does anyone know how to set install l.e.d. lights?

I just got some LEDS and it wants me to connect them to my parking light(+) wire. However I have no idea where it is, being new to car wiring. I have a 08' ls. Any help would be amazing, or pictures too! thank you

is that somewehre in the fuse box, the fuse box has a pictogram of where stuff is.

My 'Balt, Camryn, is my baby. She's a black '09 LT 2.2L with the performance appearance package. I believe that if you take care of your car your car will take care of you.

They are just basic ones you can install under your dash. How would I hook it up to a toggle?

look up diagrams online, take a positive wire from the battery or fuse box to one end of the switch then the other end to the positive wires of your lights, then toggle on and off pretty simple

the LED package said to hook them up to a 12volt line. Where did you get the wire to hook your lights up in your glove compartment?

from the back of the bulb in the engine compartment-if you wanted you could splice into the parking light turn on wire behind the dimmer control switch on the dash to the left of the steering wheel-its basically just knowing how to wire stuff up in a car
