You now find yourself in a position; Where you have connected your new puddle lights to the loom but theirs no power, dont panic. Because in this case, the puddle lights were not factory fitted so this also means they are not activated in the Gem.
I have connected wires to the wires for puddle lights but don't seem to light anything up
So to get power flowing to the puddle light loom in both doors. Locate the same orange/white cable in the footwells inside the car, where the cables come in from the door. Snip the cable in half to create two seperate cables.
Connect the section leading from the door to your active footwell light on the same side. Tape up the other section leading to the Gem.
Do this on both sides to obtain same results. If you find yourself in the position of no puddle light in mirror and no power in puddle light loom.
