did you ground it?? i've installed some before..put in an inline fuse and ran it straight to the battery..you can also put it into your fuse box as well..did you make the switch yourself?? or did it come with one?

Which fuse did you run into? interior dome light is the best fuse to run into, imo. as long as they are LEDs and not neons.

i ran a wire from my terminal under the hood through the firewall to a rocker switch that is mounted in my lower dash panel (near where the door is with the trunk button). That wire has a 15 amp in line fuse attached under the hood. Then i have another power wire from the rocker switch to the LEDs, and the LED ground wire attached to the body behind the panels, the rocker switch also has a ground wire run to the body in the same spot, bc its illuminated. This way the current from the terminal only flows to the LEDs when I flip the rocker switch. This is also where i have my fogs wired in. I can try and take pictures.... But for now hope this helps.
