I have my wig-wag wired to the headlights(right before the plug, properly grounded and properly powered. Could anyone tell me if i tapped the wires in the right place, or perhaps any troubleshooting tips??

Question

What color wire(s) did you tap in to? What connections does your wig-wag module require?

You'll need to give us a fairly detailed description since we can't be there to look at your wiring.

Agreed more info is required.

Based on my experience, I had to wire the module into the high beams by locating splice 104 in the headlight harness in front of and under the radiator support left side - and not adjacent to a plug (not saying it can't be done). Locate this splice in the light green wire, cut it out, and connect one half of the module wires into the remaining left wire and the other half to the right wire.

BTW - the FSM wiring schematic is wrong when identifying the hi and lo sides of the right headlight ('95 page 8A-101-2). They are identified backwards - Pin B IS the Lo beam, Pin C IS the hi beam.

Alright the plug im' referring to is the headlight plug- right into the bulbs ( plugs are blue). I cut the light green wires (which are high beams) right in front of the plug, did the same for both. Ran right and left headlight wires seperatly and correctly to my flasher relay. My relay requires 30amp fused power, ground, switched power(seperate from fused power), and right headlight and left headlight connections. I beleive where i spliced the headlight wires, were probably the wrong place and should be the wires in the harness. Yet what diffrence would that make??? I am 100% positive the relay is working cause iv'e tried them out on some halogen foglights after mu unsucessfull flasher instalation. It has to be the headlight wiring. When i switch on the relay, the headlight just turn on and do not alternate.

By chance are you running higher wattage bulbs than stock? If so, I have the solution for you. I have recently completed an update article on the headlight harness that I designed several years ago for the upcoming issue of Impala SScene magazine. I will send you the schematic from that article and can assist you in its construction. take a look at the schematic and then Email me with any questions. You most likely will need the "blocking diodes" that are shown on the schematic to keep from powering both sides of your lights simultaneously. Without knowing what you have done, and seeing the circuit, that is my first and possibly best guesstimate.


P.S. The Email I sent got bounced back . . "exceeded storage allocation <[email protected]> . . . Service unavailable"
Let me know how to send you an Email
