    I have actually come across a vey obscure relay that is wired something like that. But that is not the norm. I'm not sure why they were made like that. I thought at the time that I'd just bought a dodgey relay. If yours works ok like that then fine, but most common relays are as 2Dogs' diagram.

    2dogs diagram is way you need to wire up your lights with your relay.

    2Dogs is correct. You could switch pin 30 and 87 for this application and it will still work. You'll only have a problem switching those pins if you need to use the normally closed contact 87A.

    might have a problem with what is shown in the diagram though.....with 2 grounds coming off of the switch your power is going to take the path of least resistance. depending on which has a higher volt is going to determine which one will not work.

    I would just wire the light in series with the relay, but you will have a problem if the light burns out then your relay wouldn't get power.
