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
http://www.ebay.co.u....._fvi=1&_rdc=1
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.

thanks mate,
i purchased the led units http://www.ebay.co.u....._fvi=1&_rdc=1
and extended the cable slightly by around 12 inches and spliced the two light units in to the one 12 inch cable under the centre console, then spliced the other end of the 12 inch cable to the orange and black loom for the front footwell lights,
here is a link to some cable to do both modifications if interested.
http://www.ebay.co.u...=item4aacf28d18 Posted Image then for the bird bath light i purchased a 3 SMD red led strip, http://www.ebay.co.u...=item20b1ae4e14
lined up the leds on the inside marked it with a pen then drilled three small holes through from the inside of the panel down in to the exterior pocket to allow the light pass through and used some electrical tape to hold the strip in place inside the panel and wired it to a interior light feed at the rear of the window de-mister controls in the centre console so it comes on with the driving lights and illuminates the rear centre pocket for the duration that the driving lights are active, but then when the doors are opened the whole rear footwell is illuminated by the activation of the rear footwell led units fitted under the seats.

i used the led strips for the rear which attatch to the seat frame the wiring is added to the underseat wiring for the sensor so it will allow the seat to move all the way back and forward

Try asking Ford how much they are.
I had to replace my gear surround panel and it cost £65 - for a bit of plastic?

Are these lights definitely linked to the main interior lights? I have a strange problem with my mk2.5 where the footwell lights come on/fade off exactly as they should but the main courtesy lights (front and rear) stay on all the time (as if the doors are open) no matter where the switch is positioned. Any thoughts?

sounds like one of the door sensors is faulty and registering the door as being open when its closed

the display is designed to go off after a period of time usually 30mins the door sensor wont effect that it will still go off as normal even if the door sensor is duff the dash display just holds information for a set period and so isnt directly linked with the light

I meant that if I sit in the car and open the door it shows the door as being open, if I shut the door it immediately shows it as not open, if I open it again is shows it as open, etc. So surely that display would use the door sensor? Any idea where these door sensors are - clearly the days of little switches in the door shuts are well gone!?
