    Ok, here is the situation. I purchased a cold cathode fan grill. The
    cathode connects to the black box, the from there there are a red and
    black wire that comes out from the other side of the box. From there,
    those 2 wires run into a female connector with 4 pins. Then the red
    line and a yellow line from the connector run to a switch. I already
    blew one box after i cut the wire coming from the black box and tried
    to just put it to a negative and positive in my battery. I need to
    know how to run those cathodes to my car?

    Ok, you need to know if the lamp is 12v or 5v

    If you connect it to the PC power supply, what colour wires are connected on
    the power supply side?
