I was asked to make a version of BeamStop main beam controller that could also manage sidelights and toggle between side and main with a single button (like a Caterham). I've done this, so I made a few in case anyone else is interested. They cost £85 plus postage (or I can bring to Stoneleigh): The unit is connected to 12V permanent (so sidelights can work with ignition off). It only draws 5.5mA so should not be a significant problem with battery drain. There are 3 relays (not included) – sidelight, headlight power and dip/main. With ignition off, the headlight button will toggle sidelights. With ignition on, the headlight button will toggle sidelights/side+headlights/off [repeat] With ignition on and headlights off, the main beam switch will turn on the main beam while the button is pushed (i.e. flash function) With ignition on and headlights on, the main beam will toggle (latch) between dipped beam and main beam.
I wonder if someone could help me. I'm fitting new LED indicators to my 2008 SEiW, leaving the rest as standard. I need to replace the existing relay as they are flashing too fast but for the life of me I can't find where the existing relay is. The chap I bought it from followed the build plans religiously so I suspect it's in the 'usual' place. Can anyone give me a clue where that is? Photos would help this 'novice but happy to have a go' member. Also would any LED indicator relay work or do I have to get one that works for LED and non LED. Thanks for your help
