I used the one that previously illuminated the ash tray. So, I kept the ground (brown) wire and power wire for the LED. The ground needed to be spliced because it attached to the lighter. I cut and taped off the remaining unused wires and inch or so from the connector. I may decide to add a 12V power outlet somewhere in the console. Very simple and effective.
