Hook the negative to ground, and the positive to the fuse labelled "pimpin"

Sorry, I couldn't resist

Tap into your headlights, or wire in a switch so you can turn them on/off at will.

If you want them to come on with the interior lights look for the orange and white wire pair near the drivers kick panel. The orange wire is always hot and will connect to your light bar (+). The white wire is a switched ground. When the doors open or when you rotate the headlamp knob, the white wire grounds and completes the circuit. Hooking your light bar (-) will cause them to come on with the interior lights. You could also connect a SPDT (or an SPDT with center off) switch in the ground lead to make the LED strips come on at will or with the interior lights.

You should use a cigarette lighter adapter so you don't mess up your car's wiring.
