Headlight Auto Power-off

Recently, a friend of mine drove his ’68 Cadillac to work.  It was foggy through the canyon, so he had the lights on.  By the time he got to work, however, it was sunny and bright.  He forgot he had turned on the headlights, so he naturally forgot to turn them off before going in to work.  Needless to say, he came out for lunch only to find a very dead battery.  That was enough inspiration for this kit.

This kit fits GM cars ‘64-’71 or GM trucks ‘64-’72  (It will probably fit a wider range than that, but so far that is what has been confirmed.)  The kit intercepts the power going into the headlight switch with a relay and then only energizes the relay when the ignition key is powered on.  Turning off the key turns off the headlights, running lights, and dash lights.

One thing I despise is needing to cut a factory harness.  This kit includes the correct terminals for the stock headlight switch - you just have to pop out two wires from the headlight switch connector, move them to the relays , and install two new wires from the relays to the correct vacancies you just created in the switch connector.  If you ever want or need to remove the relay kit, just move the stock wires back to the headlight switch. 

The relays are standard automotive relays rated for 30 amps continuous - more than adequate for any lights you have connected to the stock wiring.  Also, because they are standard relays, should you ever have one go bad (you won't), you can find a replacement at just about any local auto parts store.

This kit works great as a Daytime-Running-Light upgrade for your classic.  If you live in an area where this feature is required, or you just like the safety benefits, this is the kit you want.  Easy to install, easy on the wallet, easy to use, leaves everything looking totally stock.
