Wiring

Recently bought a 2 foot long led light and i have no idea where i should wire it. Since im still under warranty i dont wanna be splicing it to anything i shouldnt. Can i just wire it directly to my battery for quick and easy removal if i need to?? My experience with car electrical is quite slim so im lost lol. Only other option i can think of is tapping into one of the front side markers, but theyre not always on so i can only assume power isnt always running to them when the cars on? Helllllpppp lmao

You could use a add a circuit and then ground it to the body

Are you adding interior or exterior lights?

Either way you add it to the fuse box, there's one in the engine bay and one inside the car

What I did is I wired a button to the inside of my footwell and added a circuit to the inside fuse box(dome light) for all exterior lights, that way I can turn them on even of the car is off

The wire is just long enough to make it to the underhood fusebox too so im set lol. My light came with a handy lil keychain remote. Works good too, temporarily wired it to my battery to make sure it worked and the remote was pretty powerful, it worked from inside my house

Correct just Google add a circuit autozone and it should come up with it, it's pretty self explanatory just don't forget to ground it

check manual for unused fuse. get a fuse adapter and put it in the unused fuse slot. That's your +ve or 12V wire. Connect that to your LED +ve and the negative can be grounded anywhere on the metal pr screws of your car.

Here is the fuse adapter. You can get this at autozone or orielly.

Yup thats what i did
Adapters i tried at first didnt work (dick gave me the ones) so i said f the unused slot when i realized that i had a fuse for heated seats but no heated seats so i just grabbed the plug and play add a circuit and used that instead.

Thats the exact adapter i ended up with in the end. Most convenient thing ever

Very cool. Saw your other thread just now, too. These cars really benefit from front-end appearance mods! Look much more aggressive.
