Wiring for LED bar on Limited with Start/Stop button

Hey Jeep gurus!

I just treated myself to a 2016 Limited and have since been drooling over all cool images on this forum.

So now I want roof mounted LED bars too! And cool OTRATTW Switches

My only problem is.. I have a Start/Stop button on my Limited and my dealer tells me that this causes problem for the wiring. I want the new leds to be handled by the cars regular head light control, using the OTRATTW switches to optionally turn the LEDS off.

Is there any guru in here who has done this? Anyone seen tutorials/instructions anywhere?

Also, I looked into the sPOD but will only be having 2 switches. Any good options you guys know of?

I used a wiring loom that came with my lights. Switch under the steering column that runs between the relay coil and the green/white wire at the back of the headlamp (high beam trigger). Other side of relay coil to ground. Power from battery to a fuse to one of the contacts on the relay, other relay contact to positive on light, negative on light to ground.

The stop start function and push button ignition have no effect. As usual a dealer that has no idea what he is talking about .
