    Referencing the picture I posted it would seem that the large tabs are the coil and the smaller ones are the switches? In the video he crosses the switch tabs in his diagram but that's with only four tabs and not 6 like the one I have. Any idea which goes where?

    Yes, the two tabs that are facing different is the coil part.

    Of the remaining 6, the center ones would be the common part of the switches.

    So I've been going through the relay install and how and where to place the relay within the line. So far where I've gotten stuck is at the OEM flasher module. The DPDT relay is supposed to switch the polarity of the line so I would think the place to splice it in would be right before the bulb. My question is how will that affect the OEM flasher module?

    As far as I understand it the OEM system works by varying the voltage to make it brighter and dimmer through a flasher module. How will the relay effect the flasher performance?
