Well I put an inline fuse holder into my circuit. It takes the mini fuses. Well the one in the holder was blown so I just pulled one from the fuse panel. Well I happened to pull the one fuse in the panel under the driver side dash that is required to start the car So it took an empty stomach and a strong beer to figure out that I was an idiot and that the fuse was probably the reason.

Also stumped myself until I realized that I forgot to plug the harness back into the LCM.

I have pictures of during the install. It is currently raining out. And I dont feel like taking pictures in the rain. Once I get my fog lights in maybe I'll make a video.

Looks good CC. What size diodes and fuse did you use?

current fuse is a piece of wire. (jumper) I plan to put a 3 or 5 amp fuse in there. Because it is nothing more than a signal wire. If it blows I'll go bigger.

Diodes are like 600volt something other others that I had laying around here from a different project. Definately overkill but I'm known for that.
Something like this

Thanks for the compliments, BTW. If I can finish my homework in time to wire my fogs this morning then there will likely be a video or something to come.
