Just ordered this now. Contacted the seller and he can get red, white or blue for Focus. Should save fumbling about on these dark evenings looking for the ignition key hole......


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320792777186&ssPageName=ADME:X:AAQ:GB:1123

I have the fitting instructions, will put them up shortly, nice Saturday morning job :)

Bought for £17 all in by the way, selling direct.

Look good,

Im guessing it goes on with the Interior light
Richiemac
Yeah, piggy backs onto existing loom blocks up in the roof, so no cutting. Instructions are WPS document and too big to upload, unless theres another way ?

how big of a job is it to connect a wire from dome light down the window column to the ignition??

Not a big one mate these kits come with the plugs needed to filter the power supply and full fitting instructions, ive purchased one myself i should get it tomorrow so looking foward to fitting,

if you reach up to the windscreen where the roof lining meets the glass you can pull lth lining doen just enough to route the cable inside the lining acroos to the door

then theirs no need to remove A pillar cover, just remove the rubber strip on the door and run the cable inside it doen to inside the footwell,

then up the steering coulmn in to the ignition.

although if you have footwell lights in your car you wont need to run a power cable down from the interior light as you can tap in to the power of the footwell lights, :P

[font="Calibri"][size="2"][i][b]Received my ignition ring light this morning, [/b][/i][/size][/font]

[font="Calibri"][size="2"][i][b]Very happy with it, fits perfectly in the surrounding slot and comes complete with the loom, so no need to purchase extra cables or splice in to any either, [/b][/i][/size][/font]

[font="Calibri"][size="3"][size="2"][i][b]I didnít run the cable up the pillar to the interior light i just run the cable down to the driverís footwell light and cut it to length then spliced in to the footwell loom its brilliant, lights up when i unlock the car, open the doors or switch off the engine.[/b][/i][/size]

since i dont have the footwell lights ide be interested to see how it fits to the courtesy light. and nope ive checked all the wiring no wires foir footwell lights mine was ordered specifically without them boo hoo
Preee
Linking to the Courtest is a simple one wire feed as Lenny described , picking up an earth from any where near to where your requirement is.

I like the Rings and would of fitted one if mine had not been keyless start , my start button lights up already , not that it would have fitted there.

Nice Guide,
Dont mean to rub it in about the footwell lights Arthur mate :(
but if you splice in to the footwell loom like i did when installing mine, you dont need to remove much of the interior

just the panel under the steering wheel which is 2 x T25 screws then the panel just clips off allowing enough space to fit your hand in and fit the ring,

and this kit is great if you dont have footwell lights active as you can splice the cable of the ring to the footwell loom activating the footwell lights too. B)

never thought of that i hate car electrics to be honest tend to avoid them but as you say a few led strips in the footwells 1 each side would the cable take it though havin the light to the ignition ring then being spliced to take the 2 leds as welli dont have and cant find any footwell loom at all

Dont worry mate, not a chance you would blow a fuse as led's run on a very low current,
to install the footwells bridging the power from the ignition ring you would need

2metres of Cable [url="http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Twin-Core-3A-amp-12V-Black-Red-DC-Power-Cable-per-5m-/170492569100?pt=UK_In_Car_Technology&hash=item27b226260c"]Click Here [/url]

to make an original ford job of it, these bulb sockets will clip in to the holders you have in the footwells

If your buying the led strips they will probably have enough cable on them to reach the loom of the ignition ring so you wouldnt need to buy the 2metres of cable,
just the splicing connectors.

and you cant go wrong mate,
the ignition light only has possitive and negative feed,
blue is the positive
Black is the negative

Splice in to each with the red and black of either the cable or footwell led strips, job done

everytome you then start, stop, unlock or open any of the car doors the lights will come on.

for extra precaution you can tape over all connections with electrical insulating tape. B)

cheers mate ive ordered the led strips and scotchlock connectors just have to wait till the ignition ring comes into stock sounds easy enough. can i scotchlock both the led strip +and negative wires to the ignition wires with 1 scotchlock or does it have to be a seperate scotchlock for each connection.i know im stupid with electrics lol
alkyz89
hey artscot79 heres a pic for you. this is the cable behind the glove box i believe to be for the footwell lights. the cable is black and orange

[img]http://i1123.photobucket.com/albums/l544/alkyz89/DSC_0156.jpg[/img]

i dont know if this cable does both light or just the passenger footwell as i havnt yet found another bunch of cable. if anyone could help it would b much appreciated.

if i found these cables had voltage is it just a case of cutting the block off the end and attaching the footwell lights using a connector block??

