Unhappy KC Daylighter HELPPP!

Ok i need some helppp!
Im wiring up some 130watt Daylighters. They came with a great harness and all the tools i need, but im stuck one 1 step...

I have installed all the light wires, ran the wires to a switch, and grounded the relay and other wires. All i have to do is attach the (white) wire to the battery (+) HOW DO I DO THIS???
The white wire is just a simple wire that is cut off... no end or cap or anything.


PLz HELPPPP
THANKS

you need an eyelet to crimp onto the wire then simply put it on the battery positive clamp bolt.

go to the parts store and find these. the trick is getting one that crimps onto a small gauge wire, but with a big enough eye to fit onto the terminal clamp bolt.

its been a while since i installed those, but one is a constant power to the battery. you also have a fused ignition only power. maybe the white wire is supposed to be ignition power, what do the destructions tell you to do with the white wire? you probably just need to splice into an ignition on power, or put a straight spade terminal on it and put it in an empty fuse spot in the fuse box.

Just that loop connector is all I used and I ran 4 lights on 2 circus and both outside the main harness. Where are you mounting the lights?

I have them mounted on the bumpber, so where can I find the ignition power to splice into?

you need a test light, although someone may know, i think i heard tj's have an accessory power wire already waiting somewhere for stuff like this. maybe a tj guy can speak up.

or a caveman way is just use the power wire off your cigar lighter.

I looked back at the directions and it says;
1.) attach white wire to positve side of battery,
and then on the diagram it shows the white wire going to either the high beam wire, the low beam wire, or the ignition.

so im thinking i need to splice into the ignition and just put the yellow wire directly onto the battery since it already has an eyelet

yep, the yellow wire should have a built in fuse if i remember right.

to make life easy, use your cigarette lighter power wire for your white wire, splice into that if you don't have a test light and can't find an empty fuse spot w/ power at it. i wouldn't just go splicing into wires you don't know what they're for, and end up blowing a fuse on the ignition circuit and your jeep doesn't start.

there are two wires at the cigeratte lighter, black one is ground the other is probably red, but may not be. you want the thicker wire thats not black

yes the yellow wire matters if you want it to work, it goes to the positive battery terminal.

And to splice you use the blue thing right?
Cut the thick wire and join it with the white wire ?
