5 terminal relay vs 4 terminal ???
I know by now you all are getting tired of my questions but I don't know the answers, obviously, and was hoping you would tolerate this electrically challenged persons questions once more.
I've read and done a search on relay's to brighten the headlights. Thought I had it figured out Alt/Bat power to term# 30, Switched power to term# 86, line out to headlights term# 87 and term# 85 to ground. Pull out the relays I purchased a while back(couple of years at least) and they have 5 terminals the above mentioned and the additional term# 87a.
Color code are as follows;
Term# 85 white(ground)
Term# 86 red(line from light switch, lt grn brights, tan lows)
Term# 87 green(line out to headlights lt grn brights, tan lows)
Term# 87a blue ???
Term# 30 black[power in from either alt or bat(jct block)]
The relays are Beuler 12V 40/50A BU-5083-0000
TIA Pete and Nicholas
