    I might be wrong but if that is coming from the fuse, you'll have to buy those ring terminals. Red is positive and will connect to the battery, black is always negative/ground and will ground next to the battery, and im not sure about the white

    If the kit came with wiring and a switch, it should have a little black box that is a relay. Below is a simple diagram of how this would get wired up.

    Well, their diagram sucks. The one on the product page at Amazon showing the actual harness makes more sense.

    The switch needs positive and negative hooked to power and ground, any switched circuit. I personally would use an add-a-circuit on the fuse box (red +), and ground to the bolt that holds the fuse box (black -). The white or yellow wire from the switch then goes to the part of the harness with the relay. The relay also needs power and ground, going through a higher-amp fuse (looks like they have on in-line already). Basically your switch turns on the relay (another switch), which powers the lights without pulling through your standard fuses.

    Well, I'm assuming you are using the entire harness that came with the kit. The white wire from the switch would go to the light harness. There should be power, ground, and a white or yellow on the harness that connects to the actual lights. Hook the white from the switch to that white/yellow.

    If you were pre-wired for fogs and are trying to use that wiring, this is a whole different conversation.
