Horn realay used as headlight relay.

Recommended Posts

Can a 6 volt horn relay be used also as a headlight relay. Will it handle the load of two 6 volt headlight bulbs. I'm having a hard time fining a 6 volt headlight relay. I bought two on ebay and they don't work. I think they have got rusted inside. Thanks

The horn relay contacts will handle the load but the relay winding isn't designed to handle the continuous current to keep it latched. It will eventually burn out the coil winding.
