    Vehicle : Mk1 renault scenic... I know I know but it drives

    Trim : Basic

    Engine : 1.6 16v

    Year : 2003

    Default Any Sparkies here?

    Well as some of you will of seen some lovely person smashed my windscreen last night so in attempt to prevent it from happening again.

    I want to wire in a security light.
    looking to see how complicated it would be?

    i am a qualified vehicle technician working with vehicle wiring an electrics daily. So I have an understanding of electrics. But my extent to house electrics is fitting new lights. To the connectors that are already in place.

    easyest way mate is wire it up with flex and a plug to put a 5amp fuese in the plug thats the simple cheapest way if you want the hardest way let me know lol

    Not the sort of thing i'd recommend, but If you do use a plugtop & flex (normally used as a temporary solution) then you might want to make sure its at least RCD or RCBO protected and clipped..

    Not every property in the UK has RCD's or RCBO's fitted though, and some still have perfectly legal BS:3036 rewireable fuses, also need to consider that some old power/lighting circuits may not even have a cpc, So you're assuming that the Socket is RCD/RCBO protected and safe when that may not be the case. then theres basic protection from things like abrasions, and impact which need to be considered when getting a cable out of the house and into accessories such as a light fitting..

    Seen to many "temp" installs that have ended up being the root of problems..
