Message:
Is there any way to wire the lights to something that comes on with the ignition, so the lights wont drain the battery if left on?
I heard this suggested somewhere, but can't find any details. Thanks Guys!

wire the switch into something that only comes on with the ignition such as the radio or windows or something like that...it shouldn't be a problem because all your switch is controlling is the coil in the relay for the lights so it's a very small load...or for that matter wire them into your parking lights...that's how I've always wired any kind of fog/ driving lamps

Run the lead wire to your fuse box and using a test meter or test light you will find auxillary terminal prongs that are activated only when the ignition is on. Wire it to one of those. The lights will always be on when truck is running. I'd use an illuminated toggle switch unless you don't care if they're on all the time

i used a relay to get the power off the battery and switched off the factory Fog Light switch. then, when i turned on the fog lights, my KC lights would come on.