(also can you let me know if the picture works? not sure if im doing it right lol)

dont have it had glove box out and checked all the wiring and its not there if theres voltage then yes will be a case of fitting the connectors to them if those are the wires im sure they are the same colour as interior light solid orange and solid black

[font="Calibri"][size="3"]Aaron sorry to say mate,
that's not the footwell loom, the cables for the footwell lights are black for negative and orange for positive, Haynes manual also says these colours.[/size][/font]

[font="Calibri"][size="3"][/size][/font]

[font="Calibri"][size="3"][/size][/font]

[font="Calibri"][size="3"]Arthur[/size][/font]

[font="Calibri"][size="3"]Below is a diagram of two splicing blocks,[/size][/font]

[font="Calibri"][size="3"]The info is in each terminal to indicate what cable should be in each one,[/size][/font]

[size="3"][font="Calibri"]The way the splicing block works is when you close them on the cables with pliers or vice grips [/font][/size]

[font="Calibri"][size="3"]A blade comes down across both cables bridging the current to both cables.[/size][/font]

[font="Calibri"][size="3"]Hope this helps mate. [/size][/font]

[img]http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss192/lennymanwoods/SpliceBlockDiagram.jpg[/img]
[font="Calibri"][size="3"]Alternatively if the cables for the led strips is very thin, you may be best get a Stanley blade and rubbing up along the cable gently strip the rubber insulation for a length of around 10-15mm on the cable leading to the ignition ring, (like pealing a carrot) taking care not to cut through the copper part.[/size][/font]

[font="Calibri"][size="3"]Then strip the cable leading to the footwell light and wrap this cable around the bare copper piece you have striped on the cable leading to the ignition ring light,

[/size][/font][font="Calibri"][size="3"]Once wrapped tape up the connection with insulating tape,
[/size][/font][font="Calibri"][size="3"]If you don't need the splicing connectors then, I'll buy them off you mate as im sure ill use them somewhere sometime. [/size][/font]
artscot79
Cheers mate they do look thin but both the positives twisted together and sliced with the scotchlocks should be fine and as u say some electrical tape just to be double sure u cn have the spare scothlocks mate wnt need them all

cheers lenny any ideas wot these cables are for?? and if i wanted the ignition ring and footwell lights am i best to start with the loom suplied with the ignition ring fit that then splice into those for the footwell light feed? also wud i need to attch some sort of fused device??

[/quote]


Not sure what the connector is for mate, ill check the haynes at a later date and see what i can come up with,

as for connecting the footwell lights mate,
the easiest way would be to purchase the ignition light and tap in to the loom of it,
then run a new cable from the ignition light loom to each footwell light directly,
dont tap in to the footwell loom that is already there as it also leads to parts of the engine
and it is not recommended to send power to places that it is unknown what it actually does, as it may cause trouble in some areas.


as for the fuse, its not essential as the centre light is on a fuse already and the power is being brought from it, the lights all run on very low current so you dont need a bigger fuse neither,
but if you want you can purchase an inline fuse at 3amps but not really required mate.

any more questions just ask B)

Are there anyone that do green ones also is this only possible with mk2's as I have a mk1 hence why I would like a green one. Cheers guys
alkyz89
ok lenny few questions for you... Ive got the standard single dome light and i changed the bulb for a white LED bulb... so when the light dims it doesn't turn off completely, even when the car is off and immobilized... will this give me a flat battery?? at the minute when exiting the car i switch the dome light into the off position but its quite annoying lol.

and if i attach the ignition ring and footwell lights will they do the same or do they turn off completely??

