    I had a 2002 dodge -which when wiring up for the lights, I found that the headlights were switched on the ground side. I didn't bother with the meyers modules, because I heard so many people had problems. I just used the parking lights as a trigger for my relays and turned the plow lights on that way. I plan on bringing this setup to my new(er) 2004 dodge truck, but did dodge go back to the Positive switch? Anybody know??

    thanks

    I've always thought it gets much better juice going to the bulb that way. But, anyone know if the new style dodge is positive switched or negative???? :confused:

    Im about ready to wire my sabers directley....The head lamp only. Ihave a bad ground issue somewhere on the left factory headlamp that transfers to the sabre as well when activated.

    Running lights and signals work fine. Modules are fine.

    Unless someone has some advice. Bad factory module of some sort?????


    Sorry SS. Im obviously not savvy to the factory wiring setup and cant help you.

    No problem, just curious. With the relay setup I use it really doesn't matter. Definately would try it rather than the modules. I've heard nothing but bad about the modules.

    Solved my problem.....minor corrosion on a factory plug. I practically eat dielectric grease for breakfast I use it so much andI still get corrosion.

    Bah. Glad its fixed.

    Hope you get your info soon.
