12v Auxiliary Power for LEDs
« on: August 19, 2017, 02:14:52 am »
Hello Folks,

So I've done a lot of searching, but I've yet to find a clear answer.  Clear enough for me to understand anyway. :??:

Down the road, when I determine what accessories I want to power, I'll likely install an auxiliary fuse box to my 2013 C14.  But for now, I'd like to install a pair of fork mounted LEDs.
I've sprung for the Denali light mount brackets, and I've got a pair of small LED lights.  10W power, 0.53 Amp draw each.

My thought was, for now, wire the LED lights directly to one of the two switched auxiliary 12V power supplies.  When the ignition switch it turned on, the LEDs come on.

So on to my questions...

How do I find the 12V auxiliary power supplies?

Am I overlooking something here?  Is there a reason I shouldn't wire the LEDs in this manner?

Looking forward to advise, experiences, and words of wisdom.

Thank you,
Tim

One circuit is on the right (12 V cigarette lighter), another is on the left.
If you join the Facebook page, go to files and they have a detailed colored diagram to find the correct wire.

PM if you don't find the file or the wires.
