RE: [DML] Headlight Switch



The relay may be cheaper but the installation is a pain. I was on the phone with John a couple of times because the instructions vary depending on the build of the car. Mine was, of course, the other build. The LEDs will reduce the current through the switch thereby reducing the potential for heat. Barring a short in the wiring somewhere else they should reduce the potential for switch problems.

Considering you are protecting a switch that is near
impossible to replace now, spending a few $$ on the
relay is no big deal.

>From what I understand, the DMCH replacement switch
will be electronically controlled. Even though I
decided for a number of reasons not to "invest" in the
venture of replacement switches, I am disappointed
that there will not be true reproductions of the
switch. Unless there is a true reproduction made,
these switches will only become more rare and
expensive, so it is best to protect them.

The one thing I need to do is add a fuse to the light.
I keep hearing that this is not fused, so a short
could melt the switch anyway. Anyone have details on
that? Clearly, it would be easy to add a fuse right
at the switch, but it really should be close to the
battery.
