RE: [DML] Re: Headlight switch savers



I haven't followed all the comments about the headlight switch saver but on
this comment I would say that most US built relays have a duty cycle of
100,000 thousand cycles. I don't think relay's are going to wear out as
people think they would.

With all the talk of relays wearing out instead of the switch itself due to
the amount of current draw, I am surprised none of the vendors sell a dual
relay kit.

The left side and the right side of the car are electrically isolated by
fuse #2 and #8.  It would be incredibly easy to install 2 relays in line
with those fuses such that a separate relay controls each side of the car.
This would also relocate the relays to the "relay compartment" instead of
hidden behind the center console.
