Headlight/Dash wiring splicing
 
So I'm reposting this from electronics subforum as it seems not too many people view it or are willing to respond!

Hey guys, long time lurker first time poster because i couldn't find anything via search

I've got 2 LED strips which I wanna throw in the footwells of my 2002 tj, and have them power on when I switch the headlights on. I'm pretty particular about this, otherwise I would have just spliced/run them off the 12v cig lighter and called it a day!
Would anyone happen to know which wires I can splice into to make this happen?

Cheers guys

I'd say just splice right into the low beam wire on your headlight plug and put the ground to the body

You want them powered on when you are using headlights ?

Better yet just splice them into the parking lights, that way they'll be on anytime the parking lights are on.

What year is your Jeep? When exactly do you want them on?

The wire you want is the black/yellow-stripe that comes off the headlight switch. Its for the parking lights.

Thanks Tiburon, exactly the answer I was looking for!
