Okay so I just ordered a set of Halo Headlights for my B5 and need help on figuring out where to wire the positive and negative wires for the halo rings so that they are always running not just when the lights are on. I did this on my last B5 and I wired it somewhere into the ECU I just can't remember where I wired it into.

Don't connect your headlights to your ECU. Bad things will happen.

Not sure how much power those halo's pull, but you probably want them connected to the 75x circuit VIA YOUR OWN IN-LINE FUSE THAT YOU WILL PURCHASE AND ADD TO THE VEHICLE WITHIN THREE INCHES OF THE 75X POST. YES THESE CAPS ARE TOTES NECESSARY.

If they pull more than 5-7 amps together, I'd recommend you add your own relay to drive them. Power from the 30 post (WITH YOUR OWN FUSE IN-LINE), and triggered from 75x (WITH YOUR OWN FUSE IN-LINE).

Not trying to be an ass or anything but could you put that in laymens terms for me? I'm new to the whole electrical end of things.
