Recommended Posts

I am looking to installing a glovebox ambient lighting strip in blue and with my car not having it from the factory the wires already there have no power. this is when i decided to wire them up with the sidelights but i am having trouble knowing which wire is for the sidelights as i cannot find any decent wiring diagrams. i am looking at doing this at the lights switch panel (where the fog light buttons are). if anyone knows which colour wire the sidelights are on i would appreciate it greatly. Also a picture may help me alot too thankyou!

Try the fuse board behind the glove box. Pick up power with a piggyback fuse holder. I cant ell you which fuse holder because I have found that every model is different including the same models.

I had my front and rear camers wired into 37 for permanent feed and 8 for ign accessory on a MY2013 Zs tdci but on a My2015 ecoboost Zs there is no wiring built in to the board, It's a case of probing with a meter.

i have taken your advice and they are working great but are a little too bright at night? have you any more tips on dimming them down abit? would a resistor on the positive wire work? and if so what size etc?
