Why don't you just tap it into the parking lights? That way,your light will turn on when the lights are on?Does anyone know of a wire that is positive when the key is set to On or Acc? Either one will work. I prefer if there is a wire on both side and near the front.
I'm trying to add a light in the front that would need 12V when the engine on.
Im trying to hook up a LED bar strip under the headlight fixture. Would like to tap into a Ingition on wire.Why don't you just tap it into the parking lights? That way,your light will turn on when the lights are on?
So you pulled the 12V from the socket at the passenger side (was it the brown wire)? where was the wire ran thru on the firewall? was it the grommet?I just did this last Saturday. Didn't take many pictures, sorry. Basically I now have 12V LED DRLs that have giant capacitor in the circuit. When the car turns off, the DRLs stay on until the caps die. It's a little weird, but I like it.
