Hey all, Just an idea but haven't tried this on the wrx yet.
On a lot of cars this can be done very easily. All you're doing is bypassing the relay by jumpering the two power prongs. There are typically 4 prongs on a relay - two "control" terminals that when 12v is applied on one (which is when the headlights turn on) then it connects the two power terminals (one is always hot, the other goes to the switch/light/etc). The easiest way is to take a 2" length of wire and put a spade terminal on each end and simply plug them into the 2 power female connectors where the relay would sit, which permanently gives power to the switch/device/etc. I've done this on a handful of vehicles and it takes two seconds and requires no splicing, etc. I would think it would be just as easy on the wrx...
