    So this is strange, my dash lights went out I think faulty switch. So I put LED strips inside my cluster and ran it to the stereo. I hooked it to the stereo ignition wire and ground and then something went wrong. The fuse blew in the ACC#11 block and the stereo went out BUT! The LEDs were still on.
    Discounected the lights and replaced the fused and it blue again so I uped it to a 15AMP. Now I think its surging because it resets the stereo.

    Everything looks fine to me, I dont know why this is hapening and cant seem to fix it.
    One other thing, my LED lights flicker when I step on the brake. I'm thinking I can add a capacitor to make them stop flickering? Any one know why?
    Any help is greatly appreciated.
