Electrical gurus I need some relay insight

I want to wire something that stays on as soon as the key is on/engine running, but I want it to shut off when I turn the headlights on. I'm sure I can do this with relays but I'm kind of having a brain fart on how to go about it. Any help?

what if we leave the KOER out of the equation just because IDK what the headlights can do with the key off on your truck ?

and just say you want the device to go off with the headlights ?

you would use the headlight power to activate a relay coil and break ground

use a 5 pin relay like the easy to find units with the 87 and 87a

85 to ground
86 to your headlight power from switch

30 and 87a is normally closed so use this for a pass through either + or - to your device

when the coil 85 and 86 receives power it will break the circuit 30 and 87a





you would just need to find a KOER positive lead for the device and depending on the amp load yo may need another relay to isolate it

This is a diagram of the "safest" way to wire it. Theres other ways but this would be the best
