Okay, I have a serious need for help, because i have *No Idea what im doing.

Here is what im working with. The lights are connected and grounded and I have all the wires hooked up to the relay. Red=power. Blue=ground. Blue covered wire (black)= to both lights. Yellow=to switch

Now, this is my predicament. The switch that i am using isnt the factory one, its a rocker switch. here is a pic of both....


Here is a diagram of the new switch.

Remember it is a Four Prong switch not six (even though the diagram shows six)

**This is my question: Where does the Yellow wire connect to (from the relay) and what other wires do i run (I assume that i only run three since the original switch had only three connections. And i would like for these lights to run totally independent of my driving lights.

Sorry for the long post but i need help!! Thanks in advance.

Thanks for talking to me MC. I'll let you know how it works (if it works)!!
Okay all works great!!

I used '1' to the relay, '2' as a ground, and '5' straight to power.
These are going on my shrock front bumper. I didnt tap into the parking lights or headlights because they will never have a cover on them, and if i accidentally leave them on i will hopefully notice (shame on me if i dont).

But I have another pair im going to mount on the roof later on (hopefully along with some air horns) and these will be tapped into the parking lights.

When i do that i will post it up.
