Okay so after having a golf a while ago and an astra this week i'm fed up with not having the submarine lights as I find it a good feature at night.
I have looked into buying the new unit from the fiesta:
for about £80?!?! Not worth the money as this looks just like the one in my focus but with the led slots:
So I turn the unit around and check the Haynes manual which says there is one Orange and Blue, one Black and Yellow finally one Black and blue.
I then noticed the extra Orange and Blue connector, connected to a large copper circuit, but powering nothing.
So I took the unit out the car and dismantled it:
And as I suspected the holes are there for the led's, just need to add them and drill two holes in the button surround to emit the light. So I de-soldered some red led's from an old ps2 controler (checked it was all working first)
Removed the copper section covering the hole and put the led in:
Plugged to test and nothing, obvs tried earthing the other side and also connecting to the negative wire already in place. I'm not an electrical genius, just like to try things .
Any help and advice is welcome as I don't want to pay £80!?! :S
