Ok so I'm going to go ahead with this project and connect into the Reverse light wire harness... So now I have two questions that I'm hoping an electrical guru may be able to answer...
I am going to be connecting an LED, so is it OK to connect to the existing reverse lights positive wire for power OR should I connect a relay to this power wire and then connect to LED? I'm sure the Relay way is smartest but if I go that route, will it then cause a light out Error somehow? I currently have my euro fogs running LED bulbs and tied directly into the brake lights (no relay) and I get zero errors so that's why I was going to try tapping directly into the reverse wiring with this LED housing/wiring.
Thoughts for me to ponder?

I swear, my cars are like a girlfriend.
Sometimes its a rough ride, sometimes its smooth motorin'.
Sometimes she doesnt like how i treat her and sometimes i dont like how she behaves.
BUT at the end of the day, she loves it when I am inside her.
