Someone please make this DIY!

If someone more qualified than me would make this DIY, I would be so thankful!

Would someone be willing to make a DIY about how to make a switch in the cabin?

Will lots of layman terms with the wiring...

To clarify, I am trying to make a switch for my halos in the headlights. I just have no idea where to begin!

I saw the threads with running wire from under the hood to inside the cabin, but I don't know what to do to make the wires into a switch.

Thanks,
Roshan

its really easy all you need to do is put the negative wire onto a ground, take your postive wire and its going to plug directly into the switch, then your going to have a negative on your switch as well, and your gonna have one more wire come from your switch which is going to plug directly into a 12V or battery terminal.

Here is a basic layout of how it should look. There is another way you can do it where you use a relay but you shouldn't need a relay with halos.

Thanks! This simplifies the whole thing greatly! Btw, could you explain the power for the switch. Can I just use a fuse tap?

Yes, you can just tap into any of the 12v constant fuses
