Wow – it’s been 13 months since I last looked at this!!! Well the old girl has done a LOT since then, that’s for sure.
I think I’ll let the pics do the talking:
Anyway, the reason I jumped on to update this page is because I finally got some work done to the old girl. Not much and it was really only done because I had too. You see I’ve had this kit sitting in the shed now for quite a long time (read over 12 months).
Driving to work the other morning I lost all headlights. Yeah, yeah – it’s a Landrover and I should’ve known better. Anyway I thought I better fix it before work in the morning.
For those that aren’t aware, Landrover in their infinite wisdom wired up a headlight circuit so all the amps go through the switch itself. Now the original switch went on me back in 04 when I rigged up a couple of spotlight switches to get me home. 9 years later one of those switches failed (lol). Got me home alright!
The kit I used was from Drivesafe, a forum member on AULRO (www.traxide.com.au). Great bit of kit which fixes the original problem by actually using a relay (funny that!). The kit was easy to fit, although I needed to lenthen a few of the wires – a very easy thing to do.
I fitted the relay in the battery compartment, as I’m not to keen to have anything electrical in the engine bay – knowing what I do to the poor bugger!
Hard to show what an improvement this has made, but damn it’s good. I’m still running Narva all-weather 55/60W globes, so they aren’t anything fancy. All I can say is I should’ve done this upgrade years ago!!!
