[DML] Re: Headlight switch repairs



Without a wiring diagram of the "switch saver" I can't confirm exactly what it will do. From the name of it you would think it sets up the switch to control relays which carry the loads and there are current limiting devices to protect the switch in case something goes wrong.
The switch can still wear out mechanically just from use.

Front running lights/directionals are still bulbs.  Assuming ALL of these run power through the switch, it sounds like the  load decrease is good, but still highly recommended to replace with a switch saver.  Can you confirm this?
