Can anyone tell me what fuse I can tap into for ignition on ? I'm working on a project to use a Fenix 4200 mini for some LED emergency light

thanks Jim K7OEK

Oh it is a controller for your different lighting, how many different lights are we talking about ? I only run a Fenix dash light and two Fenix front grill lights using the cigarette 12 V socket power and a single toggle switch.

Do you want this fuse to pull power for all of that ? Or just for ignition sensing ?

For ignition sensing, not drawing power:
I used an Add A Fuse in F17 for 12v ignition sense. There's a little drainage hole in each corner that worked well for snaking a wire up without having to drill into the fuse box or break a seal.
