I spliced mine directly into the parking light wire behind the headlight switch. On my '06 it was a brown wire but I would double check.

Thats if you purchase the wiring harness from Ford. My harness that came with the lights didnt have a plug in on the end, just the wire. Thats why I spliced into the lights behind the switch.

I highly recommend by small bolts with washers anstead of using the supplied screws!
