just when the doors are opened and the car is unlocked, the same way the interior light does,
but if you wanted you could fit a 3 way rocker switch and have them coming on and off like standard but the added feature of switching them on constant when your driving lights are on too.


Ah that's a cracking idea, definitely something to have a think about then! Thanks for all your help though mate

But if you have them already can the lights be changed? I haven't actually had a good look to see what kind they are! :blink:

I've only seen it done once. You'd need to be a dab hand with a soldering iron (tiny tiny LEDs soldered on to board)
There is someone that will charge £200 but change every LED on the car (ambient, dials, winow switches etc) to a colour of your choosing.

I did get a bunch of blue led switches made up for my Focus before, but after trading it I swapped them out for standards. That reminds me I better get them all listed!

Voted RED but in the pics I think Blue looks best, just think red is more in keeping with the existing lights

Look at the post by Nathan (no 6) here http://www.fordowner...twell-lighting/

That shows you the locations of the bulb holders. If they are fitted and wired then you just need to buy the bulbs in your colour choice, and they are £2 or so delivered for a pair on Ebay. Some cars have the wiring and holders in place, others have just the bulb hoilder but no wiring , others have nothing.

If the wiring and holders are in place then just slot a bulb in to check it's OK, and when you come to finally put in the LEDS remember they only work one way, if they don't light up rotate them 180* and try again.

its a mk 6 tho
