I'm having this buzzing as well from my relay. I have my setup like the image below. Any way to get rid of the buzzing???

Thanks,

Alright. I got it figured out. Well, mostly figured out. I still get a very minor buzz but nothing that I can't handle.

I used a 1000uf 35v capacitor that was bridged between 85 and 86 on the relay.

Thanks a bunch guys! Couldn't have done it without you!

This was the final output for my WJ under mirror lights -

I did the same on my xj, two switches one for the white and one for the red. Red in the interior under the dash and seats. And a set of three leds in the trim under the radio hooked up to the sub. Replaced the dome lights with white led panels I made and hooked up some whites to the hood switch. I never need a flashlight working on or under it again.

This is on the top of my favorite mods list, right next to the carbon fiber trim mod. I didn't do all around the Jeep though, just under the mirrors.

update on mine, the Wisconsin winters weren't nice to the side lights on mine so I had to buy another roll to replace those. I ended up taking Two 6 inch strips and adding them to the rear axle one on each side of the drive shaft. I plan to add another eight inch LED strip on the front axle. All of the axle lights are facing inward towards the center of the vehicle so I have lights all the way around the outside and when I'm done I'll have lights facing inside as well. I'll post up pictures once I get the front axle done and taken care of

I need help I have run into a few issues with mine. I added rear axle lights tap those into other lights that were already on the vehicle and now the and fuse keeps popping, and what I put a slightly larger fuse in it melted my power wire from the battery to the relay. Why would adding two more lights cause this to happen any ideas would be very helpful. I am using the same power for the four underbody lights as I am for the two axle lights that I had added.

Never put a larger fuse in unless the wire is rated for it. (You already know why). Are you using the same type of led strips? It sounds like you have a short somewhere. I would go back and disconnect the new lights, test to make sure the old lights work, then connect the new lights one at a time. And see what happens. That will help you isolate the issue and let you know where you should be looking.

I think I got it sorted out. The wire from the fuse was smaller speaker wire. I replaced it with a thicker heavy wire and all is well again. I also added a 8 inch led on the front axle, I'll get some pics once it gets dark.

I just got my lights in, and waiting on my switches. I have never done any car wiring before. I have a few questions. 1. Is an additional fuse box required to hook up the lights? 2. I have a couple open relay spots in my current electrical boxes, can I wire up to one of those, or do I wire to the relay switch already controlling the interior lights? (I want the rock lights to turn on with the interior lights and also have a switch to turn them on manually). I have read though a lot of this forum and I just can't fully wrap my head around how the wiring is done. I understand that I need to go to a fuse, then a relay, but 3. where are you grounding the lights too? Just to the body of the Jeep where the lights are being placed? or do you run the + and - wires up to the engine compartment and ground there? Any help would be greatly appreciated, sorry I am new to a lot of this but I want to do a lot of mods to my Jeep, figured lights was a good, cheap place to start.

Thanks for that, knowing that I can use and inline fuse helps. I'll post pictures once I have it completed.

I wrote up a thread a while back with wiring diagrams for relays and circuits. Check it out. May help you.
Electric 101- Wiring relays

PS. Zed, there are pics and diagrams for ya.lol
The electric 101 was also really helpful! I just couldn't wrap my head around how to hook to to the interior lights relay. After seeing how you have your relays in the electric 101 I have a better understanding! Thanks again!
