    I'm looking at adding a couple of light bars to my car. One is a 22" 120watt and the other one is a 42" 240watt can I run them both of them off of the same toggle switch and wiring harness.

    What's the amperage draw from the 2 combined lights compared to the amperage rating on the switch?

    240w + 120w = 360w ÷ 12v = 30amps. I hope you are using relays.
