I'm planning to add auxiliary driving lights to my CX-3. The KC HiLites instructions seem pretty clear, but I'm uncertain about where in the fuse block to attach the white wire (the one that provides power to the lights). I'd like the lights to be connected to an ignition powered wire so that they can be turned on when the car is running but not when the ignition is off.

Any ideas/suggestions/thoughts?

What kind of lights are you installing, HI-beams, fog-lights?
Are they for road use or for off-road use?

For road use Hi-beams are usually wired so that they only work when the oem HI-beams are on (In Europe it is mandatory). You can naturally add a switch to turn them completely off.

You cab read here how I did with my aux HI-beams:

Thanks for the reply.

I'm putting in KC Lites wide beam driving lights. As I said, I want the lights to be independent of the high and low beams, and only activated on or off by switch. So I'm looking for a place in the fuse box that is hot while the engine is on.
