Putting some LEDs in the trunk for more light...... HELP!

Post by elmo3000 on Mon Feb 22, 2010 11:37 am

Okay, so let's put this forum to the test.... I need some help with some electrical work.

I have some LEDs (with a positive and negative wire) that I want to put in the trunk of my car.... how and where would I need to wire then into if I want them to only come on when the trunk is open??

These are the LEDs that I have:



Or could I run them off a switch?? If so, how do I do this?? I have no idea at all, but more than willing to give it a go!!

I follow instruction well!

Thanks all!

You can tee off of the light in the trunk now if you want it to come on when the trunk is open. You can also hook it to a switch but would be alot more work for just one led. If you post your email or pm me I should be able to find the specs for the wires in the trunk.

Thanks for the input guys, I think I am having issues viewing those links..... working on a MAC!

I am also a complete muppet when it comes to these sort of things! I am very capable of doing the work, but just need some really good instruction!!
