Thanks for the suggestions.
Looking around for suggestions i would much prefer it to be on the interior dash lighting so that i could use the dimmer for it aswell, as sometimes may not want it so bright.
That would be really helpful if you could find that out for me as ive searched google with no answers
Would it be a case of just splicing into that? or would i need to add a switch?
Ive never hardwired any LED strips as my Footwells lights were already in place luckily and all other LEDS in previous cars i have just used the Cig lighter. But would rather not have cables running everywhere and extensions sticking out the socket
At the rear of the centre console switch for the rear window demist button,
Splice in to the Orange&black feed for lights on positive
Splice in to black for negative
Using some cable
Run a feed to a rocker switch, and fit it in the OBD port area of the dash,
Depending on what colour of leds you plan to fit, id advise purchasing an illuminating rocker switch to match,
This way, when your lights are active;
The illumination from the switch will also act as a light for the OBD pocket area,
Then run a feed from the rocker switch to your new lights.
