I just can't find them haha, I am thinking they are under the engine bay fuse box, but if so how can I access the relays, help gratefully appreciated. I am fitting daytime running lights and need a signal from the headlight circuit to switch off the DTRLs when the lights come on.

You can track them down by getting someone to turn the HL on and off repeatedly while you listen for the CLICK of the relay/s. If hearing impaired you turn the HL on /off and that someone listens where they are.

The relay is in the guard behind the battery.

If you're only looking for a switching point, to control the DRL's, why not use the parker circuit? Straight forward tap off the positive through the relay.

If you get into the negative switching h'light circuit, you'll have to earth the new relay through the h'light circuit as well, otherwise the high beam indicator light probably won't work, and you could end up with DRL's coming on with either high or low beam.

As Phil said re the position of the relays, means you'll probably have to break your wrist in 3 places to get your hand in there.

Can't remember most of it.

Bob thank you for the advice. You are right in the high or low only issue, as you suggested I will be using the parker circuit as the trigger, power is coming off the wiper motor circuit - these newer vehicles' electrics are getting more difficult to work on...
