Hi I'm new so please be nice :)

Ill get strraight to the point of what im trying to acheive...

Basically my car has headlight washer system. so basic circuitry would be a relay that uses current from the headlights as the constant live (when headlights are on) to activate the relay, and then i presume the stalk switch as the switched live to make the circuit to send current to the motor to actually spray the headlights.

What I want to do is fit a motor that is bi-directional (reverse polarity to make it spin in opposite direction so therefore i have 2 outputs that work indepentantly...effectively) however there is only 1 pair of terminals so relays must be used to allow the switch in polarity.

I want to be able to wire in a switch of my own that when i activate, take the headlight washer wiring circuit out (normally closed relay that then opens with current from the switch i have added, making it redundant) and then another 2 relays that are normally open to close as they receive the same current that are wired onto the motor the opposite way round (so + to - and - to +etc) so the motor will then recieve current to spin in the opposite direction but the current that is being passed to it is not then travelling back up the circuit to the standard washer switch.

Does this make sense? and is it not necessary, and can i just wire in relays that close with current activated by my switch and not worry about the current travelling back up to the standard switch?

Thanks

John

And am i also right in thinking if i did need to do the whole 4 relay system that some sort of time delay would be needed in order to delay the normally open relays from closing as the normally closed relays open. And then when I deactivate the switch, the opposite happens, so the normally closed relays stay closed giving time for the normaly open relays to re open...over a matter of milliseconds

I'm afraid any discussion related to automotive application / modification is strictly prohibited on this forum, so we aren't able to help you with this issue.
