Off the top of my head,
Install the relay. From memory the coil terminals are labelled 85 and 86. One should be spliced into the middle wire of the group of 3 entering the headlight. The other needs to be threaded to a driving light switch inside the vehicle and then to a good earth.
Terminal 30 takes a fused wire from the battery pos; The opposite terminal (?87) goes to the driving lights
pos. Remember to have a good earth wire come back from the driving lights
to the battery neg.
Theres a diagram on the side of the relay that corrects my numbers if wrong.
With the Toyotas, the centre wire I mentioned is actually the high beam switch earth wire which will read about 11-12 volts when the high beam is on. The relays will work above 7 volts anyway. Only downside with this system is that the headlights must be operational for the driving lights
Again this is all off the top of my head - worth checking with a multimeter.
