That and if you tapped power from the driver side headlight wouldn't it show a pass. side error when using a relay kit?
I routed the wire in the front of the hood, along with the latch wire... Everything else is tucked either in the wheel well, or on the bottom side of the headlight assembly, pretty easy to do and not a mess, just takes a little time to organize.

As far as the relay/power issue... I should probably give it a simpler approach...

Think of each headlight as a lever that activates something.
In normal use, you throw the lever, it switches on a light attached to your battery.
With this relay setup, you throw the switch activate another switch that turns on a light attached to a different battery. The first light bulb that normally comes on... well it's been replaced with an iron ball....
