    Ahhh, I see that at least someone has read my article. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif Nice score! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    If you unwrap the wiring harness, it's pretty easy to trace which wires go where. Each relay will have a couple of fat wires and a couple of skinny wires attached to it. The fat ones are for powering the switched circuit and the skinny ones just power the coil that switches the relay. Those look like they're all 30-amp relays, so each relay will easily power a pair of 150 watt KC Daylighters. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    Cool, I see I'm not the only one to jump on those things.

    I've pulled a couple of smaller ones, but next time I'm in the yard I'm gonna look for a larger unit like that.
    I know the newer park aves and such have nice big clusters like that under the hood too.

    Way to keep you GM all GM! /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Too bad I have a mac at home and can't look at Visio files.

    I'm not to bad with it, we use it a ton at school for all the network design projects we work on. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    DOH!

    Maybe I should looked a bit harder at the link.

    Looks good.

    But. . . .
    I would run 3 lights on the top bar on one and the other two off another so as to only use 4 relays, but that's just me.
    I kinda like the idea of three lights on one switch rather then the way you set it up.

    That is a nice looking setup. I make my own relay boards from time to time with circuit breakers and so on but they always take up more space than that.
