I did some snooping with a voltmeter by checking the leads on the other couple of switches that are nearby the light switch. I just turned the key to the ACC position & tested the leads, then tested to make sure the lead I found wasn't hot with the ignition off. I originally connected a power lead from one of the other switches' light lead. Not enough juice for the switch, so I found another that put out a solid 12 volts & spliced into that. It shouldn't be too difficult to find a lead you can use.cgray wrote:I am trying to install some aux lights on my pathfinder very similar to what has been done here already. I have the lights and switch ready to go. What did you use for power supply to the switch? any suggestions on how to run the relay wire through the firewall?
Where are you installing the switch? Any of the switches nearby can be tapped, it's just a matter of finding a powered lead from one. Seriously, if you have a voltmeter of some kind, it will take you literally 5 minutes to find a lead.cgray wrote:Thanks for the info. I found the same place last night you are talking about for feeding the wire to the relay and it worked out great. I am still not quite sure where I am going to pull in the 12V signal. I was thinking the top power outlet on the passanger side but it is not the easiest to get to. I did notice a few connectors that are not being used that may have power. Are any of those power sources that people on here have tapped into before?
