your lights(not in the relays ground).
then the other end of the wire goes to body or chasis..if your asking why i use the ground not the positive(+) wire is for safety and fire preventive measure..and if your putting a relay be sure you put a fuse and closest to the battery and put a lower amp fuse never put a higher than 10amps
Yeah I see it better now (thanks to both of you and not being so tired today...) - can you show us your wheels?
