Hey Im gona have lots of neon lights running in my car and each of them wired to switchs that have 3 positions off,headights,on. Where would be a good connection to connect to for the headlights, so when i have my parking lights, or headlights on, the neons would be on. i really dont want to run a cable all the way under my hood to my headlight, is there a solid closer connection.

VNlilMAN will become famous soon enoughVNlilMAN will become famous soon enough
thats why he has a switch to turn off just the neons. and cops usually won't pull you over just for your lights.
well anyways, i have an automatic so i used the connection thats lights up the 'P''N''D'... this lights up when you turn on the parking lights(as well as headlights) tho. if you have a manual, just look for anything that lights up when you turn on the headlights and connect it there.

Pull out the 2 panels under your steering column and look for a bunch of wires goin through the firewall pretty well up in there. youll know which one cuz you can see it from your engine bay goin to your lights. find a red and black wire and tap into it thats what i did for my indiglos and indiglo pedals. If you need any more help check out the wiring diagram on the site and be prepared to have a sore *** neck

if your gonna have alot of lights running off of the wire use a relay....just use the wire from the lights as a signal to turn on the relay....it's quite simple...Relays are an installers friend
