Hi guys, just finished the lower portion of my footwell lighting so now need to splice in to the interior light but unsure which colour wires to splice in to??
Help needed please.

trace the wires from the interior light down the passenger side pillar i used a loom from ebay that just plugs in to the lighting plugs and wired the footwell lights to there
stoney where are you lol....................................

Where you have the double connector on one side of the light casing touch the new wire to one terminal and then the other one, the one that works with the door open is the right one.
The other terminal will light the footwell lights no immediately as it's the permanent live feed to the on switch of the light fitting.
I'll try to suss the wires and terminals more accurately when I'm home.
Currently running the dogs on the moors.

Believe it will be the terminal laying flat (with arrow) on the left of the photo you need to connect to, check like i said above and you'll know for sure.
If the lights go on immediately without moving switches or with the door being opened then it will be the other one you need.

Chees artscot, electrics not my forte I'm afraid, started from scratch with the footwell lighting as had nothing there, managed to fit the bulb holders and all wiring up the a pillar to the interior light.....then I was stumped!! Lol

Thanks stoney, that's great will have another look on my lunch break tomorrow.

Ok mate, please do let us know exactly which wire you tap into as when I fitted my footwells i used a feed off an illuminated ignition ring so didn't have to go all the way to the courtesy light.

Yep will do stoney, thanks for your help mate!

In your illuminated ignition ring, i believe there was a plug where you could connect it to the courtesy light without the need for altering any cables...
Does anyone know if we can get such a connector to fit to the footwells?

Lol Footwell lighting success!!
All wired up and looking good!!
And stoney thanks for your help, the cable I needed to connect to was next to the one you said in your picture mate!!

So to confirm it was the one that sits sideways on the double plug side?
Good to know.
