Reaching Wire For Open Door Lights
This weekend I picked up 2 strips of red led lights to place on the inside of my doors to my 06 TJ. I'm attempting to wire it to that button that turns the lights on when the door opens (that way when I open the doors at night vehicles behind see it, sort of like a school bus stop sign). Can anyone advise on the best way to reach the wires to that little button so I can splice the LED wires in? This is my first electrical job I'm doing and would appreciate any advice I can get.
I did something similar in my '98 Wrangler. I actually have 6 strips spliced to my dome lights, so when I open up the doors, they light up. At first, I wanted to splice the wires (like you said) at the button where the door closes on, but instead I spliced it to the wire that led to my dome light on the roll bar. To be exact, there should be a bundle of wires on the roll bar that leads from the back of the driver's seat to the top of the roll bar where the dome light is. Well, at least for my TJ it is. Find the right wire and splice it together! Took about 15 minutes to wire up. Very easy and clean install!
