Exclamation Help on Wiring for my hella black magic lights??

Im almost done wiring my lights in, but i have one problum. In the wiring diagram it has me putting the postive wire going from my switch for the fog lights splicing into the low beam wire for my driving lights. My question is can i just run that wire to my fuse box instead, and put a inline fuse with it?

that's so your hella lights will only work with the low beam headlights. when you flip to your high beams, your hellas will turn off. if you want to keep them on with the high beams, do exactly what you said.

now, you need to check with your local laws. some states have vehicle inspections every year or two, and that may be one thing they check.

good luck.

Yes you can. You can also run the power from the running lights power wire or the high beam wire depending on how you plan to use them. They just want you to do that so you have to have your tail lights on to be able to turn your front lights on.

I have my lights wired to a separate fuse block. Another way would be to install a "kill" switch under the dash, but that more for the high power off-road lights.
