    Default Boot light

    Hey all

    Were there only certain models which had lighting in the boot? Or is just facelifts?

    Pretty sure my car aint got one (pre-facelift 54 1.9 cdti energy) but I'd def like one, I play in a band so spend a fair bit of time using the boot..

    I don't think the boot light was included on some basic spec models, but the majority of cars do have one, and to be honest it's not that brilliant. It should be on the left hand side of the boot, might be worth checking as you might just have a blown bulb or something. If not, then I'm sure others can advise on how to wire one up. Some members have used led strips as these are much brighter than the stock light.

    Some garages disconnect them (they like leaving the boot open all day on the sales forecourt). You'd think they'd know that after 5 mins the light automatically goes out to save the battery from going flat.

    Well guess what, my car DOES have a boot light, I'd just never noticed the housing before as there was no bulb in it!

    So off I went to halfords to get a bulb, and we now have light in the boot, although as others have said it ain't nothin special, but certainly better than nothing!

    Thanks again to you guys! What mod next? I think I now have the modding bug.......
