Hood light and what shuts it off?
I'm thinking of wiring some high intensity LED strips under the hood instead of the hood light. But, what is the mechanism that shuts off the hood light? I totally see myself trying this and then seeing these lights never turn off.
The light bulb housing is very simple, a metal half dome fastened to the hood with two 5/16" screws. The wire that comes off the hood light is just the hot lead with a snap-together clip from the bulb wire to the wire going into the snake at the firewall. I was thinking to unhook this coupler and just tie my new hot leads to the flat connector inside, then take the negative leads and fasten them to the screw on the right side holding the bulb assembly. When testing this, the LEDs do work just fine. But how will they shut off?
