Wiring LED Lights to Activate with Remote Key Entry / In-car Switch


Sorry if there was a previous thread about this but I could not find it...anyway I want to add the Night Rider light kit behind my grill as well as under body LED light strips to my 2008 v6. My mustang's head lights and tail lights come on when I hit the unlock on the remoteless entry key and I want to tie these new lights into that so that they also activate when I hit my unlock button and shut off with the head lights and tail lights. Additionally, I want to add a switch inside of my car so that I can control the on/off of these lights if I want them to stay on for a show or just to show off. I do not want to tie them into my headlight switch because it's illegal in NY to drive with a forward or rear facing red light. Any ideas about how to do this?

tap the power on the headlights, run a switch from the tap into the car, then back out to the lights. If you want them to come on with the lights, flip the switch on, then when using the button the lights will come on/go off depending on if their is power to the lights. When the switch is closed, headlights will operate like normal but no LED lights will run.

Be forewarned you will be viewed as a ricer with under body lighting on a mustang. Also be forewarned, it is illegal in almost every state to have any type of under body lighting on while the car is in motion.
