Hi there, about to add driving lights to my X-Trail, but not sure which wire to connect the relay to. Is the X-Trail ground switched? I see 1 red wire and 2 black wires to the headlights. I assume the red wire is hot (12v), but the other 2? There's a black with red stripe and a black one. I guess the red stripe is for the high beam? My Subaru Forester is ground switched meaning I had to connect the relay to the +12v and the high beam return to activate the driving lights rather than the standard high beam and earth connections... Is the Nissan the same?

Sorry about all the questions!

It's OK, I've done it by trial and error. Nissans are NOT ground switched (this means that all wires remain high (+12v) until one is grounded to put a light on), unlike Toyotas and Subarus, so I just connected the relay across from ground to the black with red stripe headlight wire, and everything works fine.
