    Headlight washer retrofit?

    Does anybody know where it's wired in? I'm guessing it goes to the washer system relay? If so is it the same relay for vehicles with or without headlight washer systems.

    I think theres a second relay/control box that controls the headlamp washers. The only fire up with the lights on, and i think every third spray or something.

    I guess you could just piggyback the existing headlamp washer feed though and have both pumps fire up together? Would mean you'll use more washer fluid, but would be much simpler.

    I can find the wiring diagrams for the stock setup for you if you want?
