The Hyperlight system gets around the extra current draw problem by just using the brake light circuit as the "trigger" to engage the Hyperlights, while using a separate power tap to actually draw the power to make the lights work ...
either a fuse block or "stealing" from the alarm/tire pressure circuit.
"Proceed with caution"
You are correct. I have prepared a simple drawings as attached.
A relay will be used to trigger the led driver. LED driver will be connected to the battery. I need to check if I have the correct colors of wires for the existing stop lights though.
From the hyper lite manual it appears that brownwire and gray with black wire should be tapped into.
