I was wondering if yu could use those jumper points under the hood to get power instead of having to run cables all the way to the trunk?

What I'm wondering is can I use the under hood points to get power for an accessory?

yeah you can. All my LED accessories are run from either underhood or under dash fuse panels... Wheel well LED's are runs directly off the positive and negative posts your talking about.... I've got nothing going to the trunk bat ecept sub/amp power

How do you hook the lights into the fuse box? I'm planning on putting a couple lights under the dash and under the front seats and wiring them into the fuse box would prolly be even easier.

On your fuse box is the positive jump spot. your ground is your strut tower mount bolt on the driver side. :)

I mean the cabin fuse box. I'd love figure out how to tap into that to get power for my lights :)

^^ You'd be better off running the wires and making a whole new sport for a fuse and whatnot onto your fusebox.

I have my neon wires hooked up to the battery in my trunk...A lot easier to hide under the carpet than under the hood

This could help people out, it`s called "add-a-circuit". I use it every time.
just be sure that if you need to use a 20A fuse for your new circuit, pick a spot that already has a 20A fuse there. NEVER pick a spot that has a fuse at a lesser amperage.



local parts stores should have`em in stock, or at least be able to get them quickly.

One of the cool things about a cobalt...
Jump from the front, or if more convenient, jump from the back =)