did you say your friend has the black custom heater controls and white ignition ring in stock?? cant remember his ebay account lol

cheers for your consistent help lol
jgriff
the reason your light stays on but only in a dim sense is because somethin got strained slightly when you were opening the casing. If you press your finger up against the lense the light will probably go off. The reason i know this is because ive done the same. It wont make your battery go flat as i dont touch mine at all. As what it will do with the other light im not sure

the led runs on a very low current compared to standard lights, it will not flatem your battery because

for example: you can power 1 led for 9 years from a single 9v Duracell Battery

my guess is the bulb is taking longer to go out due to the slow use of power by the led bulb, its taking it longer to consume the power left in the cables,
or their is a problem with your 3 way switch in the light unit
also as John says remove the light unit and try pushing the cables back in to the unit.

also try opening and closing all doors incase the light is staying on due to the door not closed properly,

if none of that works id change for a different led bulb mate,


the problems you are experiencing at the momment wont effect the operation of the ignition ring or footwell lights,
as these connect to the loom and not the light unit itself


these parts tap in to the loom before it reaches the interior light and they all fade out 30seconds after the car has been locked or engine started so no problems,

his email is [email="fastfocuscustomparts@live,ie"]fastfocuscustomparts@live,ie[/email]

and his listings are here : [url="http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/170729682920?ru=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%3A80%2Fsch%2Fi.html%3F_from%3DR40%26_trksid%3Dp4712.m570.l1313%26_nkw%3D170729682920%26_sacat%3DSee-All-Categories%26_fvi%3D1&_rdc=1"]Click Here [/url]

best to email him if you want a ignition light and get one reserved before they go on sale through ebay to gurantee yourself one,
that how i got mine, he will then agree a time to list it on ebay for you to purchase and send you the link to buy.
also from reading his listing he only has the climate controls in red grips at the momment but other colours expected to arrive soon.

cheers for the replys ill have a lil look but im sure it hapend with 2 other different leds i tried but as soon as a normal bulb goes bak in its fine... i thought it could be that leds dont dim down to nothing maybe so there will always b that glow... have you guys got an led bulb in ur dome light??

[font="Times New Roman"][size="3"][/size][/font]
alkyz89
ok so are u suggestin that the leds dont fade out completely??
Preee
Maybe it is just using the voltage remaining in the wires , i know my TV LED takes at least 2 minutes before it goes off if i switch power off on the socket, how long does it stay on for? , have you checked back once the mileage light goes off after about 10 minutes.
jgriff
Yea mine stays dim after the doors lock but have checked it after a while and it does eventually go off
alkyz89
oohhh ok i don't know, i stick it in the garage lol i never leave the light on because i was worried id get a flat battery lolol shows how much i know lol well i have left it on now so i will check after dinner i guess

but i could do an hours drive and the light would still be dimmed?? confused.com lol
Preee
Have you got a multimeter to check the wiring , it could have a bad connection to still be pulling power .
[u]Or[/u]
Once you have turned the car off , remove the light and see if it glows if you disconnect the wires , it could be a capacitor either in the Led or in the circuit and because the LED use's so little power its taking so much longer to discharge the capacitor , where as a bulb will burn off the energy stored alot faster.

I would say the actual power ford use to the curtesy lights is cut , then the fade is due to a capaitor draining to give the fade effect.But the LEDs your using use so little it takes much longer to drain the capacitor in the circuit.

Simple test try and wire it so the bulb is also in the circuit and see if the bulb then drains all the power , if it does then you know its a capacitor and it will not drain the battery as the power has been stopped as it should

Hi alkyz89. I have also fitted an LED festoon bulb to replace the stock bulb. I was worried about the LED staying on, albeit very dim when leaving the car. However, after checking several hours later, it does go out completely. After reading some of the posts on the forum, I am happy to leave it be as I reckon it is just using the residual current in the circuit as LED's need very little power compared to a filament bulb. Takes a bit of getting used to, though. lol. :)

sadly the green version isn't being made anymore. Is it difficult to change the LEDs?

Cheers!

Im sure it looks great arthur mate, What colour of controls, ignition ring and footwell lights did you buy?? looking foward to those pictures.B)

i recieved my red illuminated rocker switch this morning, have it fitted for the led's in the cup holders, so now i can swithc them on or off when the driving lights are on i can switch the cup holder lights off to save the life of the led's

changed to a red light rocker switch so as it lights up the cubby hole too when its on,
