there are different ways to draw power like cig lighter and a ciruit from an add a fuse.

heres what my switch looks like:

the black wire is the ground wire for the switch which i grounded to the same spot as my overlays.

one of the greens goes to the power source and i used the cig lighter source. The two power wires from each of my neons is attached to the second(middle) green wire farther down. Each of the neons should also have thier own grounding wire which i also grounded to the overlay point.

You can run them from a power wire too.. If you have an aftermarket desk there should be a power wire.. that runs from your battery or even if you have a system. Run the a power wire to the Power thing on the swtich than run the power wire from the neon to the Aux clip and than run the negitive to the negitive.. I guess its easy to do when I've done it a lot but you'll get it!

You should have gotten cathodes, imo.

They're brighter, they cost less, they don't buzz, they run at colder temperatures, and they don't require grounding. Plus they're really easy to install. thumbsup

you could try LEDs too maybe not as bright though but last really long and dont draw that much power.
