Hi all ,

I have just installed some led lights into the front bumper , I have wired them into the sidelights as I don't want them on all the time like day running lights.

What I am looking to do is have these led lights switched off when I put the headlights on but can't for the life of me work out how to wire the relay up to do this as the side lights remain on with the headlights .

Would really appreciate any advice on pin configuration on how to do this.

Kind Reards

Tawny

Connect the LED grounds to the headlight (or beam) +12V supply. (Via diodes to hi & low beams if a "beam" +12V is not available.)

Does anyone know any brands of small attachable LED lights for a small HD video camera. It's an 840HD vivitar. Its not anything big, But it's just for some small footage, but for filming at night - I was wondering if an LED light would do the job, because the camera doesn't seem to have any night lighting available?
