Headlight Relay Kits

  Converting your headlight wiring to a modern relay type is probably one of the best 'bang for the buck' mods you can do to your classic car. A must when using modern halogen bulbs, it will also brighten your original incandescent headlights.

WHY you should install relays explained: BRIGHTER HEADLIGHTS

  Normally this is done by cutting the main wiring harness and splicing in a pair of relays. Most of us try to hide the relays under or behind something as well. Not only is this a time consuming task, it can be troublesome if a connection or component fails and you have no lights!

  My relay kit can be installed in less than 1 hour without cutting your harness. Not only that, it can be easily removed for shows or if it should ever fail. The kit also has built-in redundancy** that virtually guarantees that you will never be in the dark.

  These kits were originally developed for 67-70 Cougars but will also work on most Ford Motor Company vehicles produced in the 60s and 70s without modification. All -A and -B kits work with 2 or 4 headlight systems with headlight extensions. The -2 and -4 adapters are for 2 and 4 bulb systems that do not have plug in headlight extensions. Click here to see if an A or B RCCI Headlight Relay Kit will work in your car.

  Recommended bulbs: Direct replacement halogen bulbs are available from most car parts stores as #5006 (low beam - outer) and #5001 (high beam - inner) for 4 headlight systems and #6014 (be sure it says HALOGEN on the box) for two headlight systems.

HRKM - Headlight Relay Kit, Mini

  The Mini Relay Kit has everything you need to add relays to your headlight circuit - without cutting your wiring harness. It is equivelant to installing relays into your main harness like we did for years, but requires no modification to the wiring harness. The differences between this kit and the full kit are redundancy and controller size. This kit has only one controller with two relays and uses a wiring harness to control the opposite side. The Full and International kits have two controllers, one for each side, with twice the relays and three times the circuit protection.
Included in kit: 1 weatherproof controller, plug and play harness, 30A auto-reset circuit breaker, power wire, crimp-on connectors and easy to follow instructions.

Benefits:

  • No cutting. The kit is 'plug and play'.
  • If the controller goes bad, remove it. The OEM circuit will still work.
  • Each 40/60 Amp 12 Volt sealed relay has Negative Spike Protection built into it. This means no spikes or feedback to upset delicate electronics.
  • Compact size - controller is only 3x2x1.5.
  • Kit comes with 35A circuit breaker to power 4 halogen lamps at 7.5A each and is auto resetting.
    Notes:
    1 If your vehicle does not have extension connectors you need the HRKU kit below.
    2 This kit contains the minimum needed to add relays to your headlight circuit. It is not recommended for use with bulbs stronger than the stock 5001, 5006 and 6014 incandescent or halogen equivelants.
  • 3 It is the responsibility of the purchaser to ensure that the vehicle's wiring is in suitable condition to supply power to the installed lamps.
