Need hot wire when I turn on my headlights


Recommended Posts

I need a hot when I turn on my headlights on my '04 1500 CC 4x4. I removed my stock radio hoping to tap into the wire that turns and dims the lights in the radio, but couldn't find one. I used one of those needle tester the one where you ground it and and probe till the lights comes on in the handle when you find a hot . Anybody knows where else I could find a hot when I turn on my headlights? If you could tell me where and what color the wire is I would greatly appreciate it. Thankyou!

Would the wire at the headlight bulb be such a terrible choice?

What I'm trying to do is light up the 3 lights that are on the Homelink buttons. I'd like to be able to turn the 3 Homelink buttons on when I turn on my parking lights.

I was hoping to just tap into a wire thats hot when you when I turn on my parking lights. Also I was wondering if I were to tap into a switched hot, would I be overloading the circuit? It's just 3 tiny lights. Thankyou!

Aaahh, I see where you're going with this. Do you want them to dim with the dash lights or just to come on with the parking lights?

Hmmm...the way I would do it would be to tie into the instrument cluster lights from the dimmer control.
