i acutally did it another way, i just followed the wire from the center console switch which is a red/yellow (I THINK!) This leads me to the headlight popup relay, then from there on I just determined which was the wire that went to the actual motor and which was the main SWITCH wire. I think the wire from the center console IS the switch lead. But then after that i cut the switch wire in half i connected a ON-OFF-MOMENTARY ON switch.

So on basic daily driving its on the ON position and when i want to open it half way i just flip the switch to OFF push the center console button, then toggle the momentary on with quick taps and it will go up slowly. the good thing about the 3 position switch is that after you hit the center console switch and toggle it up a little bit you can just flip the switch back up to ON, because it has to fully retract up then come back down. i wish there was a way you can just slowly tap the center console button but atm i have not seen anyone do that.

If you don't know what a switch is on a relay is, it is basically a 12v signal that switches a latch over to the main 2 set of wires that you really want to connect.

hope that helps!

the difference being, the way paul wired it you can turn on your headlights in the partially open position.

I still want to rewire mine to do that..

I dont see why this would cause any wear above and beyond just using the headlights. You are just stopping the lights on their way up or down. I havent heard of anyone having a problem with lazy eyes.

Why run with the lights on? No real reason, just for looks.

I did wire my foglights up quite similar to how Paul did his lazy eyes, and can attest that its very easy that way, no cutting or splicing of wires. And very easy to put back to stock if needed.

topsecret,

I think that you're either doing something wrong or else you've got different expectations of what "sleepy eyes" are.

What exactly are you trying to accomplish?
