Ok, I'll actually try to help the poor guy... Your best bet would be to connect it to any +12 voltage w/ a switch in series. I don't think you'd be drawing enough current to need a relay. You can find +12v anywhere, but your best bet might be the cig. lighter. Enjoy, and welcome to the forum.






Hey it might be rice, but that's not my decision to make.

Run a tap off of your fuse box. Find a blank fuse holder that does have power and tap that. Wire a switch in series and then ground the lights to a suitable metal structure under the dash. You should be good to go. Have a test light to find a good power source and try not to splice into the vehicles harness as those lgiths might draw too much amperage and create a fuse blowing problem.

sad sad.. if you cant wire up strobes what are you trying to show off??? a bone stock alty with flashing headlights??? Actully you can wire them up anywhere in the fuse box...say that you wanted them to light up when you turned on your headlights or maybe your stereo, then you just read the little sticker on the back of the fuse box lid find out which one controls what and ram the wire in there... the right side only has power. I actully did this one time, i was going to one of the not so LEGAL races. As i pulled up i turned my blue strobes on ( that i had bought just for this purpose) People ran everywhere. Hey like i said if you can't join 'em BEAT 'em!!!!

Do it like Rev says. And you shouldn't need a relay. I have put them in other people's cars w/o a relay and had no probs.

I had a Fire Dept sticker on my old truck. No one would look at me sideways as I drove past making good speed.

Ohhh, in THAT case, wire them directly to your wallet, since that's what the cops will come after when they see you driving around with strobe lites....
