Wiring footwell LEDS`
#1
Hi guys, how do I wire footwell LED's to the inside light on the car, so when you open the car door they come on and if I want the inside light on they come on with it without the door been open, any ideas please? Connect up wires to the inside light and have them coming down the door pillars to the lights in the footwell?

I've got heat shrink, I've got the cable (A LOT OF) I've got the neons ready so all I need is the help of you guys on the wiring side of things Tongue

Wire them to switch on the door!
Or very long wires and wire to the light it's self.

If you wire them to the interior light it works the other way around to what you'd think

You'd need to wire the positive to permanent live and the earth to the interior light feed iirc

You'd need to test the 3? Cables from the light unit though

Have you got a multimeter or car check?
