Offroad Trailblazers and Envoys

Some questions about the LED Light Bar in my car

Breaker 1-9, anybody got a copy? Any discussion or mods relating to electrons and wires go here.

The below image is the setup I would like to have in my car.

I tried to illustrate it as best as i can. I do not want to go straight to my car battery for warranty purposes.

So my questions are:

·What size fuses do I use and where do i put them? I am able to insert a fuse at the cigarette lighters.
·What size wires must i use?
·Is there a better way?

Please feel free to edit the image.

First thing...

Don't use the cigarette lighter sockets.

Next, assuming your "car" is a TB, why not use the terminal on the under hood fuse box for the charge power for the trailer wiring? You can attach there and use the appropriate size fuse to feed the relays for your LEDs.

If your LEDs did not come with a wiring kit, your best bet would be to obtain one and use it as a start for your wiring purposes. You can make changes as needed to fit your specific application.

Again, do not use the cigarette lighter sockets.
