    Install a relay, my switch also burned as the lights were connected directly to the switch. After installation of relay, lights are now much brighter than before.

    the switch burns out mostly due to installing 100W bulbs.

    Using headlight over really is a really awesome job. what ever power bulb is used, no effect on switch or wiring. Light increases 30% to 40% . Its much cheaper and better rather than HIDs.

    using more wattage bulbs in the same housing = more heat = melt down or fire.

    your car your money.

    most electricians dont bother in installing fuses in the circuit either.

    calculate amps by this

    Volts = 14
    bulb wattage = 60X2bulbs = 120

    120/14 = 8.5 amps

    add 25% for fuse rating.

    100W bulbs x 2 = 200W

    200/14 = 14.2 amps



    btw - using the silly looking denso round relay is useless - its a POS - specially if you have a circuit at 70% of its load. Use a Bosch 30 or 40 A relay instead.

    I am using 90/100 Watt bulbs for about 5 months now, no problems yet. Got bulbs changed from Suzuki 3S, so they are responsible

    Btw, What does a Relay really do? And how does it affect the light output?:

    Never happened with mine Mehran from last 6 Years.........even never had to replaced the Bulb......I got done this job in my JDM Alto, OEM bulb was of 55/60.....now 90/100 .......No problem at All by the Grace of God........
    If electrician is honest, never let any loose connection, properley insulate the wiring, such problems never happen.

    I have relays installed in my khyber for headlights. Im using 100w bulbs as my reflector is not in good condition. My right side bulb's holder gets burnt every 2-3 months, what could be the reason? The electrician didnt solder the wires together, can it be the reason? Or is it due to heat? but if its due to heat why didnt left holder burn.

    The left side bulb and it holder are fine since 1.5 years when the relay was installed.

    Laws of physics are the same - no amount of tight connections, nitto tape or honesty can override them

    You have bad grounding at the sockets and change back to factory bulbs. Headlamps are more about reflection and light projection rather than intensity - e.g. HID in regular housing = useless because they are intense but dont have any proper aim back to the concave reflector - hence no cut off etc = useless headlamps
