Steven,  I'm with you...damn you Prince of Darkness !!!!!
IMHO the wires themselves are well up to the requirements but I would recommend that you spend a few minutes checking all the connections.
I have found that if they are not in pretty good condition they have a tendency to cause problems by over heating and damaging stuff.
Just pushing the bullets in and out of the sleeves and tweaking the screws on the switch works wonders..

I have run halogen on both my cars for 15 years or so, without relays, and without any problems. I use 60/55 watt bulbs, but I have a modern replacement wiring loom

Well after 62 years, one of my head lights burned out the low beam. Damn Lucas stuff, you'd think they would make something a bit more reliable. But enough of that. I checked the Moss catalog and they only offer halogen replacements now. My question is how much more current do these units suck up as I see they also offer a new headlight relay kit to help with the entire operation. Is that kit really needed? Or can I find some non halogen lights? Thanks in advance for the help with this as I always like to run things by the list to get the best possible mix of advice.
