add a fuse has the two prongs like a regular fuse but has two spots on top where you can addone or two fuses and has a wire where the power would be connected to it. the two prongs would go where the radio fuse goes. or any fuse in the interior fuse box. i did my setup like this.

used autozone neon tubes, cut the cigarette lighter off and connected them to a switch

LED Interior Lighting Kits

if you going to interior lighting this is the way to go because its like twenty bucks or so per neon bar and with one of those kits you can choose the color and get four LED bars and have seven different settings and all you do is run a power wire to the battery and then ground it out wit the ground wire. the hardest part about the install is hiding all the wires haha







the pictures arent very good quality but can help ya

I'd say blue. i got silver balt, gonna do blue underdash, like I had in my civic. \hiding wires is not hard, theres plenty of spaces to hide them, the most important is hiding the tubes so you don't see the LED's. I'll upload pics when i finish my install nxt week, perhaps I'll write up a how-to.

So easy even a caveman can do it. Lol

all you would need is a switch, wire strippers, wire connectors and an add a fuse. Zip ties too. One thin I remembered now is that most switches have three prongs to connect wires to. Power from neon tube goes on switch and from switch to fuse box. The ground on the tube goes on the switch also but you don't have to run it to a car ground. It just connects to the switch.

theres two wirees that come out of the neon tube. power and ground. ground goes to ground on switch and power to power.

heres a pic of the add a fuse power wire from neon tube gets connected to the blue and you can see the slots on top where the fuses go. the two prongs on bottom go on the fuse box. just pick a slot.



i would look at the fuse box diagram, there it should tell you what are spare slots to where you can connect to get power



number 21, 14, 12 u can use
