    Hi,

    I bought lighted wiper nozzles for my car. Do I have to cut the head
    light wires
    or is there another way to not cut them. Also if I have to cut the
    wires, what's the best method for splicing them together, if its solder
    can you tell me of a website on how to solder wires.

    Thanks, for all your help.

    there are plastic wiring devices at automotive stores that will
    "tap" power from a wire .... it pushes a metal probe into the one
    with power and connects it to the one you want to provide power to.
    I'd choose the parking lites and not the headlights if you are going
    to use this method. Otherwise get a wiring diagram for you car and
    find out where power is provided when the lights are turned on and
    tap in there.

    Why the parking lights, even the instructions that
    came with them, say the parking lights, but I never
    use the parking lights so, I will never see them.
    I have the wiring diagram to my car and I know
    where both are.

    Thanks.

    In most vehicles, the parking lights are on when the headlights are
    on.

    The reasons for using the parking light wire:

    1. it's physically smaller than the headlight wire and more likely to
    fit in a press-on "tap" connector

    2. If you do something wrong, you won;t kill the headlights.
