    Question Interior light help please

    Can someone help me wire up my new interior light...

    I only have TWO wires coming out from my headlining and need to
    know where the positive and negative wires need to go, thank you...

    I'm assuming...

    - '1' is for negative?
    - '2', '3' and '4' are for positive?



    Could be wrong


    Cheers all... PVS soon!!!

    they are bulbs... they don't have a specific positive or negative

    just follow the traces to where they relate on the bulb connection front and wire them up accordingly

    i think this is the same light as mine mate, is it out a cavy or something with maplights? anyway solder a wire onto pin 1, put a ring connector onto it, thats an earth. Use the metal above the light on the roof as an earth, be careful not to pierce the outer roof skin tho! Bridge pins 2 and 4 with a wire link, then put the red from your roof onto pin 2, then the grey onto pin 3 and that should be you.
