Relay?

I've got some 7" HID lights (4) to mount on the front of my truck. They have external ballasts, do I use a relay for each or can I combine 2 to a relay? What would be the best way to wire them? Thanks

Re: Relay?

you can combine light to one relay if the amps of the lights don't exceed the relay or wiring rating

Re: Relay?

He could wire them one each to the 87 and 87A terminal correct?

You see, in this world there's two kinds of people my friend....those with loaded guns, and those who dig.

Re: Relay?

Thanks for the replies. I've got two relay wire harness's so I'm going to wire a pair of lights to each relay on two separate switches so I can use two or all four lights at once.
