    Any one care to draw me a wiring diagram how to properly hook up driving lights, using a switch?

    Also using high beam to turn on light.

    Thanks.

    Same as this except you are going to trigger off the high beam instead of low as shown.

    Is there an online circuit designer that lets you drop in components and draw lines between them to mock up circuits? I've had an idea kicking around in my head for awhile, but every time I sit down to sketch it out I quickly run out of colors and the connections get a bit confusing. I'd also like to put a virtual 12VDC to the mocked-up circuit to verify operation.

    You might also want to consider:

    Relay terminal 86 - high beam
    85 - grounded via switch
    30 - power in
    87 - power to aux lights
