Hello everyone,

I have had my driving lights installed for a few months now. I pieced together a kit from a few forum members, bought the interior trim plate and switch from brg as well as picked up the factory oem relay. The problem I am having now, is the lights don't stay on? I have the brights on and the togel engages and then turns off once I let let go. The lights will stay on only when I am pushing the button.

I asked about this earlier and someone said I probably have the non latching type of relay. So I ordered the factory one (from brg part number c079m6141f) just to make sure I have the right part. Still the same problem. Can anyone help?

Thanks,

Zach

Not sure but will research. I believe it is just a standard 30 amp relay. I think your problem is in the switch circuit board

Dude... I told you that you had a momentary switch, not relay. You need a latching switch. It has nothing to do with the relay.

I just bought all the parts individually... I didn't want to get the kit that comes with the Elise grill and all that stuff. So, I just bought the lights and switches/ switch plate.

Did you buy a momentary or latching switch? ;)
(P.S. - it should be a latching (push on/push off) switch, not a momentary switch... it appears you have the latter...)

Just installed Light Kit

Until I am informed that he actually has a latching switch instead of a momentary switch I will believe that the circuit board is just fine.

:wallbang:
I just installed a factory kit. And..
Yep, guaranteed this man has a momentary switch. You are correct. A push-on / push-off is what he needs.
