    I'm trying to hook up my roof rack lights to my auxilary button on my alarm remote.

    I've found the wire that is a negative pulse from the aux button. Just cant figure out the wiring / switch setup.

    The goal is to hit the aux button once - lights come on. Hit the aux button again - lights turn off.

    Anyone do something like this before?

    Or anyone good with relay/switch wiring? (I thought I was until I tried to tackle this).

    THANKS

    Over my head. I'm capable when it comes to following inst on this stuff - but unless it's pretty basic you shouldn't follow my advice.

    There are others here who you can trust.

    Hang in there, keep working at it, and someone will give you some help.

    Just add more info on alarm brand and model in order to asssit you with the mod.
    The Aux button could "perform" as needed according to the programming of the vehicle alarm control unit.
