Lightforce lights come with 2 separate wires from each light.

One wire needs to be well earthed to the body/chassis of the vehicle.

The other wire from each light goes to the output tab of a relay. I prefer the New Era relays which have 2 separate outputs and I use one for each light.

The relay wiring is fairly simple and should be with the relay. You need to use a HEAVY wire from the battery's positive terminal to the input tab of the relay. Lighter gauge wire can be used to go through the firewall to the dash-mounted switch.......which in turn goes to the vehicle's high beam wire.
The relay also needs to be earthed with a HEAVY gauge wire too.

Probably the "hardest" part of the whole installation is finding the high beam wire to tap into......I usually go right to the wires where they are easy to get to at the plug, behind the headlight.

Hope this helps.

Ive also added a 30amp fuse, then i did basically what ROACHIE did.
There's a basic wiring diagram in vehicle requirements under "DRIVING LIGHTS" on this site..
Hope this helps

I wired my light back to the battery rather than the chassis but either way is fine.

Hi jonboy

I am fairly sure that all toyotas are NEGATIVE earth for the lights. this means that you take the power wire for the spotlights from the earth side of the h/light wiring.
hope this helps.

Hi jonboy, the link bellow will give you a diagram for wiring up any driving lights and if you follow the diagram, you won’t have to workout whether the vehicle have positive or negative switched headlight control which means you don’t even need a Multi meter.

Just wire as shown and they will work.

If you need any help, just post any questions here or there.

Cheers and hope this helps

By the way jonboy, the relay shown is the same as a New Era relay and wires up the same way.
