You can run the power wire into the cab to a universal
toggle switch. Then run a wire from the other side of the switch to the + side of your second battery.
Ground the light at the mounting point. Be sure to use a 20amp circuit breaker toggle switch, or splice in an inline fuse holder with a 20amp fuse, on the +
side. Hope this helps. Good luck.

    The wire you hook up to your 2nd battery's positive(+ or red)

    terminal, is your power wire. This is also the last wire you connect.

    You have to find the best way to route the wire to the switch(or fuse then to sw.) Now run another wire from the 2nd post on the

    switch to the light. There should be 2 wires coming from the light,

    ground 1 wire to the mounting bolt on the light. Just make sure it's

    a clean metal surface. Now connect the power to the light, and

    connect the power wire to the battery, and let there be light.

    Let me know how you make out. Good luck.

Need headlight wiring diagram for 2013 Kia Rio,want to fit spotlights

you will have to fit a relay into the system. Tap a wire into the high beam power wire for the headlights. (Piggy back connection) take this wire down to the fitted relay to a coil pin on the relay. connect a wire to the other coil pin of the relay and return to the dash area to an control switch through it then to an earth point.. Run a wire to an inline fuse directly from the battery ( fuse close to the battery as it is a high current line) down to one pin of the relay. connect up the power wire for the light to the opposite pin on the relay and connect the earth wire of the light to an earth point

According to road regulations you cannot have spot lights on by them selves and they must only operate in conjunction with high beam operation.. The setup as I describe allows you control of when the spotlights will be on ( switch in the dash) and if on will be extinguished when low beam is selected as per regulations. The relay ensures that the trigger wires do not carry full light amperage so light gauge wires can be used and only the power wire from the battery to the relay to the light need to be heavier gauge.

Spotlight wiring in landcruiser

I would just tie into the high beam wiring at the factory lights, wire them into a relay and go from there. I wouldn't even consider adding into the high beam system without a relay. You may also want to consider a switch so you can shut them off if you found yourself in a position where you want your factory highbeams but not the extra's. Good luck and have fun :)

I have a 80 series landcruiser done the spotlights but thay keep blowing my head light fuse the wires are 2 times bigger than the ipf kit

The fuse has a lower AMP that is why it is blown every time you switch on the spotlights. In order for the fuse not to be blown, my suggestion is try the direct connection on the spotlights. Connect the spotlight directly to the battery. Just put a switch on it. If you want to use the spotlights, just press the switch.
