I am installing LEDs in my center console to give it some light at night. I am using a switch with it as well. I know how to wire everything for the most part. I have one question though. What wire should I tap into to get power? I have heard that tapping into the cigarette lighter is a good option. Is the power wire easily distinguishable from the ground wire on the cigarette lighter? I have also heard that you can tap into the wire for the shift indicator light. How would I figure out which one is the power wire? (And please explain it to me like I'm five, I am confused on this part) Or are there other wires I could tap into easier?
Any other suggestions or tips would also be nice. Thanks!
