ATTN: All you wiring gurus.

Hello all. I'm about to wire up my new toys. I'm not that saavy when it comes to this sort of thing though. I have the sPod system and the wiring harness included with my lights is a bit confusing to me (I'm not that smart).

This is the whole harness:


This is the connector that connects to the light:


I'm thinking that if I just cut off this connector from the rest of the harness and run the red wire to one of the positive terminals on the sPod and the black wire to one of the negative terminals, that should be all I need. Can any of you confirm this or tell me how to make it simple. I'm self-diagnosed OCD, and hate having miles of wires.

Thanks,
-Chris

here here! i agree with the Dr.

Just check which switch it going to. I think there is 10, 20 30 amp fuses

12 volts with 10 amp fuse = 120 watts allow to that switch
12 volts with 20 amp fuse = 240 watts allow to that switch
12 volts with 30 amp fuse = 360 watts allow to that switch

Just dont exceed the total watts

Keep the nice connector that connects to the lights! Cut of the red and black wires as close to the relay as possible and use those ends to connect to the sPOD's Source.

John,
Hello good sir! I'll give you a ring tomorrow. I'm about to hit the rack. Gotta shake this jet-lag.

Welcome back, and thanks for your service.

Now, I believe you are correct in your thinking, however, talk to John before you wire it, because I am unsure about the s-pod "source". Make sure the fuse from the "source" and the one that came in the wiring kit are the same size.
