Warn 3.5 inch wireless fog lights

Hello everyone and Happy Thanksgiving! I have installed a new set of 3.5 inch fog lights on my windsheild. I am hoping that i installed them correctly! I connected the wires to the battery along with an additional wire to the positive terminal. ( which i followed right from the instructions). Doing just this, i was able to switch them on and off using a wirless remote control. ( without running a switch through the fire wall). My question is " was i supposed to do anything else" as far as connecting anything to the fuse box or anything like that? Im not too good at this stuff but i love trying! Im afraid that my battery might get drained if i did this wrong. Any thoughts? Thxx

If you followed the directions and can turn them on & off, everything sounds good. I'm not familiar with these lights, since I have something else, is the circuit fused as provided? If so, life is good, If not I would suggest adding a 20 amp fuse to the main power line , close to the battery. The additional wire you added is probably the coil positive feed, it should have a 3 amp fuse, if it doesn't have one already. If you don't know if the circuits are fused, call Warn Tech Support, they can tell you, if & where the fuses are, & how to change them.

The only other comment I would have, regards an earlier post where the OP forgot his lights were on & he had his lens covers on as well. When he came back, he found the lens covers were melted. So... remember to turn your lights off...LOL

Yup, sounds good. You could run the smaller control wire to an ignition source, like the fuse box, to prevent the lights from working without the key. I would leave it how it is, though. As said, make sure everything that connects to the light and battery has a fuse, pos and neg (but they should ground locally).
