2014 E350 Illuminated Star Install

Hey Everyone,
I just bought an Illuminated Star off of Amazon! I hooked it up directly to the battery to test it, and it looks awesome!
I would like to install it permanently though, but I cannot find any information on how to do so because I have the Intelligent LED headlights. I would like for the star to turn on anytime the "eyebrows" are on. Can anybody help me on this wiring job?
Thanks!

Install one wire to ground the other to fuse 23 under hood. every time you start car it goes on. If you look in this forum under Illuminated star install you will find what you are looking for. But you have to look.

Yes, I have seen a lot of people saying fuse 23, but their fuse boxes look different 😊

I have the same car as you . I used fuse 23 it is in the same place as mine. I have a white star a red star and a Blue star. I prefer the blue star. They are connected with a quick disconnect to make it easy to swap out.

go to auto zone and get a piggy back fuse and use that to connect to fuse 23. You may want to run the wire going to fuse first under the dash then connect to a switch then to the fuse this way you can shut off the light if you want to.
