negative switched, but since you will be using a relay it doesnt really matter . You need to find the fuse in the engine bay that powers the high beam (it is swithced by the column switch), I cant remember which one it is now its on this forum somewhere (its fuse #28 on my NS shorty, may be different on NW). That fuse gets swithched with high beam so you need to piggy back on that fuse to switch your relay., then put your dash switch in line with that switchwire or the neg side of the coil. Doesnt really matter.

It is negatively switched at the switch but is positive at the lights. Older cars run the reverse at the lights.



What you need is a mini fuse tap and replace either fuse #27 or #28 (high beam fuses) and use it to trigger the relay.





The switch in the diagram is no longer mandatory.

Jaycar has all the parts needed. Just followed the above diagram. Note that the end of the fuse tap is not a female bullet connector. It is a crimp connector so just feed a stripped wire in and crimp.
