i bought a pair blue led light and i want to install on my headlights. i did tried use add a circuit and ground the neg wire but my suzuki sx4 2007 engine fuse box does not have any amp lower than 10amp so it keeps light on even engine is off. also i cant find any leak that leads the wire from engine bay to under dash fuse box. now i tried to use a fuse holder and wire directly to the battery but light still on when engines off. is there any way to wire the led and light up when engine start without adding any switch?

If a switch turns something on and off.... Why are you surprised that your lights stay on when not switched off?

You need to steal power from something that only has power once the car is running if you don't want to add a switch.

Use the add-a-circuit to tap into something such as the radio so they're only on when the car is on.

When I can't find one I just drill a hole in the windshield to make one.

Do you have a 12 volt test light? Also, does your ride have a second fuse block under the hood? The owners manual will have a power distribution layout which should give details about all the fuses. Believe me, don't drill a hole in the windshield!

Don't tap into ANY wires leading to a HID lighting setup. Try add-a-circuit or whatever on your DRL or Running lights.
