    If it can be done (the light doesn't draw to much current for the circut) they would be on all the time at night. Could be distracting while driving depending how bright they are?

    You just trying to get around running a wire through the grommet from the door(s) to the car?

    Yeah one or two led,s wouldn't be too distracting if mounted in the bottom of the door pocket will have to have a go see if it looks ok when it stops raining. Lol

    I had thought about wiring some lights into the bottom of the door & correct me if I am wrong but is the interior light not switched from the door latch ???
    if this is the case then why not pick up the earth from the door latch & live feed from the window motor main feed which is live all the time ?
