I purchased LED fogs with RGB halos from LED Factory Mart, and overall they look great and so what they're intended to.

My issue is that with the included kit, you used a direct connection with positive and negative leads that connect directly to the battery, meaning that I have to manually turn the halos on and off.

My question: if I remove the positive connection to the battery, and connect to a fuse tap (cigar lighter fuse in this case) will I achieve what i want as far as the halos powering on with the ignition?

Connect the negative to the factory ground point under the hood on the passenger side fender.

Yes, connect the positive to that fuse using a micro fuse tap. That size is not usually sold in auto part stores, so you may need to purchase the fuse tap from Amazon.

Stop teasing me with the halo support, you know I want to get halos and the Oculus were at the top but I don’t want any hassles with Oracle, the Oculus see to have the cleanest install with just the one fuse taped wire.

You can use the heated seats fuse w/ your tap, that seems to be the best source
