Re: [DML] Headlight Saver Switch Problem


Why is the relay harness plugging into the brake light switch??  I don't 
think I'd want to mess with anything that could take out my brake lights. 
There is a 12V continuous at the headlight switch already (brown/blue wire). 
See my article in volume 3, issue 1 of Gullwing magazine for complete 

Also, there are two different wiring configurations for the brake lights in 
early vs. late DeLoreans, so that could be causing some of the confusion. 
Some of them are wired through the ignition switch and some are not.
