I'm kinda at a standstill right now. I'm wondering if two wires could be shorted together somewhere between the connecter on the steering column and th JBox. I just can't understand, when the ignition is on and the HL switch is on, why does #3& 4 leg show 8 volts. That's the reason the relay isn't kicking in.

Sorry I didn't see your last post before this one .. for some reason I wasn't notified you had replied ?

OK lets try this !! jumper JUST #13 on the switch to #3 on the relay .. this will take out of the equation the itergration relay ???????????

Wait a minute ... did you say you had a YELLOW/RED wire coming from #12 and #13 coming off the switch ?? let me know

I can't believe I didn't check this sooner. Your vehicle IS fitted with DRL (daytime running light's)? The LO headlight's are supposed to be on constantly?

Dave: The #12 wire on the switch side of the connecter is red/yellow. #13 wire on the switch side of the connecter is red. The #14 wire on the switch side of the connecter is red/white. As far as having DRL, I don't think this car has them because we've always been able to turn the lights off when the car is running. Also from looking at my Haynes manual it indicates that only the canadian models had the DRL" s. Did you want me to jump #3 to#13?

Well, we're going to have to back up here a few yards, and punt. Dave and I had a little chat off line and he informed me that we probably were looking at the wrong diagram for your system. I believe he is correct. Of the diagrams I sent you, do the wire colors on the W/DRL diagram match the colors on your system? Please advise.

James: From what I can see the colors don't match up with the DRL schematic and like I said in a previous comment DRL's stay on all the time and mine didn't.

Hey Mike. good morning

OK heres the deal mike, I had a chat with James and we discussed your problem and we looked back over the post's .. and we also re-checked both wiring diagrams, I have even looked the wiring diagram's for the years below 93/94 and above 96/97 and they are all identical ... there are no RED or RED/WHITE wires .. unless you are actually working on the DRL MODULE (see diagrams)and NOT the H/L SWITCH ... Also the DRL module sends the GROUND through a Dimmer Relay ...this would explain the voltage drop you are getting ... Could you possibly supply us with a photo of the switch and connector you keep mentioning .. I do not understand what connector you are talking about ? the #13 wire (red/yellow)should go from switch to intergration relay then change to a red/black wire from relay to relay ..the #14 (red/black) should go directly to #4 on HL relay there should be no connector in between ? let me know your thought's ??

This is a picture of the switch and connecter I marked #'s 12,13,&14.the red/white is the 1st wire#14, the red wire is the 2nd, #13, the 3rd from the right Red/yellow is #12. There are eleven wires in the HL bundle.

Maybe this might be a little clearer.
