Hey All,

A mate of mine got some neon lights fitted under the driver and passenger of
his polo, and he wired them through the door light switches so when he opens
his doors the neon's light up.

My question is: Does anyone know where the wiring for the doors switches are
in a 98 celica or how I would go about doing the same?

and secondly, is this alot of work for nothing?

Regards

Michael

The wiring for the door switches will be in the "B" pillar, probably coming
up from the door sill. To access, remove the interior trim from the "B"
pillar.

Aw, c'mon! I'm over 40 and I like the idea! (Only lighting up when the door
is open, that is!)

Be aware that by hooking into the door switch, you are switching GROUND, not
voltage.

You can also tap into the fuse block. What this will do is, when you open
ANY door on the car, the neons will light up.
IIRC, this is also a GROUND switched connection. So, you will want to have
the +12V wire connected to a constant voltage supply, and the -(Ground) wire
connected to the door switches.

Buy the toyota manual for your car. It's got the entre wiring diagram
and, once you have it, you'll find hundreds of other reasons why
having it is a good thing[tm].
