    Default Interior Light Connection - Question

    Hi, I am thinking of putting some led strips underneath the door cards to act like puddle lights and also a red strip for the bottom of the boot (similar to this http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/s...8#BVRRWidgetID)

    Does anyone know if there is a 'tap in' point on the wiring within the door itself or will I have to run a cable from the interior lighting to each strip? Same question with the boot as well for the boot light so the strip will switch on with the boot light?

    Thanks.

    Cool

    hi there,
    my vectra has got lights in the doors facing back so they can be see from the rear so i would assume that there is probably some wiring already there as most use the same loom these days. I've considered doing the same and also putting lights in the footwells too that come on when the doors open. dont know if this helps

    Thanks truckdoctor for the reply.

    Its a shame they dropped this spec on the later Vectra's, it would have been pretty simple 'tapping' in to them!!

    I have a few days off in the week so I will get the door card off and have a play!

    Thanks again

    Depends what year. The early ones had red lights that faced backwards but I think these were dropped in 2003. Certainly in the facelift there is no feed in the doors....
