Are there any in or around the rear boot area or BCM.
BCM yes, thats there it originates from.
Or if you dont want to go into the BCM what about the number plate light. It comes on with the blipper.
Open the load net loops on the boot catch panel. Pull from bottom and the panel will clip off. Push the 2 or 3 plastic rivets through and the boot wall against the BCM should just pull out.
Do you mean the BCM (Body Control Module), behind the glovebox, or do you mean the REC (Rear Electrical Centre) on the left side of the boot / load area?
All lighting signals originate from the BCM as follows.
Note the BCM has 78 pins set out in four rows...
pin 17 grey/yel = Instrument illumination, heater panel etc illumination
pin 35 grey/yel = interior light
pin 74 grey/yel = lighter ring illumination.
Hope that helps
REC , thats the one
I've never looked at the pin outs for an REC unit, however there must be outputs for the rear door-switch illumination, the rear switch panels for the optional rear radio head unit etc.
Alternatively, what about a relay feed, controlled via the boot interior light circuit?
Would it freak the CAN system out if you took a feed from a tail light or the number plate light, say to a relay so as not to overload the side-light circuit.?
I know the pin outs for the BCM and the CIM, like the back of my hand, but this is no use in this situation
As above really, number plate lights are not monitored
