    illuminate buttons with OE lights on switch?

    Does anybody know if I can I make aftermarket buttons illuminate when the headlights and OE interior lights are switched on?

    At the moment they illuminate when depressed, but it would be more logical for them to light up with the rest of the dash.

    Any suggestions on how best to achieve this?

    Cheers

    What after market buttons do you have?

    If they have an 'illuminate' wire just wire the cars lights live to that.
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    Or wire them up to the light on the cigarette lighter.
