My queston is how do i make it so i can turn the halos off. I kinda like being able to have them on even when the car is off but need a way to make that optional. If i add another switch just for on and off how would i wire it?
They are always on because you wired them to the battery post I'm guessing. Meaning they are always hot. You need to install a rocker switch between the halos and the battery. Very simple.

You don't have to use an in-line fuse. The LEDs draw such a small current that they really cant cause any wiring problems. That being said, the in-line fuse is that added protection.
