This may just be venting, but any insight would be appreciated.
I just paid $300 for something i thought would of been not a problem.
Last fall i had a arb bumper installed, right off the dtrl on the truck and the amber on the bumper would short out, first the passenger side then the drivers, after about ten minutes of idling or driving. No fuses blowing, just the lights cutting out, they would come back on after using the signal, for a bit, then cut out. So, i brought it back to the shop twice, they checked connections, rummaged a bit, and they would come back on, til i left, and cut out the next day, kinda frustrating.
So, i just took it to a reputable shop today, they rewired, installed relays, and fuses for the lights. Their reasoning was, the extra arb bulbs, were interfering, or drawing a different volt than the dtrl bulbs, hence, causing
something toyota, to shut off the power to the lights, excuse my ignorance.
The relays were put in to power the arb lights, and not effect the voltage for the dtrl.
Am i missing something?
I thought they would be a simple tie-in? scotch blocks
The little arb white driving lights still don't work,
I don't mind paying for good, quality work, and they are busy, but, did i just get mugged while smiling?
Sorry for the long rant,
