Help with halo wiring

I will soon be wiring up a bunch of stuff and was wanting some guidance before the job starts. I'm wanting to run all the halos to a switch in the truck. There will be 2 different halos so I want them to run to two different switches. Could someone maybe make a simple diagram to show me the best way of doing this? And what parts do I need to buy to make this as easy as possible. This is my first wiring project so any input you have would be much appreciated! Thanks

Re: Help with halo wiring

new project.......

Look at the post above. You're basically going to have TWO of those circuits in the diagram, and you'll have TWO wires running out of the cab to the halos. If the halos are LED, they won't likely draw too much power so you might be able to get away without the relay, but my suggestion is to put it in. I don't believe in drawing too much power off the existing harness.

You can run 16 gauge from the fuse box to the switches and out through the firewall. Run 12 ga. as the ground, from the battery and to the lights. The 12 ga. is overkill, but I'd rather they be more than sufficient and not be subject to heating up from trying to carry too much amperage. 14 ga. would probably me more than sufficient.

Re: Help with halo wiring

Yeah they're LED, but i defiantly want the relay hooked up. What exactly is the indicator switch for? I'm going to be using a rocker switch that I ordered online and not a toggle if that matters.

Also, will this let the lights come on separately? I want them to come on separate. Will I need 2 relays?

Re: Help with halo wiring

Just treat each one as an independent light. As long as you hook them up independently from each other they will come on separately. So yeah two relays needed. As for the switch, toggle or rocker it still wire in the same

Re: Help with halo wiring

The indicator light is optional, and may or may not be inside the switch. Yes, you'll need two relays. BBF is correct. Treat each one as an independent light, because they are. Two complete circuits, one for each halo setup. That will insure you'll be able to have one or the other or both on at the same time. Rocker or toggle switch makes no difference.

Re: Help with halo wiring

I'm running at least 500 leds on my truck and only using a 30 amp fuse. Been so for years. And I just ran my bed light kit with out the relay with no probs. That's 16 feet of leds off the battery. Running a duralast gold bat for now. I wouldn't go too heavy on the gauge either. 14 or 16 gauge is fine for led lights.

Re: Help with halo wiring

I know I don't exactly need the relay, but it's just to make me feel better about the install. Lol. Plus my truck only had 8k miles and still has the stock battery so hoping the relay will a least help a little. How should I run the wire to the cab? Drill through the firewall? Or is there a pre existing hole I can feed it through?

I used the rubber grommet where the hood release cable pass through the firewall. Push a metal shirt hanger through it from the inside to the engine bay.
Attach your wires to it and pull it back through.

Ditto this. Exactly what I did. I have 3 small gauge wires running out of there to various aux lights.

Re: Help with halo wiring

It'll help. Most of my connections are done using the butt type of crimp connector. I suck at soldering.

Butt crimp connectors


You can go to Autozone or any auto parts store and get a "kit" that has an assortment of connectors.

Re: Help with halo wiring

i used the same hole for running wire. you can use any type of connector you feel will work. I use twist style, butt crimp style, twist crimp style. i suck at soldering too. just finally learned when i had to do my bed lights. and i don't know about you guys, but liquid tape has become my good friend.
