    Default Ballast wiring????

    I purchased a pre 06 ballast switch plate( bertha ballast) from a dealer going out on ebay. then i ordered the triple ballast wiring harness from my dealer 06 to 08. the switches are the same, the harnesses match up perfect for all colored wires except for the top left RED wire, wiring harness has it, switch plate does not.

    Any idea where that red wire goes on the ballast plate?

    i have also enclosed the 08 and forward switch plate for comparison.

    2nd pic, top left red wire in the #15 slot, on the right hand side no red wire.?

    just got the schematic from BH electronics in TN and looks like the new GIII switch plate added a relay into the fold, ( i believe is the missing red power wire.)

    Do i need the relay? and if so wehere is the best place to get one.

    Yep, on my 08 there was a relay for the fill pump. I removed it when I went to the Tsunami setup. If you want it it's all yours, just let me know.

    Yup, it is for the relay. Just curious, I assume the relay allows the three ballast switches to all use one 10 amp fuse. Not real familiar with how the electronics exactly work, anyone an expert in this area??????

    jmvotto, I think you might want the relay.

    Ha! I guess I am partly responsible for this crazy upgrade of yours so it's only fitting that I can help out a little here. No need for the prepaid package... this relay will fit in the smallest of mailers and will be $1 to ship. Just PM me your address again since I had to clean out my inbox and I'll get it in the mail.

    Anywhere I can find those ballast switches? I see the individual rocker, but not the plate or anything. Can't find anything in grey either.
