I know what I am doing when it comes to electronics enough to screw stuff up. I wouldn't mess with the kit you got for the simple fact that I would screw up the soldering. I went with the kits from Florida Joe. Just my 2 cents.

Don't waste your $, this couldn't be easier. Think of electricity like water. Power and ground like 2 seperate streams. The lights in this case need to both streams to flow to it in order to work.

Start by hooking the power and ground directly to the battery. (50/50 power or ground wire...dont worry if you mix it up, nothing will be messed up) Lights should light up. Now all you have to do is mount the lights where you want them, and run the wires to the battery, making sure to tuck/hide wires along the way.

The switch is super easy. All it does is interupt the flow of power. You can place it on either the positive or negative wire. Doesn't matter, but I prefer the negative. I suggest going to a radio shack, getting a tiny little toggle switch 2 positions, and some speaker wire. (The kind with 2 wires side by side. You can just use electrical tape, but I recommend using some spade connectors. Ask the radio shack folks, all this stuff is super easy.

I placed my switch in a hidden place in the panel where the tool box is. Look up posts started by me, I have some LED ones that explain more.

Good luck!

As a 40 year master electrician, switches and fuses go on the hot wire. That way when you pull the fuse to work on it you don't get any surprises. Short out a hot wire with no fuse and you got big problems.

Without seeing your LEDs specifically I am not sure. I am saying to add wires, directly off your battery to run to the lights. And I guess you should run the switch off the power side.

Cavie,
I think what Chubb needs is a simple diagram that he can follow while he is down in the garage. If I was computer literate, I'd try to draw him one and post it.
Should be simple as there is not enough of a load to require a relay.

What say?
