take power source from where u want, direct from the bat if u wish with a switch, i prefer to wire mine thru the HU's illumination feed then the lights can only be turned out with sidelights, n u only need those when its gettin dark

I fitted some cold cathodes very similar to that last week. I just wired them in to the cigerette lighter feed. Its fairly easy to get to by reaching around the back of the centre console and the cable just pulls off the back of it.

Attach the black cable on the cold cathode feed to the black cable on the cigerette lighter feed, and then connect the red cable from the cathodes to the live feed on the cigerette lighter (green and purple cable)

Hope that helps. :up:
