so i have a quick question regarding 12v Power sources. I have an underbody glow kit, a wheel well light kit, and a grille lighting kit. All the switches id like to put next to my shit knob. I know i can use the 12v source for the cigarette thing (forgot what its actually called) but what other ones should i use? i dont want to overload one source. Thanks guys, i appreciate it.

The accessory outlet is fused at 20 amps. How much current do all your lights draw at once?

that i dont know off the top of my head, ill have to check when i get home this afternoon. another question would be, since we have open slots in the fuse box, could i just add a new fuse tap into one of the open slots and use that as a power source? sorry man, i know i ask a lot of questions

Open slots don't always have power, but yes you can if there is power there.

Had neons on my old car. Use the stereo power source and ground actually. The neons all wired into a box and the control box had the power wires coming out of it just used the quick connects and bam. Good to go

Maybe the heater motor would be a good one if it only has power when car is running.
