    I wouldnt think the horn idea would work unless you are always pressing your horn. Try to find a relay in the fusebox for high beams/headlights and try tapping into different wires there. sorry i couldn't help more

    get a multi-meter or a test light and unplug one of your light plugs from the bulb. turn on your high-beams and test to see which one is hot with the switch turned on.

    so here is what i did, i got the power from the horn, as it always has power, horn does not have to sound to turn lights on. it turns out that im an idiot and the reason it would not work earlier is because i was reading the fuse map upside down.... but once i realized what i was doing i got it working perfectly, I just put the wire in the fuse holder, then put the fuse in ontop to make sure the connections were still working, they are, so im done with it. Thanks for the help!!! now on to my next project

    I'd look at getting an "add-a-fuse" to make sure everything is snugged up. I'm sure it works fine now but for added peace of mind, I'd make sure it was solidly put in place.

    What part of the dash? The whole thing? If so, what for? Just curious as I'm assuming this has to do with the light install and I don't see why you'd need to remove the dash...

    Next to the cig lighters I am planning on putting the switch, (it's my only free blank switch spot) and don't know how to get to it without taking off the dash, or atleast the center part
