Question LED fuse question.

So tomorrow I decided that I'm going to do the Halo mod for the truck. But before I do that, I need to make sure the parts I need are in stock at my local Walmart because that's the only place that's open when i get off from work at 11pm lol. But before all that, I need to clean up my wires inside my engine bay. I have wires going to my LED strips in the grille, my viper alarm horn and my knight rider scanner. The Viper alarm horn will be separate from the rest but the LED scanner and grille I would like to wire them all up to a fuse, then a switch. What type of fuse would I need to take all that power? I have 4 LED strips and a LED scanner. Any help would be awesome that way I can go and get it after work and do all this tomorrow. Thank you.

-Jordan

Well I don't know the exact specs of what you have. However assuming you have it all wired up with 22-18 gauge wires, I'd start with a 5 or 7.5 amp fuse.
