Under the steering well. Dont remember what fuse i ran it to,but have a multi meter in hand,turn the key,and find out what works when the key is turned,you want to get the power source away from the battery.

I honestly have no clue because I don't know if there are relays in the harness or not. If it doesn't work, you may have gotten the wrong part.

The (red?) wire that you would have probably run to the battery as a source of power should be wired to the fuse.

Dude your making this seem complicated,the installation is simpler than a radio install..Which you seem to know all about.

3 Wires or harnesses? Prolly three wires to hook up a relay....

If not just trace the wires see whats going on and make it work, being a big shot installer you shouldn't need any more advice than that. Halogens are not polar so just feed them a current, switch it, and call it a day....
