    Which relay are you using, looks like a standard relay to me, but want to make sure.

    From the wiring you have, a relay is point less, because the relay solenoid will be energized all the time, unless the power input has a switch on it.

    I would do the following.

    Pin # typical 4 pin relay
    85 = ground
    86 = power from ignition source
    87 = going to your accessories postive terminal (+)
    30 = going from the battery with fuse inline


    see here for a diagram http://www.ado13.com/techs/relay.htm


    Make sure all you accessories are ground, negative terminal (-).

    Just for everyone information a relay is to operate high current devises, ie high wattage bulbs, or motors, off a low current input. Pin 86 power source should be no more than an amp or so, this pin is the solenoids power terminal (ignition source), Pin 85 is the solenoids ground terminal. Pin 30 is the power input from the battery use at least a 10 gauge wire, and pin 88 goes to the accessories (bulbs or other high wattage, amps, devises). These high wattage devises will need to be grounded.

    Bruinsme, you can wire the relay like in the diagram I have provide and eliminate the extra swiches or eliminate the relay since you already have switches.

    If you go the relay route, do a search for hella relays. Hella makes a waterproof relay.

    According tothe 07 manual
    Red wire - directly to the battery
    Red with Tracer - FUSED from battery
    Purple - Continuous power on with DESS key
    Purple with tracer - Switched power with DESS key.

    So tying 30 to 86 wouldn't work?

    I am assuming you are talking about the wire for pin 30, just install a waterproof fuse going to the positive battery terminal.

    I would not tie pin 30 & 86 together. I would say the purple wire to pin 86, but you want to test it with a test light, key on the post you have power, key off the post you have no power. The purple with tracer sounds like it only powers up when your finger is pressing on the start button, ie wiring going to the starter relay.
