    In the diagram that came with the kit it shows a wire going from the switch to the fuse box. How do I connect to the fuse box? Does it just need a 12V source or is there something on the fuse box I connect it to? The switch is connected to a relay which is connected to the battery and lights. Thanks.

    Often there is a place for a extra acc. that you don't have in the fuse box. If you take a male spade terminal it will plug into the spot where the fuse would go. One side will be hot the other will go noware. Use a test light to find out which is which.

    If your accesory terminal in the fuse block is already taken, most auto parts stores have "fuse taps" that you can hook around a fuse and hook a .25" female spade to, or since this is just the lead to kick the relay, you can splice it into the wiring for your parking lights, and have your off road lights work off of your headlight switch.
