Okay I recently visited my local autozone ( :/ , didn't have my air filter), and I purchased a L.e.d Light Bar by Pilot. This l.e.d light bar is a 12v that requires installing into a fuse box. I currently located my fuse box , but Im confused on how I go installing the ground wire, and the other switch to my head light fuse. Anybody willing to help to help me install this thing??[loveff]

well when i did my led's i grounded the wires out with the screw that is located on the right side of the fuse panel..but to ground the wire you can use any metal part of the car, just screw it in to hold it in place..and the i got my own switch and got a fuse hopper thingy and just used an existing fuse to power it....that's how i did mine, but i'm not an electric guru, i just did mine a simple way lol

easiest way to do it would be to buy an add-a-circuit.youll need an add-a-circuit (assuming you go that way for power) a switch 2 or 3 female connectors and it would help to have some extra wire and butt connects or whatever. plug the add-a-circuit in when ur done with everything so u dont blow fuses. run a wire from the add a circuit to one prong on the switch using a female connector then run the power wire from the led to another prong on the switch. strip the ground wire about an inch unscrew a bolt, id use the one by the fuse box, and wrap it around then put the bolt back in. if your switch lights up ground that too. put the add-a-circuit back into place with both fuses in and u should be good.
