they operate in time with the interior roof light,
so when the car is unlocked or a door is opened they will stay illiminated for some time then fade to off.
if you lock the car they will fade to off after around 30-40 seconds.
also while your on the subject of footwell lighting,
why not purchase some 3 led pods for the rear
fit them to the top of the rear footwell fan blowers.
then splice them in to the front footwell loom.
These are great too. Where do you connect the lights too Lenny. Not so up to scratch on all this yet. Thanks.
