I know this is probably really common electrical engineering knowledge, but I am not an electrical engineer so I am quite lost on this.
I have a 2004 BMW and the fog lights work something like this: They start off, and when I press the fog light button, it is a momentary switch that then turns them off. They then turn off when I press the switch again, or high beams come on, or the lights are turned off.
Also then here is a link to the actual relay which also has a quite sort of diagram.
Ok, now on to my question or a couple of questions. Am I right to assume that this is some sort of latching relay? Essentially when 12v is applied between pins 85 and 86 it energizes closes the switch from 30 to 87 and completes its circuit. But since the fog light switch is only momentary, it essentially latches the relay between the 30 and 87 pins until 12v is again applied between pins 85 and 86 OR power to pin 30 disappears (this would be why when you turn the headlights off or high beams on the fog lights turn off)???
A next question I have is, is there a Bosch style relay like this that is a changeover relay. To explain, instead of either switching on and off the switch from 30 to 87, switch between either 30 and 87 or 30 and 87a? I am having a hard time finding a relay that does what I am looking for. It is possible it does not exist. In that case is there a combination of relays or wiring that I could do to achieve this effect?
