Interior LED's w/ Dimmer Question
I've installed some LED's in the footwells and connected them to a dimmer switch that I installed on my dash. Everything works well and dims as I expected. I connected the positive voltage of the dimmer to an "Add a Circuit" in the fuse panel. But I initially intended to place it on a fuse where if I took the keys out of the ignition, it would turn off the LED's. I wanted this in case I had accidentally left them on in the daytime and didn't know it. But it is not working out that way. Right now, I can turn them on and off without the key in the ignition.
I went off of #35 (A/C Switch, Instrument Cluster) fuse. Should I go off of another 7.5Amp fuse? Now that I think of it, the Instrument Cluster always has power because the anti-theft light blinks. Hmmm...
Would it be better to go off of #45 (Recirculated air, Air conditioning) fuse since this does nothing unless the car is started?
Also, I wanted to add LED's to the door handles but don't know how I can run the cables to the dimmer switch. Any ideas?
