    My relays* are taped and greased like crazy and shoved between the battery and headlight. That just doesn't seem right to me. Should they be mounted in a different manner?





    *It seems I have a relay problem and my trucks low beams will not light (with plow off) I have swapped the relay with the other relay and now the problem has moved to the high beams. Seems like I should replace the (now) high beam relay and problem solved. Correct me if I am wrong.

    sounds like you are on the right track. and yes, putting some dielectric grease on the terminals, wrapping with electrical tape, and stuffing them behind the headlight somewhere is basically what we do here.
    also, you can get a headlight relay at an auto parts store, you don't have to get a Western one.

    I didn't do anything now that I have low beams. I know...it is terrible. I would assume a new relay will solve the issue.
