connecting extra interior light

Recommended Posts

hi there, looking to add 2 8cm LED strips to interior lights, as no radiator backlight, radio and only 2/3 dashlamps for now (new wiring put in, not all connected up yet)

both came with usual red & black cables, and tape ready on backside...

where is easiest to connect them onto?

cigarette-lighter cables splitting? they are connected, or somewhere better anyone?


Thanks guys,

You can take an interior light feed from the cigarette lighter socket or any of the dash bulbs. The glove boxlight is also permanently live with ignition on, so it depends on when you want them to come on. LEDs will usually have a small ballast or resistor pack with them, so check that this comes with your kit.
