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
