Hella light install

I have a set of Hella 500 lights I want to install on the Aluminess front bumper attached to my 2012 E150. I am confused about how to wire them in and how to install the switch. Searched the forum but couldn't find any specific instructions for a novice like me. Has anyone done this, and can you condense it down to some easy to understand instructions?

Re: Hella light install

I chose not to install a switch. I wired the lights to trigger off of the high beam. What part of the instructions are tripping you up?

86 the yellow wire. Goes from the relay to the switch, and from the switch to ? To eliminate the switch and trigger off the high beam would I just tie into the wires for high beam. I am a true novice and am grateful for advice/help.

Yes, if you don't want a switch in the van connect relay post 86 to one of the high beam positive wires. Each headlight has 3 wires, low +, high + and ground. I used a multi meter to find the high +.

Re: Hella light install

Here is my install of PIAA lights on a stock bumper. However, I'm guessing the basics should be pretty similar.
