? for those with ARB lockers

Hey All,
I installed my ARB compressor, mounted the switches and ran the main wires. What I can't figure out is where to put the two small wires that go to an illumination source and ignition hot. My first thought was to tap the cigarette lighter for the ignition hot but ARB says the circuit should be able handle at least 8 amps. I wasn't able to see the fuse for the lighter but the wires are pretty small and 8 amps plus a GPS might blow the fuse. For the illumination source I guess I tap a dash light wire but am worried CANbus will have a conniption. An example would be that when I unplugged and removed the dash cluster the wipers and low beams would come on when the ignition key was turned on. So the system doesn't like to be messed with.
So the question actually comes down to where you tapped the source for those two wires?
Thanks in advance,
David

No one has ARB lockers or even just the compressor?

Are you taking about the wiring to illuminate the switches when your dash lights are on?

I have the compressor but haven't installed or looked at the harness it came with. However I have a few of the same switches wired up and am splicing them into the dash light wire

The dash light wire is one of the two. The other has to go to a hot ignition wire in order for the relay to function.
Did you splice anything yet? Did it affect the CANbus system?
