    I just finished installing 4 ditch lights on my hood plus I did the Auxbeam 6 gang box and finished installing the control panel neatly inside

    my question

    the control panel needs to be tapped into the fuse box. It can be in the cab or or in the engine compartment. Anyone have a suggestion on which fuse I just use? This is the first time I’ve worked on a Toyota as my 2022 4R is the first Toyota I’ve owned. The control panel needs 7.5 - not a fan of wiring it to anything critical. I just don’t know what to wire it to. They did provide the “add a fuse” tap.

    Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated.

    There is no way that is possible it uses that much power by itself, maybe it uses 1-2amps total to work, and a 3 or 5a fuse would be just fine. Im much more inclined to think they simply included a 7.5a fuse for you in case you dont already have your own.

    For example, the guys in this write up used a blank ignition switched spot in the cabin fuse panel https://trail4runner.com/2020/01/03/diy-switch-panel-switch-pros-spod-alternative/. If you search "add a fuse location" itll take you right to that picture.
