The high beam trigger operates a shutter on mine. There doesn't seem to be any that go from 0-12v on the headlight I have (unless I'm doing something wrong). I'm pretty sure we are talking about the same wire though. Of the 16 wires some are 10v some 2v some 5-6v some 12 and some none. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Wiring driving lights

Just wondering how well it lights up the night with the bar under the car (or close to it) also, where did you go through the firewall and mount the light switch.

Thanks.

Hi the light goes well for a small LED. We live rural and wanted a wider and whiter light for Kangaroos. It gives a little extra distance, much wider and heaps brighter. It is recessed into the lower grill and seems to fit ok. I had to make an additional bracket. I will try to put some photos up in order Low, High then High/Spot. I can't remember but I think I went through an existing rubber boot above the accelerator. I will also attach a photo of the switch when he wife gets off the computer. The panel that is on the side of the dash that is visible when the drivers door is open just pulls off and the cars light switch just pushes out, I also removed the drivers kick plate. Not much room but ok. Switch was from eBay $7. You can see I was worried about the relay burning out in other posts but it seems ok so far.

Hahah, join the club. That looks great and puts out a ton of light.

Is that a rigid industries light bar? It didn't come with a switch, or you just wanted a different one? And lastly, did you drill a hole to get the switch to mount there?

LED lights it is...

Re: Wiring driving lights

It's a Great White LED bar. Didn't come with a switch and I had to drill a hole to mount it. You need to have a good look behind where your going to put it before you drill ( obviously). Lastly the were spare spots in my relay and fuse boxes which I used for the light - bit of mucking around but worked out really well.

Hi All,

Can anyone help with wiring driving lights on 2013 JGC I think it must be different to the 2014 in that there is just a small silver plug onto the back of the headlight fitting. I can't seem to get it off. Would appreciate any assistance. Got the light bar mounted but that's it at the moment.

Thanks,

Pete
