    Default Strobe Lights....

    I have some cheap strobes i bought from the local advance auto parts store. Just wondering, how do you go about hooking these 12v strobes that i wanna put in my headlights to a toggle switch?

    Are these the somewhat inexpensive ones that fit in a hole with a rubber grommet?

    i would think if they are the thin rubber slip ones you would just half to drill a hole aout the size of the strobe and glue it in or something then run some wire from your batt to switch to lights to ground and thats about it

    That's the kind I'm thinking as well - look to see what the size of the rubber bushing is, drill the hole, put RTV silicone and you should be good to go

    I don't have the time to have a look and give you some links right now but have a search for "light relay" and choose to look through the entire posts and you should see quite a few posts come up. Look for posts with titles like "fog lights to my headlights" "fog to drl" etc etc. There are quite a few posts and some with good diagrams. Instead of putting the fog lights in, substitute those to the strobes.


    Good luck,
    Steven

    Do you have just the lights, or is there a control box as well? I don't remember those lights being self-contained.
    What wires do you have?

    should be as simple as running your own power wire to the battery or fuse box under the hood to that switch panel then your strobes seem to be pre wired to the switch panel
