Dude, I know you are excitable, but wait longer than 16 minutes to bump something... especially in the middle of the day when people are (supposed to be) working. =P

Think so? Thats actually kinda cool if it is.

The reason I want to do it is because all my neons are connected to a 4 way adapter, and its plugged in to the power source. The plug is transparent so if i found out how to make the power source light up, the plug would light up too.

Also very true...

As a matter of fact I was just thinking about that on the way up to school.
What kind of switch would I need to get? Right now I've got two neons connected, and ive got an led pod that I want to hook up.

ya u need to just wire them up having the splic block looks like crap

go to auto zone and look wear the fuses and all that stuff are you will see a crap load of them they are pretty mush the same thing just look diff and if all u got is neons a small one will be fine...splice in to the back of ur cig lighter 12v wire run that to the switch and then to ur + on ur neons then the ground back to ur cig lighter ..IMO ditch the neons and get leds less power and brighter if u get the right ones i had leds in my trunk so light up my speaker box and even some on the roof of the back seat for a lil bit but took them out

The reason I got neons is because I like the look of the smooth light since they're in plain sight, instead of a bunch of little bulbs. Plus they're cheaper

But where do you have your switch?

that is an s2k start button. a guy we rolled with at the varsity meet a couple weeks ago had one on his lude. i think a guy one pp sells them he said. the only thing i didnt like (he didnt either but it looks cool) is that it wouldn't always start. it would just turn over the engine and not fire.

whats a SPST switch?

any basic rocker/push button switch with 2 (or 3, if the switch is illuminated) leads off the back should work.

So i got the switch. Its like yours yogi, except the tip of the actual toggle has a built in led. Plus the flip cover is transparent red.

Oh yeah just one big neon, a mini neon, and an led pod.

As far as ground, do I connect it to the cars bare metal, or is there a cable?

Thanks thats what I thought ;)

As a matter of fact that pushbutton start looks kinda cool, I kinda wanna do it now ;)

Would the fact that I have a security system be an issue?
It features one of those things that kills the ignition if someone tries to break in to the car.

i think the wire the runs to the center on the cig. lighter is the + one. first if u got them wear u want them good if not put them wear u want to make sure u want them thear. 2nd run the wires to behind the radio and plez take time to hide the wires no pint in doing this if u dont it will look like crap. cut the wires at the end wear u would use that thing to plug it in to the cig lighter. splice all the (+) together and all the (-) together.. splice a wire into the 12v on the lighter. run that wire to the switch like it says on paper or back of the box the switch came in. o nthe other end of the switch hook up the (+) wire for the neons mount the switch wear u want and hook the (-) to the (-) on the lighter ut stuff back good to go

Preludeshalyn is on a distinguished road
you could also wire them into your parking lights so that the neons come on with your parking lights. what do they need a seporate switch for, it's not like you can see them during the day. thats what i did with my old accord anyway.

i used a switch like this in my subaru for a clean look, you just drill a 3/8in hole and it flush mounts. you can get them at radioshack

plus that little dot lights up when it's on.

So your saying I should use the power from the cigarette lighter to power the switch, and splice a cable back to the cigarette lighter so it will still get power, right?

i used a switch like this in my subaru for a clean look, you just drill a 3/8in hole and it flush mounts. you can get them at radioshack

plus that little dot lights up when it's on.
Because you can see them when you drive at night , but you want to
make sure you can turn them off if you get pulled over by the popo .
Also I already mounted it, I'm gonna wire it up tomorrow.
I'm assuming that your's had its own ground prong like mine,
since yours has a built in led too, correct? Does that ground go somewhere
different than the ones for the neons? Or can all the grounds be spliced together?

The way my switch's prongs are setup is like so:
=== power
=== acc
=== ground

i used the in line splicers u dont have to cut the wires for the lighter u slide it over the wire you want to splice into and then the wire u want to splice with then use pliers to crimp them together u get then anywear this is what they look like


as far as ur switch

=== power <---- hook to the 12v of the lighter
=== acc <---- this one**
=== ground <--- to the ground of the lighter

the acc prong i cant quit remember but i think if when u shut ur car of ur lighter goes off u can just hook it to the 12v power on the lighter if not u will have to hook it to the acc of the radio

So thats it? Just tap the power from the cig lighter to the switch, and attatch all lights to switch. Right?
Also can the grounds be spliced togeter, or do they all have to have their own place to be grounded to?
