What are the benefits of using relays when overriding the stock lockers vs. not using relays?

if you use the carling switches you need to use relays in order to make the 'on' indicator lights work right.
Not necessarily...

Use the yellow/orange and yellow/white leads on the factory relays and apply + to them from your switch.

Would be a combo of Page 3 & 4, wire the switch like Page 3, then miss out the relay like on Page 4.

Yeah Phil, that makes sense, I never thought about hitting the other side of the factory relay :shocked:

I thought I could do it without a relay by essentially wiring the lights in the switch backwards and switching the ground and it worked with the jeep on, but when the jeep was shut off I ended up with a pale glow on the 'find me' lights on the switch, some kind of back feed across the bulbs, so I just went with the relays under the hood.

Thanks :) i did it yesterday. I used the racing style toggle switches with the cover because i was concerned about the rubber shift boot accidently activating them when switching in 1. or 3. gear.
When i get a leather shift boot i'll switch to Carling switches.

No, as the switch is going to the CANBUS and the computer is controlling everything.
