Where do I connect the LED light strips to within the fuse box?

Asked by Feb 25, 2015 at 11:30 AM about the 2004 Mitsubishi Galant LS

Question type: Car Customization

Hi, I bought these LED strips to put under my dash. Basically it's just a black light strip
with 2 wires at the end (red and black). It says all I have to do is connect it to any 12v
source. So I was going to do that in the power box (I am aware that the lights will stay on
as long as my car is on). After I open the fuse box, I have no idea what to do, what
connects to where and where I am supposed to attach the red and black wires. How
would I do this? And also, I get that for the driver side I have a fuse box to connect it to,
but what about the passenger side? Where do I connect the wires?
Thanks!

Connect both sets of lights to the same junction point in the fuse box. Don't make extra work for yourself by doing it twice. Black wire is always ground. You will need to remove a screw or nut under the dash that is a metal ground point.(usually near the fuse box is one with a bunch of wires fastened to it) Crimp on a U or round connector to the black wires from the lights. Fasten the new connector with the other wires to ground. The red wires need to be connected to the fuse box. I would use the radio fuse for this. They make a metal clip that allows you to pull the fuse, hook the clip to the fuse, reinstall the fuse and it will give you a tab to slide a crimped female spade connector to it. So a trip to Radio shack, or any hardware store will help with getting the connectors unless you already have them

If you wanted to put in a inline switch this would be the time to do it. Then you can turn the lights on and off when you wanted to while the car was on.
