I have an 81 hatch, can someone tell me where the relay may be located for the passing/center lamp.

On my '82 it's on the front of the tower, near the fender, it's black and has green, blue and red wires with a blue plug? I think.:D

It says mitsuba on it and is black 2" square with the plug pointing out the bottom of it likely a clear 4 wire plug.

yep. thats it.

So i got to thinking,the reason mine was unhooked is a few reasons most likely. One, the arm lever for the light cover was nocked loose, and the center lamp switch was broken at the back, so it probably got stuck being on at some point, and they just unhooked it. I bet mine works. Yay.

got my fingers crossed. Any how, when i hook mine up, i was thinking about using all the stock components, plus a Hella relay i have so the 100 watt light will be extra bright? thoughts.

Me too. Pretty handy to have something that can stay on with the key off.

if you had an '82 or older, you wouldn't have to worry about that :banana:
