Thanks for reply.
You can fit front footwell sockets without fitting the illuminated ignition ring,
I personally like the ignition ring and it came with a moulded loom for easy plug&play in to the rear of the interior light,
However you can run a cable to the interior light and splice it in just the same without using the illuminated ignition ring,
I would like a ignition barrel light as i think it does look nice especially the fade effect.
Does this mean that if I install this ignition light it plugs into the interior light and i can take a feed from the wiring of the ignition light to power front and rear foot wells without cutting into the actual car wires?
Yes LED's have a better spread of light, they don't get even 50% as hot as standard gas filled bulbs and best match your stock interior illumination colour.
will the front foot wells be LED like the rear pods? also in your video are the rear and front foot wells bright as the ignition barrel shows? (the dark makes it a little hard to see lol!)
You will be tapping in to the interior light feed source, results all will fade on and fade off just like stock,
excellent Lenny I wanted this effect and your video shows this when you lock/unlock your car, Thanks.
since you will be in the process of running cables,
You could also purchase a 3smd led strip, very cheap,
Remove the bird bath panel from the rear of the centre console,
Line up the 3 led strip, drill 3 holes in line to allow the light pass through illuminating the bird bath pocket,
And wire it to your interior light feed to come on along with your night driving lights.
See my guide on front&rear foot well lighting for images and info on this thread here:
I Like this idea and may want to add this as well, first though a few questions:
does this mean that the bird bath will light up when the cars side lights ect are turned on?
I dont have a dimmer wheel will it matter?
are the LEDs in bird bath safe ie do they heat up or anything? (ie they wont melt the plastic lol!)
can they be isolated from the car wiring at any time if I ever have an electrical problem so I can keep the car wiring OEM to make sure any mods are causing the issue?
Thanks Lenny again and fro the parts list.
Now you have an idea of what I want to do whats the final list of things I need?
Will i order the ignition light first as i read here somewhere on forum it takes a while to be delivered
is all the wires you linked to safe in terms of electric current ect (just have to be sure as my knowledge of car electrics is ok but not as good as your Lenny so I wouldn't know a 10 am amp wire to a 240v wire lol!)
one more thing lenny what length do i need in the wires? I may need a little extra 40cm for error cuts lol!
