Kemimoto LED Rearview Mirror wiring?


Recommended Posts

I’m new to the forum and a new owner of a ‘22 Defender Max Lonestar HD10.  This thing is a blast!  So my question is how to wire the LED mirror I purchased.  The kit comes with the harness, relay and rocker switch.  Install looks simple.  There’s a + and - lead which I assumed was plug and play once all the install was complete.  The issue is that the rocker switch is also powered and stays illuminated even when the vehicle is turned off.  Obviously, this will drain my battery.  There are no instructions.  Any ideas?  Thanks!12DEE5FB-243F-41AC-A6C6-38BE055DE6A5.thumb.jpeg.bb8fd56e68bf259bf301fcabfe815dca.jpeg73891439-2232-44E6-AD95-8CD54790B7B0.thumb.jpeg.a238dd7f5c04512855c122dc9a6042fe.jpeg3435D74A-5DED-4D73-BD11-7BA23D46B07D.thumb.jpeg.aeede927bb9ea40c5f7e3349fd2db796.jpeg

Behind the switch panel there is a 3 post bus bar,1 post is your ground, 1 for always hot, and the 3rd is a switched 12v with the ignition. You need to run the power from your rocker to the switched post. I don't recall off hand which is which but a multimeter or test light can help you there. I believe the is at least 1 post on here with some pictures of the bus bar if you try a search.

Good luck, and share some pics when you're done.

Really?!  The switch panel in the dash?  That would make great sense.  Thanks for your help, much appreciated.  I’ll post pics for sure.  So far I’ve only added a windshield, side mirrors and now the rearview.  Didn’t realize how much I utilized an interior light!

Perfect solution!  Up under the center console is a + and - post tucked up tight.  I didn’t remove anything and decided to fight the space but theses are hot when the key is on only.

Micah 

welcome to the forum and enjoy the new ride!

 If you have a lone star edition I assume you may have plastic headliner at front of roof and possible fabric headliner on the rest. 
there will be a power stub being the plastic headliner as well. Then you don't need to run wires from dash to mirror. 
enjoy
