Taking Live Feed From Interior Light


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have recently purchased a '06 plate mk 2 focus. I normally have my mobile phone to the top right of the windscreen so I can see and access it easily. What I would like to do is add power, along with a 3.5mm jack so I can play music and not worry about the phone going flat.

The 3.5mm jack I can cover with a extension cable using the aux connection, running through the car to the other side and up the (I hope) drivers side front column surround.

The power I thought I could take from the interior light, as in I could cut into the loom before the switch so that there is always a live feed regardless of the light being on or not.

Does this sound like a reasonable thing to do? Are there other alternatives?

Any help or advice appreciated.

I don't think the light loom has sufficient amps to charge a phone.

An option is to piggyback off the back of the lighter socket and run a cable under the dash and up the A pillar.
