When I was doing my retrofit I snagged power for my HID's relay from a larger gauge red w/ black stripe wire under the fuse box. It's always carrying 12v.

There should be a terminal with a 10mm bolt holding down the main fuse, you can use that.




that comes directly from the battery, so if you want something that only works with the ign. switch, let me know.

Not sure if thats what the NB fuse box looks like, but yes, the big wires from the battery basically.

To confirm- I used that same source for power for my HID fogs on my OE bumper (the 10mm bolted in place one). Then I split off the parking lights (side marker) over to the 12v foglight wire for the 12v signal for the foglight.
IIRC I did something like this. I jumped the 12v side marker power to the 12v foglight wire before the harness connector that is about 8" back from the foglight. Coupled with the jumper, you can use the foglight +/- as a signal to your new relay for the HIDs. This will also allow you to use the switch on the dash to turn them on and off.




I did finally find some new fog lights that are Miata specific replacements and are smoked. Will be ordering soon.

No, but it should still have the same fuse/terminal.
