I choose lighting chat but found it odd that it was for the exterior subforum. :lol:

Anyway, I don't want a switch I'd like the lights to come on when the dome light (opening the doors, using the keyfob etc) or map lights come on. Adding an in-line fuse is a good idea but wouldn't it be better to just add a beefier one in the fusebox since I'm running off the existing dome light (map light) line?
