Wiring Diagrams for a Tracker...or help me!!!

Hey All,

I'm trying to install some devices in the following manner:

My Tracker has full time running lights....

However, I want to tap into their power source (right before the bulb)....

BUT I only want the devices to come on when i turn the headlamp SWITCH to the "ON" position....

SO....which hot wire must i tap into to acheive this?

If nobody knows....where might I find wiring diagrams?

Thanks,

Dan

just get a little test light or volt meter, stick it in the headlight plug and figure it out. You need one any way.

Service Manual I have is a Chilton's...doesn't explain SH!T about what I'm trying to figure out

Anyway


Here's the deal:

I think it works like this...maybe someone can confirm:

There's 3 wires.... 1 is a grnd, 1 is 6v (this just lights it up enough for daytime lights), then when you turn the headlight switch on, the 3rd wire provides another 6v to make the lights full power...

Can anyone confirm that??

Also.....I'm thinking that IF this IS indeed true....I can hook up BOTH 6v lines to the device i'm trying to hook up.... 6v shouldn't be even enough to turn it on. So when I flip the headlight switch and add the extra 6v, it will turn on....or so I presume....ahh...just lemme know if it is indeed 2 6v lines and I'll be happy

it would take longer to figure out what page the correct diagram is on than to just test it!

Ha.....why would they have to see the rig to answer that? The wiring would be the same on any that has daytime running lights....

But anyway

I did test it and I was right.

Still, I really want a set of good diagrams...or a good book all around...what brand to you all recommend??

You proably want to wire it to the switch and not the bulb wiring. I'd be poking around under the steering column if I were you!

Exclamation

All head lamps are three wire(if you have only two, like the Zuki's). The first wire is a ground, the second wire is the low-beam filliment in said bulb, the third wire is the High-beam filliment. That said, the daytime running lamps are controlled by a relay circut that controlls the voltages to the headlight, the best way to get rid of it,(which is ILLEGAL, btw if it will be driven on the road) is to bypass the relay system. Yes you need a factory service manual with full wire diagrams. personally I would bypass the lighting circut and wire directly from the switch to the fuse panel, then to the lamps. but then again, You may not want to go that rout, though it sounds like thats what your trying to do.

What are you trying to add to that circut? chances are that you need to relay off the lamps to said devices your installing. the reason is that the wire harness for the lamps is built to MINIMUM standards and will not stand much more current draw than you get from factory lamps. you need to run a relay to power a seperate circut for your accesories to be safe.
good luck, go buy a factory amnual, you wont regret it.
