Re: Help with halo wiring

What about th fuse holder? I see that on the diagram. And what's the best way of tapping into the fuse box? Maybe I should let a shop do it. I'm just trying to save 100$ lol

Re: Help with halo wiring

for anything i planned to control manually I tapped from the battery. I have a three fuse box on my battery for all my extra stuff. the only thing i have going to a factory fuse box is my gauge pillar. .

That's a $100 toward your next mod. LOL
Plus the satisfaction knowing you did it yourself.
You should be able to find everything at the auto parts store.
Fuse holder


Fuse tap


These are example, there's many variation to them.

Do you have halos wired up to a switch? If so, I'd love to ask you a series of idiot proof questions to make this easier on me. Lmao. Maybe get me some pictures of your set up? Parts list? And a write up on how to do it. I'd be very appreciative!! ill even buy you a few beers if you're on the east coast and attending the meet in August

Re: Help with halo wiring

Of those three wires outbound from my cab, one is for halos on my driving lights in the bull bar.

Find the fuse that goes to your right side power point in the center of the dash. The fuse is in the box by the glove compartment, and it's labeled. Pull that fuse and put the fuse into that add-a-circuit fuse tap on the side that completes the circuit of the two pins on the add a circuit fuse tap, the bottom, I believe in BBF's picture. You'll need an additional fuse that will be for the wires you'll run to your two switches. I used a 15 amp, I believe.

You're going to need to run two wires from that to the driver's side of the cab, so twist the bare ends of those two wires (16 ga.) together and insert those into the connector on the end of the wire from the add a circuit and crimp it to secure them. Insert the add a circuit into the newly vacated spot in the fuse box. Run those two wires up under the dash to the driver's side, zip tie to keep out of sight if need be. Now you're done over there by the fuse box.

Now you've got those two wires on the drivers side, crimp some blade (or spade) connectors (male or female, opposite of what comes out of the switch) to each of those two wires and put one on each of the switches. Now you're going to need two more wires of the same gauge to run out of the cab. This will likely be your longest run of wire because you're going to go out above the parking brake and take it along the drivers side under the hood, around the air box and over to the battery area, where I seemed to have the most room to place the relays. Go out through that grommet in the fashion BBF told you and pull the wires through and route them, zip tie where necessary. Install the switches wherever it suits you.

Mount your two relays in a location you can get to them before you completely tighten them down. Run two 12 ga. wires from the positive terminal of the battery to your relays to judge the length, cut it somewhere and splice the fuse holders into those wires. Put a fuse in each and connect those wires to your relays.

Find a suitable ground, and run a 12 ga. wire from each of the relays to the ground.

Now you've got just the two wires to run out to your halos left. Run 12 ga. wires to judge the lengths from your relays to your lights. Cut, connect, tighten down your relays and you're done.

All of my connections are the crimp type connectors, including the ones to the battery terminal. A kit as mentioned previously will have several types, just pick the one that's appropriate whether spade type (male or female) that goes to a flat terminal like comes out of the switch. Butt type to connect two wires together. Or ring type to connect to the battery.

Not really hard. Just follow that diagram above and make sure that you're connecting the correct wires to the correct terminal on the relays.

Hopefully I haven't left anything out. If I have, someone will correct me. I'm still running on very little sleep.

Re: Help with halo wiring

Is there anything I can put around the wire to cover it up from getting any dirt or water on them and to give it a clean look under the hood?

If you want to make it nice, get some wire loom. You can use black to match the factory loom.

Exactly what I did. Those uninitiated to the Titan would be hard pressed to immediately see my wiring. Nice, neat and buttoned up. I got the loom from Harbor Freight pretty cheap.

It all depend on what you like to do.
Easy would be just hook it up to your parking light. If you like to independently control them, a switch ect.... it's not very hard once you actually do it.

There's a variety of them.
-OEM modded to include the halo
-Aftermarket but look and work like OEM with additional halo (take factory bulbs)
-Aftermarket projector type that take the factory bulbs but usually light output is poor, HIDs type bulbs are best(similar to the link you posted)

Re: Help with halo wiring

well crap, guess i'm out some beers. sorry for the delay but the diagram Carbeaux wrote up is simple enough. don't want to through my mess in there to confuse things. my halos are linked to all my other green leds on one switch. so if i want green, it all comes on at once. grill lights, halos, engine bay, between cab and bed, all on one switch. bed lights are on a different switch tho.
