    The connector has 3 wires - brown, yellow and blue. No indication on them or in the instructions to tell you which is which. I am wiring them to a switch. :dunno: :1zhelp:

    Is there a relay?

    You should have a relay with 4 outputs.

    1 goin directly to batt

    1 goin to lights

    1 goin to ground

    1 goin to switch

    The switch should have 3 if it has an LED, 2 if not

    1 keyed on/off power

    1 ground

    1 from Relay

    Thanks man. I have the relay's and the switch wired.

    My problem is that the lights themselves have 3 wires - brown, blue and yellow with no indication of which is hot, ground and WTH the third is for. I don't have the Hella installation kit, just the lights.

    Remember the lights were made by cheese eating surrender monkeys.

    Would that be Germany (the companies home country) or Australia (where many of the lighting products are made) or were you on your way to something helpful and got sidetracked in one of your "spells"........

    You're thinking of Marchal. Been a long time since we've seen that brand FS in the states.

    I would think that opening up the light hsg would tell you what each wire does.

    For anyone that finds this later - brown is ground, blue is hot and yellow is not used.

    Dang a little late.
    I was gonna say the same thing.

    The yellow can then be used for something like . . . oh say some extra color lighting in the H4000 housing.
    I added blue lights in mine for that nice illegal ricer look
