Word of advise. Be very careful when you bend the contact terminal over. I bent mine over and the surrounding plastic bottom broke and the fuse came apart. Now I am on my way to the auto parts store to get another. This time I am taking the nippers to the contact terminal. Never did like the fact that the driving lights went off on high beam. High beam is when you want the brightest lights. Seems to me the scheme was wrong to start with, wouldn't it be smarter for the low beams to turn off the driving lights?

If you do the wrong one you can just switch A & B. Can't you?

Yeah you can swap A and B. I cut B and found that on my 2001 it is A that you cut. But both those relays are the same. Now my driving lights stay on high or low beam. But I am still looking for a wire mesh guard for my driving lights. If anyone has seen them anywhere please let me know. Thanks.

Make up a jumper lead with a short piece of wire and 2 spade terminals, save the relay if you ever want it back

There is a 48A and 48B. You probably modified the wrong one. I did and just swapped them. Fog lights on mine work fine now. Swap them and see if that works.

I guess what I'm really asking is, how do I know which relay to bend?
My box looks different on my 2000.
