The Ambient Lighting Installation Guide!!!!!!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

 

for the glovebox lighting i have bought an led strip to put there but i was just wondering which wires to splice into for both black and red from the strip... i have located the white wire and the black and blue wire coming from the top of the glovebox but i cannot seem to get the strip to turn on?

Leds are polarity sensitive, maybe they are wired into the wrong way. ie - to + instead of + to +.

I understand but there are only two wires coming from the led strip which i presume to be a live wire (red) and an earth wire (black). ive tried connecting both to either of the ambient lighting feeds but neither seem to work? I dont have a multimeter and so cant test which wires are which so if anyone has a wiring diagram thatd be great. and as you can probably tell im very new to electronics haha

Sorry to come into this topic years since it was originally opened, I am new to mk 7 I have just bought a 2010 1.6 titanium which already has the lighting above the glovebox in place, however I have been having a little dig around and it seems that fully ambient equipped cars (from the factory) have the cup holders and the cubby hole below the heater panel lit up too, should I be able to fit the stock light strips and wire them up by tapping into glovebox lighting?
