Wiring Question

Ok so I'm going to tie in my gagues to my headlight switch. If you need to run multiple items off that one wire what is the best way to do that? Also I saw a link to a place for LED light replacements would they have them for gagues?

Funny, no essay this round! LOL

There is an extra wire behind your lighter socket though you can tap into. no relay for that little draw.

LEDs, go to www.superbrightleds.com Get the wide angle in any color, as long as you know what bulb you need.

I use them

I can hit it with the volt meter or a test light when I get home. I just dont want them to be on when I dont need them.

You got it, it is only hot from the key.

you can just tag the light hot wire and piggy back connector it. it will be fine, it's not drawing shit for a load.

I have my 2 gauge lights tied into my light switch with no problems. I did solder and water proof the connection. I hate electrical problems!
