keep us posted on what you found..
Tracked the package and it's in town as of this evening.
Delivery tomorrow and I'll try to install it then too.
I WILL keep you posted.
I really hope this works. With Dave's and my own research, it seems like it will work. There's really nowhere else to look because, as I eventually found out , the relay for the headlights is embedded in the switch.
To replace the relay you have to replace the switch.
Btw I also ran ODBII (have my own reader) on the car and nothing showed up there either.
