    Default Outside LEDlights in the bottom of mirrors

    I'm thinking about mounting some LEDs in the bottom of the outside mirrors to light up when coming to/from the car.
    I have seen that the license plate lights up as soon as I unlock the car, and I think also when stopping the engine. In both cases the light stays on for about 5 minutes or until the car is locked.

    Is it some place in the front of the car I can pick up this wire, or does it come from the REC?

    I didn't check the interior light, but does that work on the same way?
    Do you know how long they stay on?

    Until you put the key in or 30 seconds or so?, then that way there only on when your interior light on, which if you dont really use it is just with the fob or getting in and out...

    There's a thread flying about on how i did it, but i cant find it... But basically i got some 501 bulb holder that would fit the lights, then just used a bit of speaker wire from the Yellow/Grey dash light feed, like the cig lighter light etc... Run the speaker wire to the front of the car and slot it. Drilled the fogs from the top to slide a set in too and job done... these now work when the dash does, so fob lock, unlock and with light switch...

    You have to leave the old 501 lights connected and with bulb in but i just wrapped in tin foil and leave loose in the light cap. no issue and been like this ages...
