Same connectors as supplied with OEM illuminated gear knobs.
You could probably find matching connectors on ebay or just cut the plugs off the wires and solder/crimp self adhesive LED strips to the wires.

Have you got a better pic of the 3 pin connector as it looks like a 3 pin fan connector you get in pcs. In which case you can buy phobya high intensity led strips that will plug straight in no modding.

Hi mark had a look at the phobya high intensity led strips will not fit .the female socket are for four wires not three. And the socket is the wrong shape here's a pic of the footwell socket it is L shaped

Just had a look at my ones in my pc and the leds come with a 4 pin inline molex and a 3 pin fan connector so you can run it via the motherboard or power supply. As for the l shape by the looks of it you would just need to file off the runners on the female side and job done.

The little runners on the bottom can be filed off and use some electrical tape to secure the 2 together

Just a thought

Another question. Does ambient lighting come on with the side/head lights?

Hi mark right the ambiant lights work same as the dome light. come on when they do and turn off when they do..but at night or when it is dark in a garage or tunnel ect. they turn on there must be a light sensors so they are not on all the time during daylight but they are on at night like the dash lights. Hope that explain it for you .

As fours600 has eluded to, the ambient lights do come on with a light sensor, which is located at the base of the windscreen on top of the dash... If you cover it over with something dark they'll light up :)
