HID, Fogs, AE Rewire
 
1 Attachment(s)
I need to preface this by stating that I know this is probably overkill.

However, I got a great deal on a set of headlights with AE's, fog lights (car is not pre-wired for fogs), euro fog light switch, and HID kits for both low beams and fogs. I'd like the AE's coming on with the alarm arm/disarm (using the dome light circuit) and also with the ignition power to use as "DRL's". I have seen information on purchasing a relay kit for the HID's and the AE's to make these work like I want, to avoid any error codes, and to re-route power to HID's from battery directly. Rather than just piecing a bunch of random relay kits and harnesses, I decided to just re-wire it up myself.

I am currently in the planning stage. I will be using GXL wire, WeatherPack connectors, and a Bussmann 15303 relay/fuse panel. I came across a great website to help plan out some complicated wiring beforehand.

Here is a copy of my schematic I put together.

Once I receive my fuse panel and the weatherpack connectors I ordered (already had the wire, etc), I will begin wiring this up - maybe I will do a DIY. Link to fuse panel below.

Hopefully this will help someone out looking to do something similar. Take a look, if you see any problems with my "plan", please let me know!

And again - yes I know this is overkill, but I am enjoying the process and like to have a clean/factory look, so I hope this will help achieve that.

***Well I was trying to include links to my parts and schematics, I'll have to figure out how to do that around my restrictions?

Updated schematic - decided to add separate relays for the HID's so that I do not have any splices in my terminal, not a fan of "Y" splicing out of a terminal. Also, decided to go with a bussed relay/fuse panel Bussmann 15303-5-2-4 so that I only have 1 power wire running into the panel instead of 5 individuals.

Looks good. I did a very similar thing when I re-did my ignition, added engine electric fans, heated seats, and gauges. Only difference was I hand drew my schematic and I built my own fuse panel :p

This is good practice for me, never have been real good w/ electrical work.
